Pacific Raceways ’63

What a tremendous shame that on-board sound recording wasn’t part of the package with 8mm film cameras. Oh to have the audio of the Cobras, GTOs, and Corvettes; not to mention the Lotuses (Lotii?) and Coopers in the sports racers group. I guess I shouldn’t complain, at least we have the images from this track, which has beaten the odds and is thankfully still with us.

I particularly love the shots starting at about 1:39 of that marvelous series of esses through the forested hills. It makes Seattle look like Nürburg.

Thanks to Matthew from Hell For Motors for pointing us to this video.
