Oscar Koveleski’s Lap of Road Atlanta

I’m a huge fan of projected 8mm home movies shot to video and uploaded to YouTube. I’m an even bigger fan when the film is from Oscar Koveleski collection and he narrates a lap, describing the obscured driving line, elevation changes, and corners of one of America’s great tracks. So let’s take a spin around Road Atlanta with Oscar in his Auto World McLaren M8B. I’d take his advice, this was probably filmed the weekend he took 4th in the Can-Am Road Atlanta race in September 1970.

  1. Oscar , Fantastic old school filming of 1 lap around Road Atlanta in your Can Am McLaren. It was an honor to drive later on for you and Auto World in the Jerobee McLaren M8B. More recap can be seen of that 71 season at
    The PRDA & Can Am lives today in historic racing !

    I was up at Road Atlanta last month and it’s incredible to see how much that area has matured! Great to see the old school Mclarens in their heyday and in Papaya Orange to boot!

    Oscar won the Runoffs in `70, didn’t he? 1970 ASR National Champ? I think so…
