Those items were only off the cars for the first race at Laguna Seca. After that, SCCA felt that enough examples had been built for them to be considered legal.

Mike, I was glad to be able to save/repair your photo links as they are a very valuable part of this thread.

That's nice that you've found a serviceable Firebird body to use for a replica of Titus' 1970 Firebird car. I never understood the (apparently) purposefully hideous design of the rear flares on that car but if you're going to make an authentic replica, you've got to stay true to how it really was.

You're welcome, Tim.

Coronado Island is nice however I personally prefer the natural race track settings of Sears Point (Sonoma) and Laguna Seca.

429 East Alondra Blvd. is the address I have seen mentioned.

Here's a nice article from Competition Press & Autoweek that gives some good insight into Roy Woods and his team.
Many thanks to Craig Wheeldon for sharing this with us. Yes, Carling did sponsor Roy's cars starting in 1973.

Al, I'm pretty sure it was Roy who had the deep pockets but I don't know where the money came from. I'm pretty sure he was not just a front for somebody else's money.

Mark Ellis use to be a crew member for Roy Woods' race team back in the early '70s and he was kind enough to scan these photos from his personal collection for all of us to enjoy. The captions come directly from him. Many thanks for sharing these with us, Mark. I'm sure you have some great memories from working for the RWR team.


Frank Martinez, Suzan Ellis and Jeff Woo sitting on the back of the RWR Trick Truck mid-week at Donnybrooke.



Follmer, with his back to us, talking with Roy and Jerry Schwarz before the 1972 Lime Rock Trans Am.



Judy Stropus, she knew the relative positions of the entire field for the entire race.



Roy's car under the canopy attached to the Trick Truck.  That's Ken Ulrich just in front of Roy's girlfriend.



Attendee inspection.



Cars on Beefheart shortly after arriving at Great Barrington, MA (near Lime Rock)

I posted that previously in the "Crossram manifold" thread but here it is again for convenience. (Jon Mello Collection)
