ARRC Coverage from SCCA's Sports Car magazine. The American Road Race of Champions race at the end of
the 1972 race season crowned Warren Agor and his Camaro as the National Champion in A-Sedan that year.

The "Carl Shafer" Camaro referenced in this article is the 1969 Camaro my father purchased from Carl and raced from 1974 thru 1984, winning the GT1 National Championship in 1980.  The car was built by John and Burt Greenwood and was driven to the 1969 A Sedan National Championship by Bill Petree (owned by Greenwood).  It then went to Marshall Robbins, then Shafer, then my father...

I found some cool color photos taken by Stu Brennan at the Schaefer Trans Am events held at Lime Rock Park, Lime Rock, Connecticut on May 6, 1972.  He took 13 pictures of the regular Trans Am race as well as several more of the 2.5 challenge.  I will post the pictures of the over 2.5 race.  To see the pictures of the 2.5 challenge click here: http://www.pbase.com/sb_photos/lrtransam72

I apologize if these photos have already been posted in another thread.  I seem to remember seeing them somewhere before but I couldn't locate them in the short time I had to look.  If they have, I think they should be in the this thread as well.

Stu Brennan also attended the next race of the 1972 season at Bryar although he only took pictures of the 2.5 challenge race.  These pictures can be seen here: http://www.pbase.com/sb_photos/bryar72

Stu Brennan also attended the IMSA Camel GT races held at Bryar on September 24, 1972.  Entered in this race was Mo Carter's 1970 Camaro that he had previously raced in the Trans Am.  See these and other pictures from this race, including a Ford Pantera pace car, here: http://www.pbase.com/sb_photos/bryarimsa72

Stu Brennan also attended the 1972 New York Auto Show and he took pictures of two of the 2.5 challenge participating cars that appeared at the event.  The current New York Auto Show is held in April so if it was the same back then this would have been before the start of the 1972 season.  See these pics and others taken at the event here: http://www.pbase.com/sb_photos/ny72
