Very sad news - just learned that Warren passed Oct. 29 - only 72.

Spoke to him after many years at the 2013 Glen Sept. SVRA vintage races that featured the HTA group.

Warren was a top competitor in T/A, IMSA, and Can-AM - see   racingsportscars.com

I guess it is fitting that we just found this picture of one of his Camaros at the 1971 SCCA Runoffs held at Road Atlanta.

Those are two great shots of Warren and his earlier Camaro. Many thanks for posting them. If you've got any more we'd love to see them.

Thanks Jon.

I met Warren in the showroom at Hoselton Chevrolet sometime in 1968 after his stint with Penske racing. The car you see in the driveway was not a body in white, it was actually a showroom car right from the dealer. We completely stripped the car down to a unibody and subframe and constructed the racecar exactly to the same standards as Penske racing. I shudder to think about what the collectors would pay currently for the houndstooth interior, instrument cluster, smog equipment, in the remainder of the OEM equipment we sold off for pennies on the dollar. The team Warren put together, comprised basically of enthusiasts, turned out one amazing race car. That car was the 1st, and only, car constructed from the ground up by the team. Ultimately the car was totaled at Road Atlanta. The remains of the car were brought home, stripped of all usable components, and put out to pasture. At that point in time Hoselton Chevrolet was in the process of constructing a new service center behind the dealership. The body and subframe were placed on the construction area, covered with dirt and remains buried there to this day.

Cheers,
Bob

Bob,

Terrific photo of Warren and Ron. Thank you! You've got some great photos in your collection.

Very intriguing info on Warren's orange '69 Camaro. I made an assumption that Brock Yates was driving Warren's old '69 at the 1971 Watkins Glen Trans-Am since the car was the same color, generally looked the same other than the car number, and was entered by Hoselton. If that's not the case, can you enlighten me (us) further? Would be great to get the facts right.
