Thanks Jon, for posting these layouts. Unfortunately I never got to race at RA in those early T/A days - the track was just too far away for us to get back in time for work on Mon. AM and our budget was usually depleted by the time the race was held. I have spectated there many times starting in the early sixties. The town of Elkhart Lake is a neat resort town close to the track. I was last there in 05 I think when they had the big group 6 crash on Sunday during the Kohler vintage wknd.
I did get to Laguna but not until the 80 T/A race in the first ex Dick Hoffman 71T/A camaro. It was that original layout that Jon has posted. I remember some transmission shifting problems in practise and only got a few practise laps in. As a result qualified way back and got involved in a big crash that ended our day. I remember a very challenging and very fast layout. The crash also meant we couldn't race at Riverside the next wknd so I missed out there, although Dick Hoffman drove the 67 camaro at the 69 T/A race. He was the "camera car" that you have seen a photo of.
