Photos from Donnybrook/Elkhart in 70-74??
« on: July 05, 2011, 07:42:15 PM »
Hello,

New guy here, looks like a great Forum!

I currently own and vintage race a '68 Camaro driven by Leigh Gardner in '70-71 at Donnybrook and RA, (car #67), in '72-74 it was driven by Dave Steffens, Lynn Woodward, Howie Fairbanks and Dick Kantrud (car #64) at Donnybrooke, RA ('72-'74), Watkins & Edmonton (just '73).  Does anyone happen to have any photos from those races? 

Thanks so much!

Welcome. These are the only two I have. The first at Edmonton in 1973 and the second at Road America in 1973. Both with Dick Kantrud driving, as far as I know. Sorry the second pic only has part of your car.

John Sheffland in 1971.  He was the car owner and raced it in the LOL Region but hired pro drivers to run in the TA races.

Very nice, I like the white with blue combo and a RS to boot.

Thanks for posting more vintage photos of the car. If I run across any others, I'll try and post them here.
