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.
