In My Own Words

By #STC60TS56749L Transcribed by Robert Frassinello It is the darkest day of my life: June 27, 1968.

British Sports Car Hall of Fame

By Robert Goldman A million years ago, seemingly, I was standing by the fence taking photos at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s famous corkscrew. A gentleman strolled up and started to chat.
