Corvette ‘Spirit of America’

Corvette ‘Spirit of America’

A ‘wide body’ Corvette race car from John Greenwood.  There’s a Revell kit available for this one, and I had thought that the way they had replicated the headlight covers was a bit ‘clunky’ – but after seeing the actual car, it’s pretty accurate.  This particular car doesn’t have a lot of ‘in the day’ racing history, but does frequent the vintage racing circuit.  I’d never say the car was pretty, but it sure looks brutally efficient.

 

Matra Sports Prototype

I believe this is a 1968 Matra MS630.  Sort of a unique car, so I decided to split it out from the general photos of the Daytona Classic 24.  Sort of reminds me of a GT40 from the rear when the bonnet is removed. I don’t know of anyone that makes a model of this car.

Daytona Classic 24 – Track Shots

Daytona Classic 24 – Track Shots

Various cars on the track on Saturday and Sunday, including Saturday night.  Some were shot through the fence, but it’s not too distracting.  There are a few of the night shots that I’m very pleased with, considering I wasn’t using a flash and had to increase the film speed and reduce the shutter speed.

Daytona Classic 24 – Sunday

Daytona Classic 24 – Sunday

By Sunday things were winding down.  There were still cars on the track, but as the various classes finished their races the crews started putting things away, draining fuel, and getting the cars into the trailers. Highlights of this group are some additional shots of Lola T-70’s, some detail photos of the 917/10, some detail of a Monza, and a whole bunch of general shots of the paddock and cars.
