|The interest in the wonderful cars we used to drive a few years ago, or the cars we SHOULD have been driving, if there were any justice in the world, has exploded. Many of these cars have returned to the race tracks, while others have been turned loose on the public roads in vintage rallies. Victory Lane Magazine, which gives me a monthly forum to babble about the Rally Game, is a west-coast publication covering vintage racing events nationwide.|
Here's the last thing I wrote for my Victory Lane column, The Rally Round.
Here's whatever else I've written lately for Victory Lane (this particular piece is an article on the 1996 running of Targa Tasmania, surely a grail for vintage rally junkies).
|If you have ever been unaccountably fascinated with one marque, if your heart stirs to memories of racing's Golden Age, if you remember Mario Andretti's finest hour, then you will want to go immediately to Ron and Val Bennett's Lotus site , from which you can link in so many Lotus directions that you'd think they still had an F-1 team. . . .|
|Or if your interests lie along vintage racing lines, tempered by wit and a certain congenital insouciant je ne sais quoi best described in sociopathology textbooks, you may well find a kindred brotherhood among the members of Age & Treachery Racing (one of the few social organizations that will have me. . . Wait! I take that back! There's always the International Association of Turtles. . . .)|
For other Formula One information, you might visit Jesper's
Formula One page (though I couldn't reach the server in late October.
. . pay your bills, man!) or Farzad's
F-1 page; believe me, from that page, you are in F-1 heaven!
You can even fill out a survey regarding your favorite F-1 drivers, current
and vintage. . .(You may notice that the Yanks seem to have fallen
out of this particular pursuit, except for about seven of us. We keep waiting
for the opportunity to link to the Formula One Spectators' Association,
but FOSA CEO-For-Life George Goad is what you might call a Microchip Luddite.
If you can still read things on paper, though, the FOSA newsletter is worth
it: Call 213-658-5884 with that neglected instrument over there on the
desk. . . yes, that one: It's called a telephone.)
