This film produced for public distribution by American Motors Corporation was about the racing season for the AMC Javelin in it’s first year at Trans Am races. George Follmer and Peter Revson and Mark Donahue were drivers of these cars prepared by Roger Penske. This was the car that gave AMC it’s first big racing credentials. This video was made from an original film negative. 240,000 Javelins were produced by AMC between 1968 and 1974 model years.
A tribute to the late Dan Gurney, one of motorsport’s greatest racers and innovators, and the first driver ever to win races in Formula One, Nascar and IndyCar.
On August 9, 1975, Mark Donohue set the closed course speed record at Talladega Superspeedway driving a Porsche 917-30. He averaged 221.160 mph around the circuit, reaching a top speed of 241 mph at the end of the straightaways. This record came only one week before Donohue was fatally injured in practice for the Austrian GP. The world record would stand for only four years but remains as the fastest lap around Talladega.
Porsche 917, Ferrari 512, Lola T70 – perhaps as great a concentration of sports car heritage as you could find in a single pit garage. And Motor Sport was at Donington Park to drive them. Your chauffeur? Dario Franchitti.
