Great video from CarFilms featuring interviews with Roger Penske and Mark Donohue and their careers up to about 1968. Scenes from LeMans, Daytona, Sebring, Bridgehampton, Road America, Riverside, and many others. CanAm. TransAm. USRRC. Lolas. Chaparrals. Jim Hall. Worth watching.

I’m pretty much stuck in the ’60s, and was at the Riverside International Raceway every time the gates were open. I was a diehard Chaparral and anything Chevy powered fan.

Which reminds me that back in 2009 I uploaded all of my home racing movies from the ’60s and early ’70s on Dean’s Garage. Click here if you want to watch. Oldies soundtrack.

Take a break from the madness and perpetual crisis in the world today and relive a time when things made more sense.

  1. Fantastic viewing, thanks for sharing this, Gary. There’s no denying Roger Penske’s ambition and drive but isn’t it pleasantly reassuring of Donohoe’s almost schoolboy charm? As you say, take time out from all the madness and watch something great.
