Hello and welcome back, again! Long time readers of this blog know that I am quite the racing history junkie and today we will indulge ourselves with some lost photos. I have a friend who recovered these pictures from a dumpster and sent them my way; most are not indycar pictures, but this is the only avenue I have to release them.
I have no idea who the originating photographer was or even some of the venues that these pictures were captured. Even given the presence of Formula 1 and Formula 2 machinery in this gallery, I believe that all of these were all taken in the US, so if you think you can decipher what facility some of these were taken at let me know! included in the gallery are F1, Can-Am, USAC (indycars), and what looks to be some kind of pony series. Know venues are the Indy 500 parade, IMS and the old Texas World Speedway.
Captures of AJ Foyt, Paul Newman, James Hunt, Mario Andretti, Al Unser and many more are included. The pictures are high resolution so be patient when loading this page and even more when opening specific pictures. I am very interested in your feedback in determining driver/location/series/year so please help if you can!
