Peter Gregg's class win in the season-opening 1967 Daytona Trans-Am - see the separate post on the subject - was celebrated in a Porsche Panorama piece in March of the same year. The article suggests Gregg had sold the car, but borrowed it back for the race. The prep seemingly consisted of a straight-through exhaust and re-jetted carbs with 150 mains, a 100 litre tank, Koni shocks and a rear anti-roll bar, a limited slip diff, 6 inch American Racing rims and CDI ignition. The car reportedly ...

I researched the history of an early 911 a year or two back. It was a spring 1965 car in light ivory ordered through the celebrated Brumos dealership in Jacksonville, Florida.

He supplied some pictures of Peter Gregg – the race-driver owner of Brumos – flinging some early cars around some circuits and asked if any ...

The experienced racer ordered it with a rally kit and special engine mods, a Nurburgring ratio gearbox, a limited slip diff, a 100-litre tank, a roll hoop and a passenger sports seat. At much the same ...

Some pictures from the March 1960 FJ race at Sebring via the excellent Barcboys site www.barcboys.com. The event was right on the transition from front- to rear-engined cars and, within the Cunningham team and elsewhere, from Stanguellini to Cooper and Lotus. Hansgen put the Cooper T52 on pole, but dropped out of the race, which was won by Hall in an Elva 100 from Crawford in a Stanguellini and Chamberlain in a Lotus 18. Apparently Crawford was ...
