Hey, I don't see any 917 photos. My lingering memory of Riverside was Mark Donohue going through Turn 6 in the big car. My Dad said "Hey, watch this!" MD would hit the fast pedal at the same exit spot EVERY lap, and the rear would jump sideways about 6 inches, and the car would hook up and just be GONE. Donohue was both the most consistent and the most ballsy driver out there by a long shot. I watched pretty closely the rest of the race, and not even the other 917 drivers could pull this off! And of course Donohue ran away with the race.

Oh, and my other lingering memory was me, sideways through Turn 6 in my 912! I had wanted to do that since I was about 5 years old!!!!!! Talk about a dream fulfilled....

cheers
