Follow this link to the IMSA photo group that I started on Flickr. You'll find over 1700 photos of old school IMSA cars to help bring back the glory days.

Many thanks for starting this thread. My Dad has a bunch of pictures of the cars on track and in the garages. I want to say that he took them somewhere between 85-87.

I have a request; does anyone have any recent pictures of the track? I heard there are still remnants here and there.

Went to 6 to 8th grade nearby 1966 to '70, could hear the drags qualifying (Winternationals?) friday afternoon pe and heading over to jump the fence
seeking steekers. Summernationals (Mickey Thompson Mustangs, Snake/Mongoose, Garlits). CanAm (Donahue), Indy Cars (Andretti/Foyt), NASCAR (Pearson, Yarlbourogh, Petty).

Later Can Am, Rosberg sans bodywork broadslide around turn 6 on cool down, Little Al and Michael Andretti earning their stripes, Jim Crawford testing Frisbee flat from 7a all the way around to 6.

Indy cars (Mears/Little Al debut, Brabham AAR BLAT, Rahal very smooth), more NASCAR (Tim Richmond/Waltrip/Gurney's last ride), IMSA (Paul's/GTP), TransAm (Hobbs/Willy T.), IROC (World Champion Andretti talking to Russell mechanics looking for something to sign), Atlantic (Moreno), Super Vee (young Andretti/Unser).

Quite a bit of Russell races, POC/PCA lapping days, SCCA and a 6 Hour 911 GTU start myself.

Hello does anyone out there have any photos of the Bob Hagestad/Al Holbert Porsche 911 RSR from the 1975 IMSA race at Riverside.
Thanks

First pro race I ever went to was the 1972 Can-Am at Riverside. Here are a few photos shot with a Pocket Instamatic (remember those?).









Cheers,

What a great thread ... my only memories of the track are of watching the occasional coverage on Wide World of Sports, especially the IROC series.

Thanks for sharing all the pics and stories !

I was at the 87 race at Riverside (and went again in 88 if I remember correctly..). Thanks for posting, great days. I used to have a picture taken with me and Jochen Mass, I had one of Derek Bell also.

I lost all my programs

I think that year with the 935's on the cover was 1982.

Well, it looks as if all the photos I posted up to this point have gone missing. I suspect the 3rd party hosting site I used had had enough of me. No worries, I still have all those and many more, so here goes.....

The track and all the orange groves are gone all the way to Palm Springs. They built a shopping center in its place.

Riverside was a racing town and the local businesses reflected that.

I spent time at March and Norton thru the 70's and 80's and watched it get tore up. We used to fly our RC airplanes there when they graded and readied it for the buildings.

Those were the days

I have this program as a souvenir from the event. Living in San Diego and going to college at the time, Riverside was an easy and frequent trip.
