In 20414 I had the opportunity to photograph two exciting vintage sports car race weekends and help out on the crew of Mike Unger's Datsun 2000. This Datsun 2000 is the genuine 1967 Bob Sharp race car that had been campaigned for decades by its former owner, Dick Tillinger. In 2013 at the annual SVRA event at Watkins Glen International, Datsun was the featured marque and Bob Sharp was the guest of honor. Of all the historic Datsuns that were at the race weekend, Bob seemed most excited to see this car in its original livery.
This photo was taken at the 2014 Jefferson 500 in May, 2014 at Summit Point Raceway in Summit Point, West Virginia. The shot was from the viewing stand near the apex of turn 10, a fast right hand turn that if driven properly enables the driver to reach maximum speed on the long straight-away that lies ahead.
The photos below show other racers from what was a superb race weekend.
