Isn’t this a most atmospheric shot? Shown here is Dick Hayward’s Siata 208 Spider (BS526) that was entered in race 4, a 26-lapper for production cars over 1500cc, for George Dillaway.
The Siata didn’t make it to the finish as the fuel pump was sucking air. Dick Hayward was elected as one of the new members to the board of directors to the CSCC for 1957.
Weekend Heroes 2 is about sports car drivers, spectators and enthusiasts that made the scene in California in the 1950’s. The fascinating books are not merely nostalgia ; those early years from 1950-1957 truly were magical – filled with special cars and special people , who have genuinely become our heroes. The three books are the most people focused sports car racing books ever. Photos never seen before and never published before. Almost six hundred pix in full color and over three hundred in black and white. Tony’s books are all extraordinary and have never disappointed anyone. They are true masterpieces and levels above other period racing books.
