Wow, great pic Racer X.

 

Thank you.

 

I scanned that image about 15 years ago, but can't remember is the picture I scanned a slide, or a print. Either way, the colors have shifted a bit, and there is lint and a smudge on it.

 

My photo processing skills have improved quite a bit since then, and I need to find the slide, and copy it using a digital camera and a slide/negative copier, and then clean it up in Photoshop.

 

Cheers,

Racer

Looks like Paul Newman is popular here. A photo I shot at Portland International Raceway in 1985 or 1986 (been so long I don't remember),, as he was entering turn 9. Scanned from a (possibly Ektachrome) slide.

So I really wasn't happy with the condition of the scan I posted, so I spent a few minutes in Photoshop fixing it up. How does it look now?

Better.

A rule of thumb regarding driver ID: blue on bottom - Paul, blue on top - Bob (who by the time this photo was taken had stopped racing)

I think so. Picture by Paul Woodbury and he lives close. I'll ask him...

It would be fitting, since today is the running of that race. In fact it is on right now. I was surprised to see the television coverage is nearly flag to flag, but disappointed that Fox is the network covering it.

Fox butchers racing coverage.

Yes, Paul says Sebring. I got lucky on today being race day though. I'm all the way across the country!

And Cadillac wins for the second time this year, in the new Cadillac prototype. Young Ricky Taylor and company came from sixth on the grid to win the classic 12 hour endurance race. Two races, two wins.

Will they be on top at the end of the season?

Stay tuned.
