Video now up. Enjoy.
Good job, as usual!
Great interview Ace!
Thank you. Excellent.
I listened to it on podcast and watched the video.
Was there any joke about Goodwood? (“My wife said that to me this morning”)
I missed it.
What a great way to die. Heart attack driving a classic racer on the track.
Could have been that Adam was just tossing out a comment the ‘If you had a ride at Goodwood…’, and Morton said that what an odd thing to say since he just got a call to drive a Scarab car at Goodwood. OR that Donny was out on the track with a few other folks as a fellow doing a victory burn out in a Cobra nearly wiped him out. Good times! I might actually have to watch it again 🙂
Great interview with some great stuff I’ve never heard from Pete before. John is such a humble unassuming guy… I wonder though – that’s the same t-shirt he wore to dinner Saturday night in Coronado. Was Shelby so damn cheap that John can only afford one t-shirt????
PS – Nice drive at Coronado, except when you took Billy Pritchard out after he passed you. 🙂
Pete and John are both really nice guys, they are always have some interesting stories to tell as well. And was Shelby too cheap… You can answer that yourself!
BTW I have the In-car-cam from the race (Coronado 9/26-9/27) and it seems that Bill cliped the baracade first, then looks like it got him the second time around ;). Me and the Weez will have the video going as soon as we get some sleep and recover from the weekend. It’s good stuff!
