Limited edition of 600 copies numbered and signed. This is the third volume in a series of three exploring the history of sports car racing in the Southern United States. With the exception of the Sebring 12 Hours, the meets were largely ignored by the national press, and no comprehensive research material is available for the numerous events organized between Texas and Florida. Yet, the South offers a rich road racing history, often fueled by wealthy oilmen from Texas and Oklahoma. Many of the events were hosted on airport courses where late-model Ferraris, Maseratis, Jaguars, Listers, Porsches, OSCAs and Climax-engined cars such as Lotus, Cooper and Elva did battle with American V8-powered vehicles, such as Corvettes and home-built Specials. This book, the final one in a series of three, offers a race-by-race account of all 1961 and 1962 events in the South, from Novice Races to the concluding Feature competitions.
