A recent meeting at the track with Bruggenthies, Michael Argetsinger, Paul Powell, and Rick Dresang saw agreement reached for the event. Rick Dresang, who owns the 1973 Eagle Indy car of Donohue, also spoke to the group and said that he has already received commitments for a dozen cars that were driven by Donohue to be displayed. Among the cars are three of the five Penske Camaros (real ones, not the dozens of fakes that are seen at most US events!), and two Porsche 917 turbo Spyders. More are to announced as they commit. Further, several team members, family members, and such will be present. George Follmer has indicated his intentions to be in attendance.
Michael Argetsinger, author of the acclaimed Mark Donohue book released earlier this year, is pleased to announce that the photo biography of Mark Donohue that is to be the companion book to his earlier book has received the go-ahead from David Bull Publishing. Argetsinger accumulated some 4,250 photos in preparation for his Donohue book, and 40 selected shots were in that book. Michael will now cull through the remaining 4200 and select a few hundred pictures which will form the core of this second book. Michael will write a short narrative to connect the photos and to set the scene, while the pictures themselves will tell the story with detailed captions. It should be an excellent compliment to the largely text Donohue Biography previously written by Argetsinger.
This photo history of Mark Donohue will be rolled out by David Bull Publishing and Michael Argetsinger at this July, 2010, Mark Donohue celebration at Road America.
More details will be posted as they become available.
