Dothan, Alabama, October 1959. Partially hidden by E.D. Martin's Birdcage Maserati is Tommy Friedman's dark colored, finless D-type.
Tommy Friedman ran his first race at Auburn in May 1959, winning the novice race in a Corvette. After a few additional Corvette appearances he entered the September 1959 Auburn event in a Jaguar D-type, running the same car at Dothan in October 1959. In both cases he retired with engine trouble.
By 1960 he seems to have sold the D-type, since he raced a Lotus 11. Does anybody know what chassis number the Friedman D-type had?

Hi, Jerry,


I hadn't heard of the car here, but I know someone who will probably know.  I'll let you (and Willem) know.
