Does anyone have any information on Colonel(I think) Bob Kuhn who raced a Siata 208S and later an Abarth 207 in the eastern US in the mid 1950s?
The Abarth he raced is sitting a couple of feet from me as I type this and a friend owns (we think) his old Siata.
I have pics of him at Elkhart Lake and at Lawrenceville, IL in 1955.
Any info or pics, especially of the Siata, would be helpful.
Thanks in advance,
Anton

Lt-Col, IIRC
His most successful season was 1957, with an AC-Bristol.
Also raced a Maserati 200S, in 1958
Can't add much else, sorry

Bob Kuhn raced a Team Roosevelt Abarth at Sebring in 1959. Co-driver Jim Jeffords claims to have done most of the driving in that event. As David mentioned, Kuhn was a regular in the SCCA circuit with an AC Bristol.
