Sad,

Rest in Peace mr. Hillin


Little detail to remember for Williams fanatics: Hillin was the man who fielded CART/Indycar adopted derivatives of the in F1 so successful Williams FW07, driven by Al Unser Sr. These cars were however nowhere near as a success as the f1 versions they were derived off. Most impressive result was most likely the 6th place of Sheldon Kinser in the '81 500 driving the year old car.

The Longhorn IndyCar may not have been a success , but I seem to remember a Longhorn based Williams FW07 driven by Michael Lyons won the 2017 FIA Masters Formula One championship ( for normally aspirated Formula One cars 1966 - 1985 ) .

Pretty much true, Henri, although the Longhorn did show impressive pace at times in its 1980 debut season, according the the CART/PPG Yearbook of that year coming after the team got its articulated sliding skirt system worked out. Al Sr. took pole positions at Mid-Ohio and Watkins Glen (but crashed on the first lap of a very wet track in the former and blew up in the latter). Best performance might've been the Bettenhausen 200 at the Milwaukee Mile: qualified second, very close to Rutherford's dominant Yellow Sub, and had JR completely covered in the race until the left front came off as Al headed into Turn 3 late in the race. I was in the Turn 3-4 infield that day and saw the wheel rolling/bouncing ahead of the Longhorn as it helplessly slid up toward the wall. Seemed like a lot of in-race problems and glitches new/midpack teams experience.

 

Oh, and RIP, Mr. Hillin. I always appreciated the effort in USAC/CART; wish I could've seen Jan Opperman or Bubby Jones wheeling your sprint and Champ Dirt cars.

Thanks, racinggeek - I seemed to recall much more impressive appearances than that 6th place of Kinser, but couldn't find the time to check. Also, thanks for mentioning Bubby Jones and Jan Opperman - let's not forget that it was one of Hillin's cars Opp was driving when he had that devastating crash in 1976.

Got to admit I only looked into the Indy results of the team as for the other CART results, thanks for pointing them out fellows...

Thanks, gentlemen. Although, I don't recall anything that impressive after the '80 season other than what's already been pointed out.

 

Regarding Opperman, Robin Miller's remembrance of Hillin seems to imply Hillin was aiming to take Opp to champ cars in a bigger way than Hillin had done to the point when Opp was injured. He and Bubby won quite a bit in the Longhorn dirt cars for a couple of years.

^ Sad news

 

Not news in the literal sense as he passed away five years ago (dutifully recorded in this thread - as has been Ed Abate's passing).

Catching up on a few notable passings from the Western U.S. oval track scene:

 

John Brazil86, died May 24 in his hometown of Manteca, California. Brazil raced from the 1950s until 1994, starting with hardtop, moving on to super modifieds. He was 4-time super modified track champion at Stockton 99 Speedway. Late in his career, he turned to stock cars, winning the pole position for the NASCAR Southwest Tour race at his home track, Stockton 99 Speedway, at age 57.

 

Gary Howard, 68, raced sprint cars from the early 1970s through 1980s. He had 7 career CRA sprint car wins and finished 4th in points in 1975. Howard also did some USAC racing and some midget racing. He was the son of Glenn Howard, and is sometimes listed as Gary G. Howard to differentiate him from other drivers named Gary Howard. No details on date of death due to the circumstances and no date of birth is listed (so that's down to you Reinhard).

 

And, sadly, one that slipped by without notice last year...

 

Danny Letner passed away March 30, 2018 at age 90. Racing out of Downey, California, Letner was 1955 NASCAR Pacific Coast Late Model champion. While primarily a west coast racer, Letner did compete at Darlington, on the sand at Daytona Beach, Langhorne and Richmond. He won a NASCAR convertible race at Langhorne in 1956, and had 8 wins in NASCAR's Western series. In his 50s/early 60s, Letner joined his son in racing a Trophy Truck in major off-road races, winning the 1989 Parker 400 at age 61.

Many thanks, Jim.

Gary Howard’s birth date is no secret. It even appeared in this thread (on page 3).
According to this report he was last seen alive on March 7 and found dead in a creek on March 26.

You're welcome. The remark was in reference to the number of times you have asked for more than what I list, thinking I had more available  :D

 

Yes, I saw that article. I didn't link to it because there is a decided lack of information on his racing career. The circumstances described in the article were the circumstances I referred to. Cases like Henry Pens, Bob Pronger and Mario Rossi, where determining an actual date is difficult to impossible.

Probably less interest in these here than anywhere, but a few notable passings from the U.S. and Western stock car world (how is it any different than a U.S. version of touring cars? )

 

Jim Reed died June 29, 2019. Racing out of Peekskill, New York, Reed is credited with 7 career wins in NASCAR's top series. All 7 came in 1958 and 1959, with his 1959 Southern 500 win a career highlight. Reed also competed in other NASCAR series, winning five straight championships in NASCAR's Short Track division, competing in the convertible division and making two starts in the speedway division, NASCAR's short-lived attempt at an open wheel Championship-style series. 

 

One of the top short track stock car racers in Southern California in the 1960s and 1970s, "Wild" Bill Foster died May 18, 2019. 1969 Pacific Racing Association champion, Foster made a few starts in NASCAR's Western series, but was best known at Saugus Speedway, where his low slung Plymouth convertible was a familiar sight up front. Foster also competed in NASCAR late model sportsman events at Ontario Motor Speedway and Riverside International Raceway.

 

Conny Burdett died June 26, 2019. Another Southern California stock car racer in the 1960s and 1970s, racing out of then rural Castaic earned him the nickname "The Castaic Cowboy." Like Foster, Burdett did a lot of racing at Saugus Speedway, but also raced on the So Cal NASCAR circuit and also competed in NASCAR late model sportsman races at Riverside International Raceway.

 

Larry "Pappy" Pryor died May 19, 2019. Pryor didn't begin racing until he was 30 years old, but went on to race for 37 years. Based in Yakima, Washington, Pryor made 58 starts in NASCAR's Westen series between 1977 and 1998, with his first start coming at age 46.

 

Note, here are a couple of great examples of problems at websites. Over at racingreference.com, they have made an utter hash of it, confusing the two different drivers named Bill Foster (they weren't separated until I pointed it out). The date of birth for North Carolinian Bill Foster is actually that of California's Bill Foster. CA Bill Foster is listed as driving a few 1960s NASCAR PCLM races for car owner Rudy Hoerr, who owned the car driver by Canadian BillFoster on the USAC stock car circuit in the 1960s.

 

For some reason, sites seem to get utterly baffled by multiple drivers with the same common name, usually combining them, even if there are decades between their races! And woe to all if their careers overlapped, or came close to overlapping!

 

On the other hand, racingreference.com has separated out Larry and "Pappy" Pryor as two different drivers! They were one in the same. My head hurts.

Didn't Jim Reed go drag racing later?

Or was that another Jim Reed?

Computer Age. Data bases cannot differentiate between drivers with same names, that necessitates knowledge of the subject matter. Which is in short supply with those maintaining those data bases. They just show off with tons of "info", or should I say data. And the users of those website data bases are no better, they just want "statistics" - "Hey, this driver won 92 % of all his races" - No, sucker, this just happens to be a data base of race winners, with a couple of retirements thrown in for good measure. When feeling low, I sometimes browse a few driver data bases to cheer me up - always good for a hearty laugh! :D


Come to think of it, researching drivers with the same name is the real "fun" - just recently, I was reminded again of the two Bill Bakers who ran Midgets on the AAA circuit late forties, early fifties. One was from California, the other from New York, so not too complicated from the outset, but during the summer while racing the Mississippi Valley/Ohio circuit they took up summer camp, one in Chicago and the other one in Lydick near South Bend (Indiana), fifty miles to the east. Even the AAA got confused over this! :lol:

Different Jim Reed. I left out that this Jim Reed was a successful "Yankee" in NASCAR, hailing from Peekskill, New York.

I seem to recall you getting caught out using databases early on as well, Michael   ;)  It's not about these people just wanting "statistics", as Don likes to rail about  :)  I know that some of the folks that run these sites are conscientious about getting the info correct, but simply don't possess the knowledge to sort them out. That's our job. The job is made tougher by bozos who have no clue, yet are insistent about their (mis)info.

 

One "anonymous" contributor at Racing Reference has added many dates of birth and death for West Coast drivers that are ridiculously far off. According to him, every driver seems to have been aged from late 40s to early 60s when they raced! In a couple of cases, I think he's found the dates of the fathers of the drivers in question and submitted them.

I still do! There's no way I can handle all that stuff by memory, in fact I spend a lot of time every now and then to weed out data base mistakes. Just now I came about a race which one report said was won by Joe Johnson, and the other report said Jake Johnson. I thought that it was one and the same driver, with the papers muddling up the first name, but here I find an entry list with both names on! Sh*t! :evil:

Well-liked Swiss photographer Jimmy Froidevaux passed away unexpectedly yesterday (Friday, 26 July) in his retirement home in Thailand. He was 74 years old.
He is reminisced by his long-time writing companion Peter Wyss and fellow snapper Daniel Reinhard.
He shared many of his photos via Facebook. Some of them can also be seen here.
For those who understand “Schwyzerdütsch”

Sadly, Jean-Luc Thérier, one of the best rally drivers ever, died today with just 73 years old. From what I read, he wasn't well for some months and passed away this morning. Another legend left us

Sad to hear that Jean-Luc Thérier have passed away. A driver with a great spirit which showed well in his driving style. Sadly underrated, but not among his peers.

I hate to link to Facebook but Ari Vatanen paid a great tribute to him some years ago. https://es-la.facebo...52171331499512/

 

An obituary in a French motorblog describes him quite well. https://www.leblogau...-est-parti.html

I've received the following from Csaba Varga who appears to be unable to get onto the forum;

 

As some permission is missing, I still not able to write into the forum directly, sadly, on 24 July 2019 Freddy Sowrey also passed away at age 96:
For example he competed the the Cornwall M. R. C. GP in 1955 in Davidstow.
 
 
 
Best regards,
Csaba

I'm sorry to hear that. Thanks Terry.  Doug was not much more than a kid--a very fast kid--when he came on the Caversham scene in that lightweight Mini.

I just learned that Roger Andreason passed away in May. While searching for more info I also learned that his (ex-?)wife Judy Andreason resp. Judy Day died two years ago. Has anyone the exact date of her passing?
