You posted in May that your book Meister Brausers, Harry Heuer's Championship Racing Team would be rolled out at the Road America Historic Race Weekend and that three surviving drivers would be present. Just wondering if you have any photos. updates of how that launch went. If so many of us here would be greatly interested.
Thanks for the interest. The book was launched at a banquet in Elkhart Lake on Thursday evening. On display in front of the banquet hall were two special cars. One was a real, authentic Scarab, chassis three, brought all the way up from the Revs Institute in Florida for the occasion. The other was a Chaparral 1, chassis two, courtesy of owner Tom Hollfelder. Both were Meister Brauser team cars. Before the banquet we had an autograph session and book signing. The three surviving Meister Brauser drivers, Augie Pabst, Bill Wuesthoff, and Don Devine participated. We were able to move a large number of books.
After dinner, the program was an illlustrated talk about the Team. I discussed its history, and then conducted a round robin discussion with Pabst, Wuesthoff, and Devine.
We were fortunate to have three of Harry Heuer's children fly in from all over the country. They were present and added to the occasion.
On Friday through Sunday we had a tent in the paddock where we had the Scarab and Chaparral on display. We also had banners and large posters erected. Books were on sale all weekend, and we had autograph sessions with the drivers. Unfortunately, I came down with bronchitis and laryngitis Friday afternoon and had to return home. Thus I missed the last two days and cannot tell you anything other than what I was told, and that is that it went well both days.
