Will bring back memories for me. I was in England in 1976 and 1977 in the USAF and I took my first racing photos at Silverstone. I went every chance I got while there.

What an exciting and sometimes tragic era of F1 racing. The speed of the cars was far outpacing the safety standard of the tracks. Do you have any of your F1 pics from that time online anywere? I'd love to see them.

I think that it's about time a dirt track racing video be made. Set it in the early 90's centered around the WoO. In a more perfect world it should be produced around the PA Posse from the early 90's.

I always thought a Movie about the life of Jan Opperman would be good, but we know it wouldn't have a happy ending.

I would watch a movie on Opperman the first minute I could. Of all the drivers before I started going to the races, which was 1981, he's the guy that has fascinated me more than anyone. Would love to see some good footage of his life altogether, but especially the rivalry he had with Weld.

Would be really neat to see Wolfgang's book turned into a movie.
