We know you have been waiting patiently for the May/June issue and we can’t wait to get it into your hands. Subscriber copies should be landing in mailboxes soon so be on the look out. The cover and 7-page Salon features Bobby Unser’s 1981 Penske PC9B, the actual winning car of the ’81 Indianapolis 500.
We also dive into Dan Gurney’s Eagle “Boundary Layer Adhesion Technology” Indy cars of the early 1980s, which established a groundbreaking alternative to the growing movement toward ground effects in racing, and reflected the unique spirit of All American Racers.
We also look back on the career of Sir Stirling Moss, who racing lost on Easter Sunday, our remembrance of a remarkable man and racer.
Remember “Million Dollar Bill”? Yes, Bill Elliott tells us about his favorite race, the 1985 Darlington 500 when he won that Winston million-dollar prize for winning three of the NASCAR’s four “Crown Jewel” contests that season.
We cover events that got in under the pandemic wire — the Amelia Island Concours, vintage drag racing’s March Meet, HMSA’s Laguna Seca and the Phillip Island Classic in Australia.
Our staff are spread out, staying safe and working from home offices and we hope our readers are staying healthy as well. We’re all in this together, and are excited about races getting the green flag, with events and auctions going live once again. We remain cautiously optimistic about the near future of the sport.
And thank you for your patience in waiting for the May/June issue of Vintage Motorsport!!
