Road Racing: Drivers of the 60′s and 70′s is a collection of vintage photographs and profiles of auto racing’s greatest road racing drivers during the 1960′s and 1970′s. Beginning with her first visit to Riverside International Raceway in 1966, Linda would go on to attend dozens of auto racing events. Over the next ten year period pictures were gathered of such legendary racers like Mario Andretti, Graham Hill, Bruce McLaren, Helmut Marko, George Follmer, Mark Donohue and many more, all of whom are featured in the book. In addition to candid photos of the drivers, the book features many action racing shots from the great road racing series of the time. The Sport’s Car Club of America’s Can Am, Trans Am and Formula 5000 series are the focus of the book.
