Even MORE PPIHC Photos
My good friends over at ARTEMIS IMAGES invited me to post some more awesome photos. They also said they have put up almost 3000 images from this years race and practices and are in the process of getting the database updated with specific information on each car, bike and driver. And they also said, "We look forward to seeing more vintage racers next year." THANKS AGAIN ARTEMIS IMAGES! In case any of you haven't checked out their prices, I don't recall seeing such a great bargain.
Driver of the #145 1949 Cadillac Sedanette known as “Blena Azul” or blue whale, John Daniels, gets a kiss from his wife(?) after completing his rookie run in the newly inaugurated Vintage class at the Hill Climb. John and co-driver Bob Youngdahl, finished 6th in class with a time of 15:21.600. This Cady was designed by Carl Wells and was ‘rebuilt’ from the ground up for racing in Mexico. Competing in the La Carrera Panamericana three times so far reaching a top speed of almost 170mph. This image is part of the Anna Chevarria photographic collection.
