I was an active motorsports photographer back during the 1980s and early 1990s. Then life got in the way and I stopped going to the races. Most of the races I attended were SCCA club races. I lived in Southern California at the time and wrote for California Sports Car, Cal Club's monthly publication. (Cal Club was the name of the SCCA's Southern California region) When I wasn't covering races, I was taking pics of them. I got to attend a few pro races back in those days and, as a reporter, I pretty much had free rein of the tracks.
Back in those days I was mostly a Canon FD shooter. I had a couple of F-1s and a good selection of FD glass. I shot mostly Kodachrome 64 and Fujichrome 100. I did some freelance work, but not a lot. Here are a few shots from the big IMSA race that weekend. All slides are Fujichrome 100.
