I can't ID the driver, or track!
I think it may be either Bob Thorpe in CSX2162 or Ron West in CSX2011 ?

The hat is KILLER !

Can our cobra experts lend their expertise?

CSX2162 at W Palm Beach; 5-16-65 or 2/26/66,  Courtland AL 7/3/65 or 7/2/66 ( my leading theory )
CSX2011 at Green Valley 6/4/67 I don't think this is GV

Thank you

Coulda been a Shelby owner many times in the 80's/90's. Was always so close but yet, so far away for me......

Another photo I'd like to confirm location & car

It appears to be a cutback door USRRC car, in what I think is the esses at Elkhart Lk.,
 is that an inspection sticker inboard of RH headlamp?  RA ??

My leading theory is CSX2557, Richard Roe, Road America June Sprints, SCCA National June 18 1966
and how many of these cars had the dual side pipe configuration?
my "new" registry is at home so I can't look it up!

what say our Cobra experts ???

  Leather shoes dissipated heat better then anything at that time frame, burning hot floor boards had to be dealt with and that was the fix. Race shoes didn't come around for a few years. :-[

Snakes at Riverside 1965 ! why the X on the second #98 in the distance ?
May be that there can't be two "same number" cars. 
When I raced circle track back in the 90's, no duplicates of same number cars in the same class.

Now, the other cobra with X may be in another class?

Cool photo I found of the Bondurant/Schlesser Daytona at Reims 1965, finished third overall, and first in GT. It sure was flat there ! you could see the cars coming for a long way !

What is the yellow square with the star on the left rear ?

Any ideas on the # on this '66 at the Course de Cote du col Bayard hill climb,  France I think ? in '69.

Wolfgang on ponysite.de probably has the answer   ;)

Nice photo.

Most likely France.   Course du cote = Hill Climb

Ken Miles racing down in OZ, 1965.

I was probably there that day, we went to all the big races at Lakeside, i would have been 7yo.
