JANUARY 2009  

 

1968 - Brewers Datsun

1968 - Brewers Datsun, Oklahoma -  Bert Jones (1500) and Doc Foerster (2000) racing at the Continental Divide Raceway.

Although Doc Foerster was to continue campaigning his Datsun 2000 into the 1970s, 1968 was the last season that he campaigned the roadster for Brewers Datsun before the bank foreclosed on Ray Brewer's car sales business. Ironically, 1968 was another successful year for Ray on the track, and the team took two cars to the American Road Race of Champions (ARRC) for the third year running. For 1968, Doc qualified the team's Solex 2000, while Bert Jones campaigned a battered 1500 to that year's ARRC, held at Riverside. At the ARRC, Bert finished a creditable 10th in the GP race, while Doc could only manage 7 laps in C Production before mechanical failure, a sad end for a hard-working low budget team.  


December 2008 - 1968 - Tulip Rally - Lusenius and Lehto on their way to 3rd overall.
