Just a little thing, really. After reading the page about my endurance racing experience, Mush Emmons — my co-rider in the 1975 Sears Point Three-Hour — put his memory of that race in a Facebook reply. I took the liberty of adding it to the end of my page in this blog. Go to page “My Endurance Racing Experience” and scroll down to see the neat photo and Mush’s memories of the race.
This week I write about my experiences in club-level endurance road races. In the late 1970s I took part in five endurance races with mixed results. See the page titled “WP. My Endurance Racing Expeience.”
There was no story this week. I started writing one, a good one, and when I got to about 500 words I thought this sounds too familiar. I looked at the early stories and found that I had already done that one. Whoa.
There are now over 60 stories in this blog, in simple chronological order, most recent first. There’s no organization — it’s just a long list. It needed some kind of index, so I made one instead of writing a story. Of course it took much longer than I expected.
I’ve named the index page “An Index” so it will stay at the top of the page list, while the most recently added page will be listed just below it. Each new page will result in a new entry in the index. Hopefully this will help people find stories they’re interested in, and will keep me from putting in a story that’s already there. Take a look at it — the first couple of paragraphs explain how to use it. You may find a good story that you haven’t noticed before.
I’ve added a trio of omissions to the page “Fathers and Sons.” These three sets, Kenny Roberts and Sons, Reg and Jason Pridmore, and John and Chris Ulrich, were originally in my list of father and son racers but somehow got left out of the final copy. Sorry about the omissions.
June 1st, 2014. A new page. This one is about the 1977 Ontario 6-hour endurance race, when it didn’t rain. The page title is “The Ducati Sport Goes Endurance Racing.”
On Jan. 2nd, 2014, I added a page with the story of the 1978 Ontario 6-Hour Endurance Race. It was notable because it rained for the first five of the six hours. Look for the page “The Wet Ontario 6-Hour.”
