was given a boat he didn’t need, so he made a car. Only a gearhead would do such a preposterous thing

there is a paddle down by the running board,

a piece of a busted Chevy crank for an anchor

an old life vest for use as a seat cushion

John Fitch, far more than just a race car driver, and more than a racing team director. Not only did he date JFK’s sister, he was manager of Lime Rock, inventor of the sand barrel safety barrier saving over 17,000 lives, and a WW2 fighter pilot in the P51 Mustang

To think of him only on terms of a Gran Prix race car driver is to miss the majority of his astonishing life.

But learn from that. To think of most people in terms of just one thing, is to miss the big picture of their lives, and odds are you’ll have missed the better parts.

Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1917. He was a descendent of the inventor of the steamboat, John Fitch. Fitch’s stepfather was an executive with the Stutz Motor Company, which introduced him to cars and racing at an early age.

When WW2 broke out, he volunteered in spring of 1941, for the United States Army Air Corps. His service took him to North Africa, where he flew the A-20 Havoc and then on to England. By 1944, Captain Fitch was a P-51 Mustang pilot with the Fourth Fighter Group on bomber escort missions, and became one of the Americans to shoot down a German Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter.

When Fitch returned to the U.S., he was among many young pilots who’d developed the need for speed during the conflict. He became part of the Palm Springs set, hanging out with Joe Kennedy’s sons including Jack and Bobby, and dating his daughter. But he was increasingly interested in racing and by the 1950s had started to devote more and more time to the sport.

Fitch opened an MG car dealership and also began racing at

team McLeish Bros

Just 3 cool shots from the Burnout catagory, and he also has Bonneville, a dragstrip, Race of Gentlemen, and Speedweek Australia… so, plan on looking around at the other things he’s focused on!

What the unbelieveable hell, Tonya Harding has a Bonneville speed record.

February 26th, 2017 by admin

On August 12, 2010, Harding set a new land speed record for a vintage gas coupe with a speed of 97.177 mph driving a 1931 Ford Model A, named Lickity-Split, on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

On Monday, Tonya did a qualifying run, of 79.1 mph. On Tuesday, she did a second run, at 83.618 mph, establishing a record of 81.37 mph, from the two runs. She is the first person to drive a 1931 vintage gas coup on the Salt Flats, to establish a land speed record. Also, this is the first time that a vintage gas coup has competed at a SCTA-BNI sanctioned event.
