    i have an odd question and mabey you guys can help...

    i know for sure that there was an open wheel race in San Antonio in the mid 80's, i think some time past 86' but do not know. I know it was not F1 but my parents say the cars looked like F1(not much help there) but my parents went and it was the big social event of the year, but nobody knew what was going on they said...

    anyways any info on this event would be helpful

    what i know so far

    organized by Bev Coriner(Sp?)
    all street track in downtown SA
    mid 80's for sure

    also some pics too if anybody can find some....

    and excatlly what the hell was this race!!! everyone i talk to rembers it, but has no clue as to what kind of cars or who even raced in it... this is getting very frustrating

    thanks

    The site isn't very active, but if you give your post time, I bet you could get an anwer from the forums at www.sowdivscca.org. If there was a race in Texas the past 50 years, then someone at that site would know about it and was probably there.

    You can also get info there or at www.scca.org about Rally stuff. They do the Road Rally stuff, Rally Cross, and the full blown Rally Racing.

    I do autocross and club racing.

    I saw an IMSA race in the streets of San Antonio in 1989 (or was it 1988). The day before, they raced Formula Mazda cars on the same course.

    IMSA grew out of the ashes of CanAm and ran for quite a few years during the heydays of real ground effects. The race I saw had 2 of the Nissan GTPs that used amonia instead of water for engine cooling. Either Little Al or Michael Antretti was driving though not winning on that day.
