test drive the big rotary Mazda
This is the newest rotary engine Mazda. Big, roomy and spirited. Its 120 horsepower engine is the revolutionary rotary engine the experts from Car & Driver, Road & Track, Motor Trend and Road Test magazines are raving about.
It has no rods, cams or valves. One-third the parts of a conventional engine. This means longer life, lower maintenance.
Somebody cared when they built this one. The Mazda RX-2. You may never own a conventional car again.

This is a significant week for Portland. We now have a completely redesigned and reconstructed facility for drag racing and road racing. This facility is fine enough to make our city potentially one of the auto racing centers of the entire United States.
This was a massive program, done in a minimum of time. It was possible because of the cooperation between the Rose Festival organization and the city government.
This office has always been enthusiastic about developing a first-quality auto racing program. It is personally gratifying to me to see this program advanced so far in a single season.
I believe there is a larger lesson for us all. Our key to improvement lies in working together for our common objectives. Let us air out honest differences of opinion as a means to mutual understanding. Then, when we agree on goals, let us profit by closing ranks and working together.

WELCOME RACE FANS!
It is with great pleasure that the Rose Festival salutes the formal opening of this completely rebuilt auto racing facility.
It was a privilege for us to have secured financing for these improvements on the city's plant We believe auto racing will continue to grow in popular appeal and we can soon lean support to further improvements.
The Festival's purpose remains the same. It is designed to let people have fun. Our improved auto racing track is one gratifying sign of our progress in that direction.
This new facility is symbolic, we believe, of the spirit of change in the Rose Festival. The Festival, like all our institutions, must move with the times. We are doing so,
Webb Harrington, President Portland Rose Festival Assn.
ROAD RACING IS
Undeniably, motor racing is dangerous. Despite this, racing as you will see it this week end has an enviable safety record. A good portion of this is due to the natural good sense of the American public. We'll need their help again this week end.
Just because you were fleet afoot as a child, don't think you can outrun one of these short fused bombs traveling better than 100 mph. There's not anyone who can. So take the following rules to heart, they are designed for your safety.
IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT, STAY PUT. Chances are you aren't going to be able to do anything but confuse an already bad situation, and make things even more difficult for everyone concerned.
STAY AWAY FROM THE HAY BALES. They were put there because experts felt that was where a car going wild would hit. Don't try to prove the experts wrong the hard way.
KEEP ALL PETS ON LEASHES. Or, better still, leave them behind. They present a constant hazard and usually don't give a hang about sports car racing anyhow.
KEEP CHILDREN UNDER CONSTANT SUPERVISION. Youngsters can slip away and out onto the track, ruining the weekend's pleasure for everyone and bringing a lifetime of remorse to a loving but careless parent.
DON'T TRY TO CROSS THE TRACK. At least, you are exposing yourself to arrest. And you may be tempting a quick and painful and final end to your day's spectating. This is a point that will be stressed this week end.
DON'T SCATTER REFUSE AROUND THE AREA. The wind may blow it onto the course, momentarily blinding one of the competitors.
PLEASE COMPLY WITH ALL INSTRUCTIONS FROM OFFICIALS. They have a reason for their requests and their reasons are based on experience. Motor racing is dangerous.

REGIONAL EXECUTIVE: Michael Parker
Oregon Region, Sports Car Club of America, is proud to again associate with the Portland Rose Festival Association in presenting the 1971 Rose Cup Road Races. This marks the first racing event conducted on the newly designed and constructed road circuit.
The points earned by drivers at this weekend's events count toward qualifying for the SCCA National Championships held in November at Road Atlanta in Georgia.
You will be watching several national champions, some of them local, competing in today's races. These champions have earned their titles in competition against the best drivers in Ameria.
The popularity of the Rose Cup Races draws top competitors from all over the western United States.
New spectator areas at the western end of the circuit now afford a chance to view the action on the challenging back section of turns 1 through 5.
Oregon Region, SCCA, offers its sincere thanks to the Portland Rose Festival Association, Mayor Terry Shrunk, and Superintendent of Parks Harry Buckley, who made this facility possible.
This year's cars will be faster, the circuit more challenging, and we hope all this adds to^your excitement and enjoyment.

The 1971 Rose Cup Races, an official Festival event sponsored by the Portland Rose Festival Association, consist of a full two-day program as a part of the Sports Car Club of America's National Championship series. This is the second such event in the SCCA's North Pacific Division during 1971. Another is scheduled for September 11-12 at this same circuit. In all, a total of six such National Championship programs will be presented throughout NORPACDIV, which includes Northern California, Oregon and Washington.
In the National series, drivers earn points (as well as manufacturers' prize money) toward qualifying for the American Road Race of Champions, the final National Championship event held annually during Thanksgiving week at Road Atlanta near Gainsville, Georgia.
Although the season is still young, competition is fierce, as only the top three in each class from each of the seven SCCA geographical divisions will receive firm invitations to Road Atlanta.
Oregon has had its share of National Champions. Some of them are here today, as well as those from other Regions. Last year's Rose Cup feature race winner, Californian Milt Minter, is a two-time champion. Salem's Mike Eyerly, Jack Scoville of Corvallis, Bill Pendleton of Eugene, and Allan Lader of Gresham have all earned SCCA National Championships.
Many top-flight professionals, the superstars of the auto racing world, earned their spurs by first becoming National SCCA Champions before turning to the SCCA Canadian Challenge Cup series, the SCCA TransAm Sedan Championship, the SCCA Continental Championship for Formula cars, or other high-paying racing pursuits. Included in this category are Roger Penske, Mark Donahue, the late Jerry Titus, Milton Minter, Dr. Richard Thompson, Scooter Patrick, the late Walter Hansgen,Phil Hill, Ron Grable, and Briggs Cunningham.
SCCA National Championship racing, the "Olympics of Motor Sports," provides spectators a view of the stars of today and tomorrow.
Today's races will go far toward determining the 1971 National Champions. With only one event completed, the list of standings below is understandably brief. But keep your eyes on those listed. You'll hear from them again. Abbreviations: SF - San Francisco Region, NW - Northwest Region, ORE - Oregon Regions. * Indicates points total includes points earned out of driver's home division.

C AND D SPORTS RACING
C and D sports racing machines might be classified as the little brothers of the roaring Can Am racers. But don't be decieved—these cars are quick. Class C cars consist of primarily Lotus and Elva carriages, powered by BMC, Cosworth, and Lotus four cylinder engines, and are capable of speeds of 135 mph up.
The D sports racers tend to be rather conglomerate. They are a colorful lot, many hand-built bodies and chassis, powered by just about anything that falls in the engine size category of 850cc or less. The Fiat Abarth engine is one of the most popular power plants, though there will be some Saab, BMW and Imp power too.

B Sedans must be primarily stock bodies, stock powered passenger cars capable of seating four persons by the manufacturers intent. Under 1971 rules, these machines are classified on a horsepower to weight formula, and included are cars with engines ranging from 1438cc to 2500cc. Honors in the past have been split among the Ford Cortina, Porsche 911 (no longer classed as a sedan), Alfa Romeo GTA, and Volvo. This year, domestic makes such as the Ford Pinto and Chevrolet Vega are in B Sedan, so anything can happen.
A and B PRODUCTION
These are the big hot ones, the ones the kids drool over, the ones with the inspired marques — Sting-Ray and Cobra 427. They're noisy, showy and fast and if the machine doesn't perform too well on the track for some reason, it could end up at the local drag strip on Saturday night to thrill the little girls. This will be close. It's pure muscle against pure brawn. Nothing delicate about these cars, from A Production.
B Production, though a bit less powerful, are not to be trifled with. Again, it's Chevy against the Ford power of Shelby. The Corvette 327, for years the most exotic of American performers, are pitted against the hybrid Mustangs known as Shelby 350 GT's. Down to the wire, it should be nose to tail in this class.

A and B SPORTS RACING
A sports racing, often called "last season's Can Am" is bound to be the most popular class among spectators. Powered by big Ford and Chevy plants, these McLarens, Lolas and the like will be setting the fastest times on the track this weekend. And there is someone out there who hopes to beat the track record. This is the last step into the big time of professional road racing where the fun and trophies turns into hard cash and stardom. Remember the top finishers, they may be the honchos next year.
B sports racing will be comprised of smaller but extremely quick machines. The Lotus 23 is a popular chassis as well as the hand made jobs. Power must be derived from 2000 cc or less and the favored engine will be Porsche.
Porsche’s dominated this class for years before Datsun’s snappy 240Z came along, and last year at Atlanta the speedsters by Nissan made a 1-2-3 sweep of the runoffs. The Porsches are still plenty competitive, however, so look for a real battle in this one—and don’t overlook the Triumph TR6 as a dark horse.
Photo by Bob Ames
This class was mostly a runaway for Triumph TR4s and TR4As for years, with an occasional Alfa, MGB, or Porsche 911 sneaking in. Then came the Datsuns and for the past two years it’s been a Datsun 2000 show, with Oregon’s Jack Scoville winning the national title in his No. 61 car in 1969. An identical machine repeated for Datsun in 1970. This year, the Triumph GT6 plus may afford some real competition, having dropped down a class. Look for Lotus Super 7s, Elvas and Healeys in this class too, but not among the front runners.

FORMULA A, B, C
The formula cars have really come into their own with initiation of the SCCA Continental professional series for A and B machines. Most are now constructed by full-time manufacturers for American use, whereas initially the carriages were often "old" European formula cars no longer quick enough for the Grand Prix series.
Formula A is restricted to either 3000 cc unrestricted (overhead cam, etc.) or 5000 cc conventional pushrod engines (such as the small Ford and Chevy V8's). These cars are extremely fast, and noisier than the normal formula cars.
Formula B is similar except that the engine sizes must not exceed 1500 cc, mostly English Ford plants; and Formula C is just a step down in power, requiring a displacement of 1100 cc or less. Again, English Ford and BMC blocks are the front runners.
Photo by Bob Ames
These are the so-called "pony sedans," or "mini-stockers," such as Mustangs, Camaros, Javelins, Cougars, Road Runners, and Barracudas. They are identical with the SCCA Trans-American sedans and many run in this series as well as the Nationals. They must be powered by engines no larger than 305 cubic engines, and this year larger engines may be destroked to this size. Although there is not the commercialism in National Championship races that is found at the Trans-Ams, everyone is just as interested in whether Ford can beat Chevy, or if American Motors or Chrysler will pull off a coup.

This is the class for the sports car "purists." These are the cars that have been associated with sporty car racing for the past ten years, although they are quite a bit more sophisticated these days. They are, of course, the MGB's, Triumphs, the "bathtub" Porsches and Alfas of all sorts. This class finds the same kind of rivalry amongst the fans that is evoked from the stock car duels at Daytona, Charlotte, Darlington and Riverside's big 500. The big difference here is the lack of factory participation, and general hoop-la.
FORMULA VEE and SUPERVEE
Well, they aren't laughing at the Vee's anymore. This has proven to be one of the most competitive classes in amateur road racing today. No, they aren't too fast or too pretty or even very loud, and certainly not too expensive. But if it's real, wheel to wheel competition you want, this is it. It's all due to the fact that these little open-wheel racers are almost all identical in speed and handling potential. All being built on stock Volkswagen beetle components, no one will have more than a few horsepower of an advantage. So it's up to the drivers here.
A new class, Super Vee, has been created this year, permitting greater latitude in engine and frame construction. Only a few have appeared so far, but more are expected as the SCCA professional series for Super Vees gets under way.
A new class, Super Vee, was created last year, permitting greater latitude in engine preparation and frame construction. The SVs are now turning speeds to match Formula B cars, and a number of professional races for class have been scheduled for 1971. Only a few have appeared in NORPACDIV so far, but look for more soon.

C and D SEDANS
Here come the Mini's. Not necessarily the BMC kind but there are plenty of them too. C Sedans will be comprised mostly of the little Austin Mini Coopers, known affectionately as "noisy shoeboxes." To qualify for this class, your sedan must be powered by no more than 1300 cc, which narrows down the field a bit. But they still put on one heck of a show, dicing around like dizzy bees and taking corners on three wheels, or even on two if the weather is right.
The D Sedans are just a little slower since their power is limited to what one can squeeze out of 1000 cc. But they're quick and there is always the possibility that the D's will be right in there with the C's.
This one is just about a Datsun or Spitfire MK-III show with the exception of an occasional Healy, MGA, Volvo or Alpha. Of course, this limited menu of machinery constitutes close competition and wheelbumping in the corners. It won't be a run away for anybody as we see it.
G and H PRODUCTION
Like hornets out of the nest, the swarm of H Production Sprites stick together all the way around. This is where the littlest of the little bash it out for king of the hill. There will be duels for every position and distances are measured in car lengths rather than seconds as they scoot around the track.
Larger Sprites, Midgets and Spitfires dominate the G Production go-round. Here's some more close racing between the mighty-mites. Actually, the G and H Production cars are a lot faster than you may think. Look for some really spirited racing here.
Not since the iniation of the Formula Vee has there been so much interest over one particular racing classes,' and in all the formula classes, participation here is second only to that of Formula Vee.
The Formula Ford is classed as a single seat racing car, open wheel, using a 1600cc crossflow engine. Originally restricted to the powerplant from the English Ford Cortina, 1971 rules permit a choice of Cortina, Capri, or Pinto engines. Stock wheels must be used and chassis design is basically unrestricted, but engine preparation, as in Formula Vee, is highly restricted, with specified cams, pistons, rods, etc.
Some twenty-five manufacturers are now producing Formula Fords, including Titan, Alexis, Lotus, Caldwell, Merlyn, Winkelmann, and many others. Prices on these cars rance from S3,000 to 6,000, and speeds are comparable to that of the more exotic Formula C cars. Competition here will be very close.

Oregon Road Racing Started In 1905!
By Bob Mead
The 1955 Tillamook Road Race was billed as the "first road race to be held in Oregon" That event was staged by the Four Cylinder Sports Car Club of Oregon - now known to all as Cascade Sports Car Club. This event should have been tagged the "first ’sports car’ race to be held in Oregon" as road and automobile racing in Oregon dates as far back as 1905.
It was in 1905 that the first auto race was held in Oregon. A group of enthusiasts made the run form Portland to Gresham and back......and it
only took them a day. In that same year Dwight Huss arrived in Portland in a 1903 Oldsmobile to win the 1st transcontinental race for automobiles 44 days after leaving New York. Also noteworthy in 1905 was the formation of the "Portland Automobile Club" by a group of Portland auto buffs.
In 1907 a worlds speed record was set at Portland’s now extinct Irvington race track by William Wallace. The Portland Automobile Club also staged the state’s first endurance run made from Portland to Salem and back. Over 40 automobiles were entered in that event.
Most of us think of the annual "Rose Cup" event as a rather new feature to the Rose Festival but in 1909 the Rose Festival Association featured a first-ever Nationally sanctioned road race which began at East Division Street near the present Russelville School and the course ran to Gresham and the finish was a t Stark Street in Portland. Winners of this event received points toward a National Championship.
A new record was set in 1913 when F.C. Riggs drove a Packard from Portland to San Francisco in 36 hours and
The foreign car is not new to the Oregon Scene. In 1912 Portland received it’t first fleet of cabbies.......
As you can see Auto racing in Oregon has been with us for some time.
The 1955 Tillamook event was only an important milestone. In researching the subject some rather interesting facts were turned up regarding the State’s automotive history.
It was Henry Wetnme of Portland who, in 1899, became the first automobile owner of Oregon. That first horseless carriage was a Locomobile. Wenme topped that off with many firsts to the state: the first Reo; first Oldsmobile; first Thomas Flyer and the first Pierce Arrow.
The first auto constructed in Oregcn was built in 1902 by W.S.Richards of Albany. Richard’s speedster topped out at a rapid 12 mph.
In 1903 Otto Wilson brought Salem’s first car to town, an Oldsmobile, and in the same year E.H. Ingham introduced the first automobile to Eugene.
Sooner or later "free" motoring had to come to an end and Oregon’s 1905 Legislature established a law to regulate motor cars on county roads. A $3.00 fee for registration started the ball rolling towards our present license system. The first Oregon resident to register an automobile in Oregon was Helmus Thompson of Eugene.
It was 1907 when the City of Portland staged it’s first auto parade for the annual baseball opener.
In 1909 Portland put on the state’s first auto show in the Portland Armory and the state’s first "stop" street was at 20th and East Morrison and the first no-left was at the end
of the Morrison Street bridge.
In 1910 Eugene received it’s first carload of autos....Ramblers.
1911 was the year the license law was passed by the legislature.
In 1913 the Oregon State Highway Department was established and in 1917 it became the State Highway Commission.
In 1956 the "Second Annual Tillamook Road Race" was staged. This event was sponsored by the Cascade Sports Car Club and Pacific Sports Car Road Races Inc. and sanctioned by the Northwest Region, Sports Car Club of America. Entered in the 1956 event were such ancient drivers as: Wade
Carter in an MGTD; Jack Scoville in an Alfa Romeo Giulieta; Harry Eyerly in a Corvette and a Crosley Special; L.C.Thomas in a E.P. TR2; Bob Byrd in a C/P Jaguar XK120M. On the race official list we found some familiar faces: Cal Watson, Tech Inspector; Mrs. Harry Eyerly, Chief Scorer; Chickie Bucholz; Gary Long, Corner Marshal; Terry Bucholz, Assistant Crowd Control; Jim Patterson, Corner Marshal and Governor Elmo Smith who was the guest of honor.
Since 1956 it’s been the Sand Prix, Loyalty Days, Oregon Grand Prixs, Newport, OIR, Delta Park and all of the many organizations and events which have contributed so much to the automotive sport in Oregon. We can be proud of the fact that we are all playing an important part in the history of auto racing in Oregon and the Oregon Region SCCA can go down in the books as one of the greatest contributors to the sport of auto racing in the State’s history.

FIGURING LAP SPEEDS
The new circuit at West Delta Park was designed at a length of 1.91 miles. Length of the track is calculated by following the center line thereof. We offer the following highly accurate means of calculating lap speeds, utilizing the graph and instructions below, courtesy ROAD & TRACK.
Of course, if you have a slide rule and know how to use it, you won't need the chart. But for those who've never mastered the slipstick, you can have average lap time at any circuit, including Delta Park, by using the R & T graph.
It's use is very simple: By laying a straight edge across the lap time and circuit length the average lap speed can be read on the MPH scale. In the event someone laps Delta Park at less than 1 minute (highly unlikely), you'd be off scale. Never mind, simply double the time and distance and the answer will be the same on the MPH scale.
HAVE A HEADACHE THAT JUST WON'T QUIT?
R & T says the chart is only slightly less accurate than a slide-rule-but what it lacks in accuracy it makes up in speed, simplicity and low cost. And you can pencil in your favorite tracks at the appropriate place on the center scale.

THE NEW LOOK
Future Improvments Slated For Racing Complex
From the competitors' standpoint, the West Delta Park road racing circuit this year represents at least 100% improvement. This superb road racing circuit was designed by Michael Parker, Portland Landscape Architect. Parker is acknowledged as one of the two qualified circuit designers in the world.
Elsewhere in this program, acknowledgement is made by those involved in refurbishing the plant, an undertaking which demanded a tremendous amount of time and effort on the part of many individuals and organizations. Each would be quick to agree that additional and continuing improvements will be necessary in order to place Portland
*. firmly on the national drag and road racing map. And, such improvements are planned.
Within a year or two, that section of the circuit along the slough (Victory Ave.) must be vacated for public use.
Prior to that time, the final course design and construction will be completed.
Looking at the course diagram below, envision what the final circuit will look like. A new Turn 1 will begin much earlier, and sweep off to the right. After Turn 2, the circuit will cross the slough and then run this year's new section in reverse. After returning to the end of the drag strip, the circuit will take off toward the dike behind the present paddock area. The entire dike along the South boundary will be developed into a spectator area, and from the top, the entire course will be in view.
Also planned are permanent rest rooms, convenient concession stands, garage and warehouse areas, and all the facilities that make up a first class racing circuit.
The public's support of racing events at West Delta Park will help assure early completion of these plans.

The 1971 American Road Race of Champions
All year long, thousands of SCAA drivers compete in National Championship events across the nation for the right to race at the American Road Race of Champions. This event, which sports writers have dubbed “The Olympics of Auto Racing,” is where the final championships are decided, and in 1971 will be held at Road Atlanta, Atlanta, Georgia.
Many drivers at today’s Rose Cup races will be at Road Atlanta.
To be eligible, drivers must have earned a national competition license, which is issued to any driver applying who has competed in four regional events within a two-year period. Nationally licensed drivers compete on the SCCA national championship circuit, which consists of a series of events awarding points toward titles in each of SCCA's seven geographical divisions.
count points in only six races. Points they earn in races outside their own division may be earned too, but only two "out of division" races are allowed to count.
There are 22 racing classes and seven divisions, adding up to a total of 154 national class champions. These national champs, the runner-up and third-place drivers—a total of 462 of them—are the competitors invited to the ARRC at the end of each season.
Thus, the ARRC brings together the most competitive drivers in each racing class from every corner of the nation, each to race in events for their class of car—and the result is the most exciting road racing action seen anywhere in 1971.
These divisions are: Northeast Southeast Central Midwest
Southwest Northern Pacific Southern Pacific
Points are awarded in each of the class races on a finishing position basis of 9-6-4-3-2-1 for the first six positions. Drivers may compete in as many races as they wish, but they are allowed to

SPORTS CAR CLUB OF AMERICA
Celebrating its 26th year, SCCA enters 1970 with an enormous and unique schedule of road racing and sports car events. No one has been able to count all the SCCA activities. The number is in the thousands.
The icing on the SCCA cake, of course, is road racing and the club is the only national organization that concentrates on the kind of racing known throughout the world. There will be 2,000 races this year, taking place as 300 or more weekend events. They range from a massive race-driver training school program through local and national club championships to rich world title showdowns. All the international championship events held in this country—Watkins Glen, Sebring, Daytona Beach—and the Canadian-American Challenge Cup, the trans-American Championship for sedans, and the Continental Championship for single-seaters are SCCA professional events. And there is the extraordinary American Road Race of Champions.
With 19,000 members, SCCA is organized into local clubs or regions that run its events and a Connecticut headquarters office of two dozen people who administer the far-flung program. Each local region ’'belongs" to its members and runs a program of activities for itself and its guests. Each year, an SCCA region holds anywhere from six to 25 auto sport events and these can include races, rallies, time trials, autocrosses, slaloms, drivers' schools, shows and gymkhanas. Technical and social meetings and banquets add to the heavy activity.
Volunteer experts including the largest group of licensed racing specialitsts in the world conduct this striking schedule. They come from every vocation to meet at their common point of interest— cars.
New members are welcomed by SCCA. An enormous amount of fun and lasting friendships come from SCCA membership. Membership is open and convenient in four categories—regular, spouse, junior and corporate. Any SCCA member can sponsor an applicant. Write to the address below for membership information. If you would like a very complete kit of material about auto sports, racing and rally rules, and SCCA, write for " The $5 Kit" and include your payment.

GIRLS AND SPORTS CARS
"Fair Sex” Important Part of SCCA
By Erika Crawford
Conceded: A woman and an automobile do not seem to be a match made in heaven. Or wherever such matches are made. Least of all does the pairing of female and sports car seem compatible, as “sports car” most often is taken synonymous for vigor, rigor, and the out-of-doors, thus unlikely to be of vast appeal to the gentle sex. Like many another teaming, however, the combination in fact has worked out far better than could be expected in theory. The ladies have taken an active and varied role in sports ear affairs.
How it all started no one can be sure. Most likely is that as early cars rolled out of the factories and their proud owners trundled them home, the little women wasted scant time before wondering how to make them go. And why not? Even the earliest automobiles were a big improvement over Old Dobbin. The ladies surely were quick to coax for separate ignition keys.
All was not peaches and cream as far as the ladies were concerned, however. The women of the time were unaccustomed to things mechanical. The complexities of a gear shift were often beyond their grasp. Moreover, it was easy to mistake the “E” on a likely-looking dial for an indication that the car held “enough” of some vital substance. Clothing and hairstyle suffered, too. Protection from the elements was minimal in early cars and a lady’s dignity was often strained in trying to keep matters decorous.
Result? In vintage motoring days, little basis for friendship between lady and car for quite understandable reasons. This reputation of incompatibility hangs on today quite illegitimately — a mystique refuted by the modern car’s adaptability to the lady and by the lady’s enthusiastic acceptance of the modern car as a good deal more than a means of transportation.
Early in motoring, the men of the houses, with that club instinct dominant, began banding together, owners of vehicles of the same make. These groups, known as “marque” or “owners” clubs, inevitably required the services of secretaries, treasurers, and social organizers. Wives with nothing better to do (sic) were soon in service. Among the earliest organized automotive activities were concours d’elegance, contests in which automobiles are judged at rest for their appearance and perfection of maintenance. To sit still and look handsome? Such affairs are ideal. If the ladies do nothing more than decorate, they excel. They are very compatible with cars.
As sports cars entered the picture, and especially when they entered importantly after World War II with moving as opposed to standing competitions, the ladies found
their problems unfortunately magnified. Sports cars complicated everything. Despite their undeniable advantages to women . . . ease of handling; interior convenience due to small size; ease of handling; sense of confidence due to overall compactness; ease of handling; and, most important, the attention they attracted from the male of the species . . . there were problems.
An entirely new wardrobe is required by the advent of a sports car into a woman’s life. (Note; can be considered another major advantage.) Early sports cars afforded, if anything, far fewer creature comforts than those provided by family sedans. Apart from, “It’s different therefore it’s wrong” (we are conservative), a lady was faced with the additional problems of lack of headroom, a harsher ride, and an inescapable role in a peep show for which it was impossible to charge admission.
And then there were dials and gauges galore. For the woman who had barely learned the meaning of a gas gauge and speedometer (even if they were ignored), the mere sight of a tachometer and an oil pressure gauge — let alone the grim warning that their comprehension was essential — was likely to induce a bad case of the jitters. No, sports cars were not a “natural” for women. More credit to the fact mutual adaptation has progressed so well.
Why shouldn’t a woman feel free to enter into the world of sports ears? There is always an eager and willing male to lessen her innocence of the art of shifting gears. It turned out, perhaps with the onrushing freedoms of the 20th century, that many women were delighted to have a nodding acquaintance with “rpm,” “downshift,” “cadence braking,” and other terms. Whether exposed to sports cars through a husband’s enthusiasm or in chase of the male, more and more women found themselves involved in sports car activities.
If community Model T clubs or Stanley Steamer societies were once popular, they were far outnumbered by the MG Car Clubs, Triumph Sports Owners Associations, Uptown Sports Car Clubs and what have you which sprang up with the proliferation of sports cars. All of these organizations required presidents, vice-presidents, secretaries, and event organizers. Many of these positions were and are filled by women. Uncounted numbers of ladies agree to “help out with the paperwork” and find themselves doing much more. Coordinating a club’s program, volunteering “just this once” to head a rally committee, they find the position a permanent one. It isn’t necessary that the women be able to take an engine apart. Just that

they be enthusiastic and capable of performing the duties of office. They are and they do.
A nationwide organization called the Sports Car Club of America began flourishing. Not drawing its membership from owners of any particular make or in any single community, the SCCA dedicated itself to the entire scope of sports cars — their ownership and operation, regulation of events, development of technical information, and encouragement of safe and sportsmanlike conduct on public roads.
Today, the SCCA is the only national body for sports car events in this country. SCCA affairs take place through local clubs called regions. As rapidly as they progressed into participation in other clubs, women assumed administrative positions in their SCCA regions. In fact, several of them have been elected to the post of regional executive, the highest office within a region, and have held a number of positions on national SCCA committees.
The virtual axiom that two people cannot get together without a rivalry or contest springing up produces auto sports events. The natural outcry at any gathering of sports car people is “My car’s faster / better handling Z more reliable / better looking (choose one) than yours.” So activities are devised to test these various properties. Among them are races, rallies, and economy runs.
Perhaps unwillingly, the ladies first joined their men on rallies. (They knew about “golf widows.”) They often excelled in whichever function they adopted, driver or navigator.
A rally has been defined as “going over the hills to grandmother’s house when you don’t know where she lives or how to get there but you must be on time.” Because this description over-complicates a relatively simple, and highly enjoyable activity, the ladies were soon very active on the rally circuit. The supposed feminine propensity for mistaking directions led to many a remark at the ladies’ expense. It is questionable if the charge is based on fact to judge by the number of national rallying titles reaped by the fair sex.
Racing, at first glance, would seem to be entirely a man’s sport; but this "is emphatically not the case with road racing, the sort in which sports cars engage. As a matter of fact, unacknowledged by the men, the whole sport would come to a stop without the girls. There are numerous duties involved in race participation and organization which can be and often are best performed by women, not the least appealing or essential of which is Permanent Number One Member of some lucky man’s pit crew. Throughout the 20 years of the organization’s racing career, SCCA’s typical race driver is a married man. Those who aren’t, soon are changed.
The team member in slacks usually plays an essential role in timing her hero, errand-going, packing, and driving the whole darned station wagon-plus-trailer-with-race-car home Sunday night for the male achiever flaked out in the right-hand seat.
The ladies’ handling of race personnel registration as well as their having charge of the work attendant on race entries have made the two vital functions female preserves throughout the country. And you get to meet everyone.
Similarly, women make excellent timers and scorers for race events. No serious competition can take place without these two specialties capably staffed. The overwhelming majority of race timers and scorers are women, many of them with formal specialty licenses.
Women also act as workers on the technical and safety inspection crews which check competing cars entered in an SCCA event for compliance with the rules as well as adherence to safety regulations. Women assist in directing traffic and maintaining order by serving as marshals for the pit (repair areas just off the circuit) or for the grid (where cars are lined up prior to race).
The ladies have also successfully invaded another predominantly male area of racing, that of flagman. The term means just what it seems. At least three corner workers are stationed at each turn of a road race course to use flags in advising drivers of course conditions ahead, as well as to assist those unfortunate enough to meet with an incident. Other workers communicate by radio or telephone from each station to officials at the start-finish line. Women are both enthusiastic and capable corner workers and are the mainstays of many regions’ flagging and communications program.
Women race sports cars. Quite successfully, too, for they have earned a number of national and international wins against top (male) opposition. In the earlier days of sports car competition in this country, the ladies were allocated their own races (“powder puff derbies”) with no allowance made for differences in their vehicles. There hasn’t been one in years. They were separate but not equal. The ladies didn’t like them and they didn’t need them. They prove it by racing successfully with the men to the regular chagrin of the opposite sex.
The women who race, with thankfully few exceptions, are entirely average, unmechanical ladies and mothers whose professions range from teacher to secretary to chemist to housewife. There are dozens licensed to race in SCCA, their ages range from 21 at least to 55, and there is probably a grandmother among them,
A less startling field for women involved with sports cars is the economy run. A male driver must be responsible for the term leadfoot, and it does not surprise that a daintier shoe can be a featherfoot. Women who compete in economy runs very often emerge at the top of their class against the men.
In autocross competition — sort of an automotive track and field meet — it is the rare w ife who can resist trying to better her husband’s best timed run over the course.
But whether competing with men or assisting them, women have, an active role in sports cars activities. Judging by the appreciative comments heard, the men don’t mind their participating at all.
They’d better not — women are here to stay.

WE WON’T SELL YOU VOLVO’S NEW FUEL INJECTED SEDAN PIECE BY PIECE.
When you buy a Volvo 142E from us, your only factory-installed option is automatic transmission. (Otherwise, you get a 4-speed stick shift with electrically operated overdrive.)
You have to take the electronic fuel injected engine. Radial tires. Big 4-wheel power disc brakes. Leather covered bucket seats. They’re all included in the standard price of the 142E and won’t come out.
All of which makes it easier to shop for a high performance sedan.

You've never heard of us, have you?
Well, we sell cars. Not just any cars, mind you, but some pretty revolutionary ones from Germany:
The Porsche, which is one of the most renowned sports cars in the world. (The latest model, by the way, is quite extraordinary, with its engine in the middle.)
And the Audi, a "family-sized sedan that moves, stops and turns differently from just about every other car.
We'd like you to come in and get to know us. You can look around our service and parts department. And talk to our trained mechanic! And, last but not least, take a Porsche or an Audi for a test drive.
We're sure that after you've gone around the block a few times and noticed just how extraordinary they are, you'll find it very hard to for get their names.
Which means you'll find it very easy to remember ours.
