We went back into the SCCA archives and found, from 70 years ago this month, a little trick that we’re certain isn’t in the current rotation – but maybe should be? This little number would set the internet ablaze if broken out today.
Then Miami-Region RE George Huntoon expertly devised a gymkhana course for his fellow participants that might look similar to a modern-day autocross, with a significant twist.
“With reference to the sketch of the gymkhana course,” our March SportsCar article explains, “it might be explained that the ‘touch barrier’ at Stations Numbers 2 and 7 consisted of a pole lying on two boxes which had to be touched, but not rolled from the boxes.”
Talk about a challenging element!
For reference, here are the results from that day:
