Southern Pacific Division sources
Although Los Angeles was one of the homes of American motor racing, we have few sources of information for southern Californian FB racing in this period. Competition Press & Autoweek had some regional coverage up to 1973 and Formula magazine then took over for a period in the mid-1970s. However, we are keen to acquire or borrow 1960s, 1970s and 1980s copies of SCCA regional publications from this Division. The key ones are:
- California Sportscar [1960s] (California Sports Car Club)
- Post Grid [1969-1970] (California Sports Car Club Region)
- Finish Line [from 1971] (California Sports Car Club Region)
- Gridlines (San Diego Region)
We are also keen to get scans of entry lists from SCCA Nationals for this division.
