Colorado Gran Prix 1981. Original Poster
Colorado Gran Prix 1981. Original Poster. Further info comes from my chum, Frank Barret of Toad Hall Motorbooks:
Toad Hall Motorbooks Continental Divide Raceway, near Castle Rock, Colorado, between Denver and Colorado Springs, opened in the 1960s, mostly hosting drag races and SCCA regionals and nationals, the latter on its challenging road course. The track then stepped up to USRRC, USAC, and Trans-Am events that drew the likes of Foyt, Andretti, Bocars, Shelby Cobras, Meister Brauser Scarabs, Augie Pabst, et al. Dan Gerber, of baby-food fame, recalls going off the track in his Cobra, obliterating a fence, and ending up on nearby I-25; he then drove to the admission gate, where officials were reluctant to let him back in, but he eventually got back into the race and finished it. A fatal pit accident almost closed the track, but it remained open through the early 1980s, mostly for SCCA and club events.
Thank you Frank !
