Colorado Gran Prix 1981. Original Poster
Colorado Gran Prix 1981. Original Poster. Further info comes from my new 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. I recall driving the 911E there in PCA time trials--even spinning off the 100mph Turn 1. As far as I know, only two posters ever appeared to promote the track: Look at the first one, and you'll see why. Anyway, today these posters are extremely rare.
Thank you Frank !
