The Bridge had another National race in August.  Here are the results
Bob Hathaway's beautiful
yellow Berlinetta  
Big Jake did double duty and finished 2d in AP in the Bunch Berlinetta 
before hopping into the RSK
Bucher's rarely drove the Berlinetta,
but was quick when he did
Bucher didn't like boards so Spank
gave hand signals, here he tells Bucher dinner is at 6
 
Yenko scared me so badly with this wicked slide I jumped and shot
and got this fab blurred photo
Formula Jr Cooper driven by
Fred Work and now restored and
owned by John Lindsay
Jake was not a great mechanic, but
as a WWII bomber pilot he knew
his way around a car
Jake checking his brand new
Goodyears before practice to make sure they have the right pressure
Buffalo's Dave Adams in an Alfa powered Lotus called a Lofa  Constantine suffered from a
big push and finished 4th
