Since June 2020, I have featured photographs whose black and white negatives were found after being lost for 50 years in my archives -- the same period of time since Bruce McLaren died testing a new Can-Am car at Goodwood Racetrack, UK, June 2, 1970. I will be posting more classic Can-Am photographs from the 1969 and 1970 Riverside Raceway Can-Am and Grand Prix races in the near future.

"Get quacking!" (translation "Spread the News")
We, or, actually, I should say "I have been working my tail feathers off to get this new site o' mine functional by June 1, 2020 (check, done)." That was the easy part. Now, and for the near future, I will be posting my large inventory of fine art photographs from the serious to delirious for your viewing and purchasing pleasure. My Art Hat has become a permanent fixture. I don't usually need a hard hat for this kind of construction, unless I fall asleep and fall out of my chair after a few days of sleep deprivation. It might be time to invent a combo Art/Hard Hat. Oh, yah, and add on a Thinking Cap app.
This site is the culmination of several earlier sites that I created and utilized for my book and publication company, for a "duckitude" project, and for an early version of an online fine photography gallery and its short-lived brick-and-mortar existence . . . Click here to read more at 'About'
"Full Tilt Bruce" -- Bruce (#4) Signaling at Turn 6 RIR 10/26/1969
VF Orig. Print Signed by Photographer of Bruce McLaren, Turn 6, 10/26/1969, Riverside Raceway, CA
Entitled "Full Tilt Bruce." Bruce (#4), full tilt at Turn 6, signaling passing, then passing wide. It was a classic natural move for him, swinging out around the slower Lola in front of him.
McLaren had the keys to both Turns 6 and 7 at Riverside International Raceway (RIR) and was notorious for passing wide on Turn 6. Turn 6 in the 60s and 70s was notorious for challenging drivers with its 180 degree bend starting off cambered inside and uphill, flattening out at the top of the angular curve and then turning into a slight cambered outside road at the tail of the turn: tricky.
This was his last race at Riverside. He did not finish (accident). Teammate Denny finished first in 1969 (#5), 1970 and 1971.
In June 1970, Bruce died in a mechanical failure accident testing a new Can Am car at Goodwood, UK, after accelerating to approx. 170 mph on the Lavant to Woodcote straightaway.
This year, 2020, is the 50th year since we lost Bruce. This year, 2020 (on March 2), is the year I was shocked to find, stuck in the corner of a box in storage, what I thought had been lost forever: most of the black and white 35mm film negatives from my photography of the 1969 and 1970 Can-Am Races at RIR.
