David, I have noted that elsewhere in cyberspace that there are those from a small island nation off the coast of France and the Low Countries, one that was for a long, long time a backwater in the realm of automobile racing, who are complaining (whining might be more accurate) about the statement I have highlighted. While there might be a bit of hyperbole involved in that statement, the essence of the notion being offered is probably closer to reality than they realize -- or can accept. It is one of those statements that if it is not really quite true, it should be. My recent research into US racing through the 1920 season (which is still on-going and on-going and on-going, pretty much an Engergizer-Bunny-as-researcher-&-historian sort of effort it seems) has really made it clear how the locus of US racing shifted from the East Coast to the West Coast during that time. Even though fully aware of how much racing took place on the Pacific Coast, and California in particular, it is still quite interesting to observe the extent to which automobile racing took hold there during that era. It is also interesting to note how little of that racing appears as part of the historical record. I did watch the clip and it was intersting to see Harold in action on the Pasadena-Altadena hill climb, an event pretty much forgotten by most. It was a surprise to realize that many years ago on a visit to the LA area that I had actually been on the course and never realized it.
