    That's the Cooper Maserati of Maurice Trintignant being driven to Riverside for the 1960 United States Grand Prix. For some reason the cars were kept several miles from the track and had to be driven to the track each day. Can you imagine Formula One cars driving on the SoCal freeways today?

    That was also done at Watkins Glen for the Grand Prix.

    Riverside Raceway had no garages to secure the cars. The cars were kept at local car dealerships etc. overnight and as said driven to the track as needed. Pete Lovely kept his Cooper Ferrari at Skip Fordyce's motorcycle dealership I believe, I saw it headed towards the 91 one afternoon. This was the 1960 U.S. G.P. Another thing you would not see today was after the race they opened up the gates to the track and allowed anyone who wished to drive around the track to the pits and get out and mingle with the drivers, crews, and cars. Riding with my Dad in a '49 F-1 through turn Nine and getting to meet one of my heroes, Phil Hill is a memory that will not fade.
