Old Alfa Racer Pics West Coast

Here is a video from my 1600 spider at the Sept 2015 Coronado Speedfest historic races. It is a great event supporting our Military. The event is set-up on an active Navy base and there is tons of great stuff to see. Thanks to Brad, Tom and Lynn for all their work helping me get there.
Enjoy,
Dave B

Enjoyed the Video, and nice driving!

What was the Red Thing in front of you early?

I`ve noticed over the years, that a racecar`s perceived monetary value by the owner, decreases it`s corner speeds inversely.

Thanks for the compliment RJ.
The red car is Mike Denman in a '66 Marcos GT. 1800 cc MGB engine. I don't know what it weighs but it is pretty darn fast down the straights. The view from the rear facing camera shows that he made several attempts to pass me back early in the race. I'll post that view next.

The view out the back from my 1600 spider. Lots of fun passing cars.

Coranado/ 1600 Spider

Dave Nice job and good video, my son races my old 1600 Spider that I raced for 30 or 40 years, he had a good race with maybe that same Marcos at the Portland Historics the last couple of of years. You must be some relation to Nadine? She raced a TZ (1).If so I raced with her husband (your dad?) in the early 60s when he raced a TI Super, yeah a real one! My TI Super was a "fake", Alfa wouldn't sell us one so we made one!

Denny,
Yep, I'm the youngest of Nadeene's 5 sons. The car I'm driving in the videos is the very same car my mom raced in '64-65. I found it a little over 4 yrs ago and restored it back to the '64 livery and configuration. My mom's TZ just changed owners in 2015. It had been owned by Jerry Rosenstock for 30+ years. A gentleman from Florida purchased it for a significant sum and is now having it restored by a notable Alfa expert. It should be looking fabulous when it is done.

My dad, Al, sadly just passed away in September. He was 86. In going thru some of his archives I found some great pics of his TI Super from '65 on the lot at Mo-Tech Ltd in San Diego which was the dealership my parents had.

I would be great to meet you and your son some day. Please add some pics of your own to this thread.
Thanks,
Dave Brengle

Memories

I started spectating at races in the '60s at Marlboro Raceway in Maryland and saw my first Alfas in competition there. I watched more exotic Alfas race when the Army took me to Germany, but that was cut short by an opportunity for a southeast Asian vacation.

When I returned from Vietnam, I taught ROTC at Eastern Washing State College (now EWSU). I bought a Lotus 11 from Evel Knievel's father, raced it for two years, then raced a Giulia Super for a year - 1972.

I raced in Conference - here are a couple pics from Westwood and SIR. I fell in love with Supers because of that car and finally bought another one when I retired from the real world.

After the Army returned me to the east coast, I again spectated until 1983, when I started writing about sports car racing. Credentials were thanks to Alfa Owner magazine, and I covered a lot of Alfas in racing, including in F1 and Indycar. But it was at the Runoffs where I enjoyed myself the most, until SCCA regulated Alfas out of competitiveness. I still cover the Runoffs and love doing it, but it was much more fun when there were Alfas running.

The 45DCOE14 Webers and the special billet oil pump that you restored for me are both under the hood and working great! Thanks for all of the help.
