F5000 at KIC 2009
The Kohler International Challenge has a number of different racing classes/groups. Formula 5000 is one of my favorites as I came of age when these cars "ran in anger". This is some footage I threw together while photographing the overall event. Many Still photographs continue to be posted at peteluongophoto.com. Check 'em out!
From Wikipedia: Formula 5000 was introduced in 1968 as a class within SCCA Formula A races, a series where single seaters from different origins were allowed to compete, but which rapidly came to be dominated by the cars equipped with production-based American V8s. The concept was inspired by the success of the Can-Am Series, which featured unlimited formula sports cars fitted with very powerful engines derived from American V8s; the idea was to replicate the concept using open wheel racing cars. F5000 enjoyed popularity in the early 1970s in the U.S. and featured drivers such as Mario Andretti, Al Unser, Sam Posey, Mark Donahue, Jody Scheckter, Brian Redman, David Hobbs, Tony Adamowicz, Ian Ashley, John Cannon and Eppie Wietzes.
