  • Vic Elford

    Legendary race car driver Vic Elford, arguably the most “versatile” driver in racing history, has passed away following a battle with cancer.

    It's a sad loss indeed. He was fast, versatile, and friendly.

      Interestingly, I read he drove in four NASCAR races back in the day.

        RIP, Quick Vic. Jim Hall said Elford was the only driver who came close to driving the 2J at the limits.

          My brother and I had the privilege of a short conversation with Mr. Elford at Laguna Seca during the 2004 Monterey Historic Race weekend, and I believe he had mentioned setting the track record there on the original circuit configuration with the 2J. He was also one of the masters of the hard to tame Porsche 917 LeMans prototype, and was pretty handy with those Trans Am Mustangs, as well! Another one of the greats lost to the world of motorsports.
          RIP, sir. Thanks for all the exciting drives! -- Ernie
