Torrey Pines was one of those fabled venues where road racing took place on public streets and roads during the late forties and early fifties. In addition to Torrey Pines, sports car competitions were held at Watkins Glen, Bridgehampton, Elkhart Lake, Pebble Beach and Golden Gate Park. This book constitutes a history of the eight events held at Torrey Pines starting in 1951 and ending in 1956. Included are each program cover, lists of officials, entrants and results.
Torrey Pines Remembered is illustrated with more than 150 archival photographs, many of which have never been previously printed. A highlight is remembrances contributed by a number of those who drove, were officials or spectators. Each race meeting is described by reprints of articles from various publications. Torrey Pines Remembered is essentially a scrapbook and is labeled as such on the cover. A few ads from programs add considerable interest. One even features Lucille Ball helping to promote a Singer roadster.
