Lewis Flink’ son Joe attended and saved magazines from this race.  Looking for more photos, very sharp memory.  Contact available if of interest.

I just saw your 2010 post to Roger Linton about the Scorpion FJ.
Very interested in talking to you.

I believe the Vanderbilt Cup was also awarded at some of the early races at Bridgehampton and that my Dad, Walter Luftman, probably raced in some of them in the early ‘60s. Does anyone have any records pertaining to this? I’d love to see them.

Mike,  There is a website with Bridgehampton SCCA photos and results; you can Google it.
Dave Nicholas has a great site  1950s-60s racing NE-SCCA

I’ll bet the Watkins Glen research center would have results for your Dad, too.

If he got down to Vineland, South Jersey region I can help.  Do you know the car make & color?  What years he raced?

Good luck with your search!
