Thanks all, and pass the Honey!29/08/2016 #39 AnonymousYour writing is some of the best I've seen online @Dean Owen. This piece is as all the others brings me to where the characters are - to their time and place - as @Aurorasa Sima described, I too forget I am reading! Thanks for the adventure your writing brings me @Dean Owen!29/08/2016 #35 Dean Owen#30 I always resented Cooper giving up Formula One in 1968 despite the huge success of Mini Coopers in rally car racing. I think John Cooper's heart was broken when his father died. He has said in interviews it was due to the rising costs, bigger engines. Cooper still managed two Grand Prix podiums in their final season. I think he just wasn't as passionate as Chapman, Mclaren, Brabham - more risk averse. Would love to see the Cooper name back in F1 instead of on the back of a BMW Mini. Would love to hear about the "Monza" Wall. The banking on the Monza circuit was absolutely lethal. I don't know much about the Meadowdale circuit, but if it has anything similar, I can imagine it claimed a few lives too. Thanks Phil.28/08/2016 #31 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#12 haha It was the '60's for example, back when the gas station attendant ran (literally) to wash your windows, check your oil, and fill your gas tank (it's still this way in New Jersey, by law I understand. I remember my father opening the window and the man would ask, "What can I fill you up with, "regular" or "ethel?" My dad said, "Ethel, please." ~that was a memory walk just now.27/08/2016 #30 Phil Friedman#29 Well, @Dean Owen, I will tell some other stories, if you think they may be of interest to members of Cafe beBee. About, for example, racing against the Cooper versions of the Morris Mini. Doing the "Monza wall" in a downpour at Meadowdale Raceway in Carpentersville, IL. And I'll expect you to continue telling yours, which I will watch for avidly. Cheers!27/08/2016 #29 Dean Owen#26 That is quite a story! I just watched a video of the Wilmot Hills circuit. Looks a lot like the circuits of England in the day. I know quite a few Coopers ended up in the States and Canada. I have been trying to track the Owen/Knight Streamliner which ended up in Canada. I found the car above, which has been restored and is racing in Germany; http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/gallery/Cooper-T53-Climax-47980.html. Thanks for that gem. Would love to hear more if you ever decide to post an article on your dabble in racing....27/08/2016 #27 Phil Friedman@Dean Owen - I love these stories you write. Seriously. Let me reciprocate with this one. Mid-sixties. I am class racing at an event held by the Midwest Council of Sports Cars at a track in Wilmot Hills, WI. I am racing in G-Production. But I am watching a race for C-Modified -- which is actually a fully open class. The two top contenders in the race are a modified 1966 Corvette (a bored out, ported, and fully tuned monster) and a.... second hand F1 Cooper. I remember the race as the most exciting I have ever seen, including the many professional races I've watched. The two drivers dueled wheel to wheel over the .9 mile course with several hills, many lefts and rights, and one 180-degree reverse. In the straightaway, the Corvette would pull away from the Cooper, which would then catch up by roaring lickety-split into the next turn, braking ever so hard at the last split second, and passing the Corvette on the inside of the turn. Then the process would be repeated. Over and over again for, as I remember, 25 laps. On about the 22nd lap, the Cooper had mechanical trouble and had to retire, leaving the Corvette the winner. But the Corvette driver insisted on sharing the winner's lap with the driver of the Cooper. Cont... pt.II27/08/2016 #26 Phil Friedman@Dean Owen - pt II
One of the reasons I remember it so vividly is that later, in the pits, where my car was parked next to the Cooper, I saw murder almost committed by the Cooper driver on one of his pit crew, a cousin of his. The Cooper has this single huge caliper disk break on its rear axle. Because of the way the race had been run (more and harder braking than on a longer course), that disk in the brake was almost red hot when the car came off the track. Since the race was over, for some insane reason the pit crew member involved decided to cool it off with a bucket of water. He got to about two steps from the car with the bucket, when he was tacked by the driver and owner of the car, who began pummeling him with his fists, yelling how the pit crew member was going to warp that hot disk by dashing cold water on it, and that there were no replacements available -- anywhere in the world. We dragged the Cooper driver off his cousin, got the driver to accept some Champagne and the good wishes of those who had watched the race. And eventually, we all went on our merry ways. What a day. And what marvelous cars the Coopers were, including the diminutive F3s.
Thanks for the stroll down memory lane. Cheers!
