Great story on one of the classic California drivers who proved he could race and win in almost any class he tried. Follmer’s story needs no embellishment but I’d like to offer the following correction. George did not win 7 straight Under-2-liter class wins on his way to the overall championship in the ’65 USRRC series. My good friend Gerry Bruihl beat George at Laguna Seca, where my dad was a member of his pit crew. His 2-liter Climax-powered Lotus 23 took 5th OA and 1st in class that day. Jerry Titus also beat Follmer at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Washington, with his Elva-Porsche. Keep up the great stories.
