Contact IMS directly.

I know that the IMS gift shop used to keep a lot of old stock of this stuff. They may even have all the old race films updated onto DVD now.
Many times in the past I have used them to get 8 X 10 copies of vintage Indy Car photos.

Which reminds me, they probably still have the official Fiero Indy Pace Car photos. I know that they will make copies for a fee.

By the way, I was at that race working on a pit crew that year!

That's super cool (to me at least) Which car? What was your reaction when Pat Bedard had his crash?

I crewed for Pancho Carter, (car #10) that year.
Honestly, I don't recall Bedard's crash affecting me much at all at the time.

Back in 1973 I crewed for the Dayton Walther Team when Salt Walther had his spectacular crash at the race start.
Both Salt and his Dad were a-holes, but I didn't like seeing him get hurt like he did. His hands were pretty badly burned after that.
Seeing the tub of that chassis sliding upside down along the front straight spraying fuel everywhere with Salt's feet sticking out of the front of it is an image I'll never forget...

Swede Savage's fatal crash...That affected me a lot.

In 1964 I was with my Dad at the Indy race as a spectator and watched Dave MacDonald and Eddie Sachs crash and burn to death in their cars right in front of us.
That horrifying image has never left me after all these years.
Swede was someone I knew and liked and his death in the similar way MacDonald and Sachs died really hit me.

My nephew now drives Indy Lights for Sam Schmidt, (Schmidt Peterson Motorsports).

He will be driving in the Lights races in the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach this weekend.



He will be driving INDY CAR next year.

My younger brother is also a team owner: www.teameracing.com

(Lots of motor racing background in our family...)

How fast was the Fiero Pace Car? Anyone have a good guess on the 0-60 or even 1/4 mile? I assume it was quicker than 15.7

Ask John Callies. He drove the pace car for the start of the race.

What I recall was that everyone seemed concerned all month about the low speed of the Fiero in comparison to the Indy Cars for the start of the race so they gave the Fiero a HUGE head start on the field.
The pace car was almost a full 1/2 lap, (1.25 miles), ahead of the front row at the start.
I remember seeing the Fiero pace car parked at the end of pit row and seeing John standing *out* of the car before the front row of the field crossed the start line and took the green flag.

I believe I have seen some old video that briefly shows the pace car parked at the end of pit row when the race cars come across the line at the start.

0-60 in 6.2 sec. 1/4 mile 14.6 @ 96 mph. Top speed 144mph with a 3.54 final drive ratio. The car ran a four lap certification average of 136 mph at IMS.
