A Berkeley at Riverside (1957)


OK...I'll have to admit it. This isn't a video about Berkeleys at all. It isn't even a video about mini or microcars. But -- if you are patient (or if you think a video of sports cars racing at Riverside in 1957 is pretty cool), you will see a Berkeley about 15 minutes into the video. A very cool 328 or 492 with raised headlights.

And you'll also have the opportunity to see Maseratis, Corvettes, Porsches -- and a host of other late 1950's racers.

Check it out at "The Chicane".

I raced a Berkeley SE 492 there at Riverside in October 1958. I wonder if anyone would have footage of that race.

Jim -- we'll keep a look out for any footage from Riverside. We are guessing you must be Jim Fox. There are some impressive photos of that race that you supplied to the Coldplugs site. We'd love to see more.
