As we remember Dan Gurney, here is the second episode of a six-part 2014 video series, Dan Gurney: All American Racer, Birth of AAR presented by Bell Helmets.
Welcome to the second episode of Dan Gurney: All American Racer, Birth of AAR presented by Bell Helmets. Gurney was one of the greatest drivers, innovators, thinkers, that America has produced. He remains the only American team owner to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix in his own car, and RACER‘s Robin Miller took the opportunity to accompany Gurney down the hallway of the All American Racing workshop in Santa Ana, California, and ask him for the stories behind some of the many hundreds of photos on the walls. The result is a six-episode series giving some insight into the genial gentleman – and gentle man – who turned All American Racing into a winner on both sides of the Atlantic.
In this second episode, Dan tells Robin about taking the Eagle into Formula 1 and talks of Nurburgring and Spa-Franchorchamps, the two most daunting tracks on the grand prix schedule at that time.
Dan Gurney: All American Racer, was produced by Adam Friedman’s Vertical Assent for RACER.
