2022 Membership Spokesperson Eddie Cheever:
My earliest memories are divided; before racing and everything after. My first taste of racing came when I was 9 years old, attending the 1965 Monza 1000 KM with my fanatical car-guy father. The speed, smells, colors, and sounds of the powerful engines mixed with an uneasy feeling of danger. Although the 30-year-old Swiss driver Tommy Spychiger, driving a Ferrari 365P, lost his life at the Parabolica portion of the circuit that day, attending that race marked the beginning of my fascination with motorsport—and my career.
From that first race on, I absorbed every detail I could find on drivers, cars and tracks. That fascination is still firmly intact 57 years later. Now, with an archive of photographs, film, books and other materials like that found at the International Motor Racing Research Center in Watkins Glen, I can now share this passion with my children and they will be able to share it with theirs.
Sharing these experiences will only be possible when we safeguard our history, and the IMRRC does just that. Your support will help generations to come enjoy the rich history of motorsport, in all its facets.
Please join me in ensuring that this important work continues!
