    I'm trying to trace the competition history of my mk6 Nike Formula Ford. I'm restoring it here in England, but it was shipped straight to Bob Smith Racing in Michigan in early 1970, I purchased the car just over two years ago and brought it back home.
    The original owner and driver was a guy called Tony La Marca, who I am in contact with, but he has no info or log books on the car. Does anyone out there remember the car being raced between 1970 and (say) 1974 in Michigan/Detroit? Any info would be gratefully appreciated. You can contact me at tyrrell005@hotmail.com

    Gary, post some pics of the car!
    I trust you painted it Tyrrell blue...


    Also, I believe the early Nike's were sold under the name Baker here in the US.

    Hi Robert, yes ok, here's a couple of pictures. Funnily enough, after all this time am just about to sell the car, I haven't raced it for about 4 years now & want to get more track time, so saloon cars are calling.
    here's two photos from Brands Hatch, hope you like the colour scheme, they are in honour of my favourite racing driver, Ronnie Peterson, who was Swedish.

    Sorry, the pics should show up as clickable thumbnails, but they're not, no idea why.
    However, if you click on the link they still go through to the photos.

    Just saw this thread now. Might want to make a post in the forums for the race track Waterford Hills Road Racing. www dot waterfordhills dot com

    It's a local road racing club/ track in Clarkston, MI just outside of Detroit. Very knowledgeable group that may be able to help you out.


    You might also want to give Keith Averill of Averill Racing Stuff a call too. He's runs a race supply and prep shop specializing in formula cars. www dot racing-stuff dot com.

    Good luck with your search.
