Another from Topanga 1953

Very cool starting line photo from the Frank Doherty collection. Very cool view of vintage helmets and "race" gear.

Notice the number plates made out of what looks like paper plates.

Yes that is exactly what they are.
We called em "pie plates". They
were still being used in desert races until the late 1970's at least. We also marked turn points
on the road into the race start so
new guys could find the camp.
