If you've seen this picture before, you'll know that the pilot at the tiller of
this MK II (B382100275 LRXFE) is a fellow named Bob Reiser.
Bob was everything "speed" & one of
STOA's pivotal, formative members.
When someone uses the term "lead-foot", I can't help but think of Mr.
Reiser. I was at this 1980 Tigers United VII event,
working the very autocross section pictured. Bob & I were assigned
as course workers & manning this position during the action before his run group
took to the grid. Now let me tell you, if any driver through here
clipped a cone, Bob jumped up & instead of putting the cone back where it
had been, he "adjusted" the position to favor competitors. Soooooooo,
guess what? By the time it was his turn to negotiate the pylons - as the
kids say -
