Great picture! I remember when Bob started his racing career
and shared his dreams of the future with me one day on the porch of
the Marlboro Hilton. He achieved all of them and then some.
In a message dated 8/24/2011 8:45:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time,
not to good at posting pic's but here is Doug & Bob. He looks
pretty happy to me. If you go to Doug's Facebook page there are a ton of
photos and a in car video of qualifying laps. Steve Knoll was there so
he sould have pic's on his website. I believe Bob was the one who said
" 1-2 finsh, first for Group 44 since 1984"

- Group 44
Just a fun bit of Monterey Historic racing news.
"Group 44 finishes 1-2, first time since 1984"
Two XJR's were racing in the GTP class. First place
was Rick Knoop ( XJR 5 ) and my nephew Doug Smith was driving the second
place (XJR 7). I have been following the event thru Doug's Facebook
posting. His first time at Monterey. Talk about a kid getting the keys to
the candy shop.
