Paramount Ranch - Track Diagram From 1957 Program USGS Satellite
Photo From 1994 Notes From A Visit, October, 2002
can see Ann Martin's drawing of the course conforms better to the topo map
on a previous page than it does to the aerial photo. Still, there is no question
this is the old racing ground.
look at Bob Norton's photos on Tam's Old Racecar Site (http://www.tamsoldracecarsite.net/
- What's New...), noting their directions on that map, will help orient the
viewer. It is not obvious how quickly the elevation changes: it seems Turns 5
and 8 are at about the same level, but the uphill from 5 through 7 leads to an
abrupt drop down to 8. The first Eric Hauser photo and the Turn 5 photos on Al
Long's pages (http://www.allongs.com - nostalgia... - Fast Racing - Part 4)
are looking down on the beginning of the up slope. The second Hauser picture gives
a taste of the end of the down slope. I visited the Fabulous 50s
racers at a reunion here on the first Saturday in October, 2002. Photos of the
gathering and the track will eventually find their way to this site. The
do-it-yourself picnic and bench-racing sessions took place under the elongated
roof visible between the "8" marker and the red track line to the west.
The marker itself is located close to where a young lady spent a couple of hours
doing a video interview with Dick Guldstrand.
other buildings south and west of the "8" marker are what remains
of the Wild
West town featured in hundreds of movies.
