    Its from the big boat race in Lappeenranta, Finland 1973.
    My dream just came thru and I won the race everybody told me I could not win..
    Its me in the Evinrude t-shirt, Hans Holmén next to me in front of my #99 Clerici/Evinrude SS. Bo Nilson and Orjan behind in his Schulze/Merc.
    More Jørgen Jørgensen pictures from 1973. This is from the Nordic Championship race in Holback, Denmark. Jorgen was the CEO for Evinrude Denmark.
    It was raining all weekend in Holback but it did not stop the Swede from winning in the SE class driving the #99 Clerici/Evinrude SS boat..Yes its me in the first picture.

    Cees Van der Velden and his Velden Racing/Johnson V6 RS 3 liter, looper fuel injection.
    Pretty sure its Ziggy from OMC fueling up his OZ class boat. Maybe Mouse to the far left helping.

    Default Brakes was used for a few years.

    Bob Spalding #11 Velden Racing/Carlsberg/Johnson RS V6 3 liter looper fuel injection.
    Here you can see the air operated brake cylinders at the rear of the cat. This is from Drammen, Norway 1979, maybe 1980

    In the second picture Bob is fueling up and next to the fuel tank is the air pressure bottle.

    Here is a few pictures..more is coming.
    Thank you Cathy.

    Text for the last picture:
    Jimbo, Carina and me in the old little western town Oatman, Arizona. If I remember right the year was 1999.
    I say, "Cathy, you should see all the pictures Lars is posting of Jimbo." She say, "I sent them to him....but they came back a time or two" Oh, I said...Jimbo just had cataract surgery on his left eye, but is doing very well, Cathy reports.

    When you call Jimbo, Cathy answers, "Jimbo's secretary."

    Same Clerici/Evinrude boat from 1974 with my own race #99. In Paris you always was forced to use the number giving to you for that race.
