Bob and Diane Alder's
Team Terrific Racing
to TeamTerrificRacing.com!!! This website chronicles the life and times of Bob and Diane Alder, probably with
way more information than you ever wanted to know. But it's a great way to share with others what's going on in our
lives and to document events so that we'll be able to recall them when
we're old and feeble.
website plus our SmugMug and YouTube efforts pretty much exhausts our "social
media" skills. Since we don't do Facebook or Twitter, this
website is our only real opportunity for self-aggrandizement.
we have something to bring to your attention, we'll just have to send
you an email, probably with a link to something here. Whoever
thought that an email would be "old
school." Oh, well.
The website mainly revolves around our mutual passion, racing our vintage race cars.
There is, however, a
"Friends & Family" section where we also share our recent doin's with our
family. We must admit, however, that
the bulk of this site is intended for
"racer trash" like us. And remember, you can
click on most all the images to see the picture full size.
supplement this website, there are two other "Social
SmugMug website, http://alder.smugmug.com/
for extensive, if not exhaustive, photos organized into various "galleries."
It's a great way to show you
LOTS of pictures. Each of the various galleries
is probably linked
from elsewhere on this site, but going
directly to the SmugMug site will allow you to chose from any of the galleries.

Lola T-620 Formula Super Vee
2013 - The car is now sold. And most interestingly, it was
purchased by the guy who bought the car new back in 1978.
Wow! For more detail on the incredible ending of this story, click
Lola T-620 FSV — Now
This is a recently completed full ground-up restoration.
The tub and all the suspension bits are perfect, it has a freshly built engine,
new calipers, new paint, new fuel cell foam, new onboard fire
extinguisher, a Hewland MK8 5-speed fully inspected and shift forks
adjusted. I spent 400 hours (No
kidding!) restoring the car. The car only has a tiny bit of
track time to test the car,
obtain tire temps and final brake bias adjustment.
A complete extensive collection
of the restoration photos, beginning to the ironic ending, is available by CLICKING
April 16th, 2013 - Just received my copy of the May issue of
Vintage Racecar. In that issue Mark Brinker has devoted his
monthly "Hidden Treasures" column to the full Lola
his article on this great story here. This is the second time Mark
Brinker has featured a car that I've restored. Back in 2005 he covered
my Russell-Alexis "Barn Find" in his "Hidden Treasures" column. Thanks,
Mark. It's fun to be famous.
Our "everyday" race cars are the Miller Sports Racer (Diane's car) and my venerable Titan Formula Ford. The "new" race cars
in the stable is the Alexis FB car (finished in 2006) and the
Bobsy (First raced in 2010). Click on each image for a brief description. A very complete history of the Alexis Project
is covered in its own section, The Alexis FB Project.
As well, the Bobsy has it's own SmugMug gallery
covering its refurbishment.
