My Formula 5000
The highlight of Fred Phillips 1973 season was his selection by
Volkswagon of America to represent the United States at an
international Super Vee runoff event at Hockenheim, Germany in
October. Unfortunate problems during the Hockenheim event
prevented him from scoring well, but didn’t diminish his determination
for a top notch season this year(1974). Fred began racing in 1968 and
had driven Formulas C, Ford and F5000 before entering the Super
Vee Pro Series in 1972. He won the pole position at last year’s Road
America VW Gold Cup event, the fastest race lap and finished fourth in
the race there, following a third place performance at the July 22
Watkins Glen event. When not competing in the VW Gold Cup
Championship, Fred operates a Shreveport, La. Real estate
development firm.
