    Default Race history help!!

    Hey guys-
    New guy here, lookin for any help with any info at all on the race history of my boat. It's a 76 Hondo pantera straight deck center steer.the boat has been in my family for almost 30 years now my dad originally traded a car for it in the early 80s and in the last 10 years it's become my little project. Boat is as it was when he bought it besides a motor swap. The boat had numbers on the side originally and drivers name on bow which undortunalty my dad buffed off years and years ago but you can still make out the letters/numbers in fluorescent light. The boats name was/still is "circle jerk"number EJ65 and driver was Don Alrich. If anyone remembers this boat or the driver I'd love to hear about it. Also I've tried to find out what class EJ was but have not been able to find anything. Thanks for any help!

    Default EJ

    EJ = Endurance Jet. Ran a marathon circuit that included:
    ET = Endurance Tunnel
    KM = forerunner of Grand National (GN).
    All were 500 cu in / NA / gasoline fuel.
    Also on the circuit were unlimited outboard tunnels, the forerunners of Formula 1.
    Races were a minimum of 100 miles, up to 9 hours.
    Venues included Redwood City, CA, Parker, AZ, San Diego, CA, Walker Lake, NV, Comanche Res, CA, Lake Havasu, AZ and others.
    Time frame ? late 70's, early 80's ?
    All the above is only the best I can remember.

    Yes, like Circular posted, it was the EJ was the marathon jet class. Be interesting to know how big the fuel tanks in that thing are/were.

    Joe Mondello kicked some serious ass in that class when it ran. He won the jet class back to back Parker 9 hr enduros with a Olds powered Spectra.
