John Morton

El Segundo CA

John was just another talented West Coast SCCA Club racer with big aspirations and little money to make them happen until the 1970 season when the merger of John’s talents and personality and Peter Brock’s new affiliation with import car newcomer Datsun put both men and Datsun on the racing radar … The results were the 1970-71 SCCA National Championships in C Production, and 1971-72 SCCA Trans-Am 2.5 Challenge titles … John also won the C2 class in the 1984 24 Hours of Le Mans driving a Lola-Mazda, and two years later placed third overall in a Joest Porsche 956 … Focusing on IMSA’s Camel GT series for many years with the Group 44 Jaguar and Electramotive Nissan teams, he won 11 races including the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1993-94-95, and in 1994 again won his class at Le Mans …His focus in the 21st Century is Vintage and Historic racing from Goodwood to Monterey.
