Video: Watch Turbo Tom’s Datsun 510 Take on Road Atlanta

https://www.youtube.com/embed/FFLNWoy593U

Turbo Tom Wyatt’s Datsuns were notorious for punching well above their weight–sadly, though, we lost Turbo Tom in 2005. This 8mm footage from one of his Road Atlanta test days comes from way, way back in the day and features in-car action, too.

Also, any guesses as to when this was shot? Mid '80s? Earlier? '70s?

Anyone know/remember when the Turn 1 bridge was built?

I see a coke logo on the bridge, which was prior to Emilio Estevez hitting it, certainly. I'm thinking more like late '70s.

You know, I think our 2009 was better than Emilio's.
