South America Off Road Racing

Actually, I do not know if the videos below are of off road racing in South America. I just saw Ecuador in there somewhere. Is your spanish better than mine? Where are these races? No matter where the location, they look like a lot of fun! They remind me of the obstacle races and wheel to wheel races that I used to attend with my parents in the 70′s and 80′s. There is no big suspension travel…just a lot of people out having fun! I see Jeeps, Toyota Land Cruisers, a 66-77 Ford Bronco and even the odd full size truck.

A Diesel Texan Jeep CJ-7 Built In France?

Get this. A diesel powered Jeep CJ-7 built in France and called the Texan. I guess it makes sense, since Renault owned Jeep for a while. In fact, I would love to drive a Jeep CJ7 powered by the 2.0 litre Renault diesel. Notice how the turn signals on the fender have been replaced with english 4 wheel drive badges. What do you think about the whole Texan Jeep that was available in France?

More 70′s Ray Russell Off Road Race Jeep Photos!

Last Jauary, we posted some photos that Kevin Vaughan sent us of the 1972 Jeep CJ-5 that his uncle used to desert race in the 70′s. After seeing the interest and discussion that the Jeep off road racer Ray Russell photos and article created here and here, he decided to send me some of the photos of Ray that his uncle had in his photo album. Two of the photos are from the 1976 SNORE 250 while the other two are from the 1976 WRA 300. Note that the WRA 300 photos must be of Ray and his co-driver prerunning as they are not wearing helmets. Also note that these photos are from before Goodyear sponsored Ray Russell. He is running Cooper tires. Do you have any more photos of Ray Russell or off road desert racers from the 70′s?
