Connecticut’s Bob Sharp and Bob Sharp Racing is one of the most
successful stories in American Sports Car Racing, totaling dozens of
victories and 20 national championships.
Starting out while still in college, he was running a gas station
when his association with Datsun started in 1964.
Within a decade he had six national SCCA titles and the 1975 IMSA
GTU championship, dominating the latter.
Moving to owner status, initially with actor Paul Newman, the
successes continued to accumulate.
Drivers Elliott Forbes-Robinson, the late Jim Fitzgerald and his son
Scott were successful in equipment prepared by what eventually
became Newman Sharp Racing.
