Bob Sharp
Driver
Class of 2013

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.
