My Formula 5000
Peter Rehl has been a formula car driver ever since he began
competing with the SCCA in 1965. The Easton, Conn, resident has
driven nothing but Cooper cars throughout his career, making him a
unique driver in the Continental. In 1968, he took his Formula B
Cooper to a class win in the professional Thompson Grand Prix. In
1969, Rehl took late delivery of a brand new Cooper T-90 Chevrolet
and spent the rest of the season sorting the machine out. Despite the
problems with the car, Rehl qualified for the ARRC runoffs at Daytona
by winning two of the three National events he entered. At the runoffs,
Rehl drove a flawless race taking the Formula A title on the last lap
when Fred Corbett spun his Eagle-Chevrolet. Rehl, will use the Cooper
this year to challenge for the Continental title.
