1987 SVRA Driver of the Year: James (Jim) Williams


Jim Williams – Walhalla, SC

“I began vintage racing with the 1985 Walter Mitty. Since then I have run in 23 Mitty’s and most of the SVRA and HSR events. I was named the SVRA ‘Driver of the Year’ in 1987; the 1991 HSR ‘Driver of the Year’ and received the 1995 Bob Fergus ‘Big Fun Award’ and the HSR ‘Spirit Award.’ I am perhaps best known for my 1957 Green Lotus Eleven #85 and my open car trailer, which doubled as a rocking chair porch and hangout for fun and foolishness. Both are retired now and I continue to enjoy vintage racing in my “Little Red” 1959 Seblmg Sprite.”
