    Owner of Brumos Porsche dies

    Although I never had the pleasure to personally meet Bob, I have followed the success of Brumos Racing for as long as I can remember -- from the Peter Perfect days. I did have the extreme pleasure of touring his private car museum which without a doubt was the most impressive private museum I've ever seen.

    Coincidentally, the June issue of Winding Road has an article on Brumos Racing and the involvement of Snodgrass in the Rolex Racing Series.

    Hmmm, I've been seeing that fellow my whole life as I stopped in the dealership for this or that, and at Daytona 24 every year hanging around his amazing car collection. Never even heard he had died until just now. Sad. One heck of a monster dealership facility and racing team he built up though.

    thrill of a lifetime

    I got a ride with Bob at the Daytona 24 four years ago. In the 54 Spyder during the historic car 24 minuets of Daytona. He requested we start last. Little did I know that his intent was to be able to charge the field without fear of damaging the car. We came off the bus stop and up on turn three inches away from the wall. I felt a tap on my knee looked over and Bob was driving with one hand pointing at the tach looking at me to let me know we were at top speed. I think about 150. Oh! and when we were about to start he said ' you should have a full face helment on to late now'. Well as you know the Spyder has only a small wind screen for the driver. We completed about 15 laps and my face looked like you would expect, sand blasted black!!
    What a ride!!!!!
    I considered Bob a good friend he always welcomed me in the pit. He is missed at Brumos and in Jacksonville.
