Hurley Haywood

4/5/1948

Hurley Haywood is one of the most accomplished race drivers in the World. His list of records and achievements is second to none in motorsports. It would require a book to do justice to Haywood's success; here is a short list: Two-time IMSA GT Champion, TransAm Champion, Supercar Champion, five-time winner of the Daytona 24 hours, three-time winner of the 24 hours of Le Mans, two-time winner of Sebring 12 hour, all-time winner of Endurance Classics: 10 wins at Daytona, Le Mans and Sebring, only driver to repeat as winner of both Daytona and Le Mans in the same year, three-time IROC participant, Florida Sports Hall of Fame, and a lot more.

Hurley Haywood was the first winner of the first IMSA Camel GT race held in Danville, Michigan. Driving with the late Peter Gregg, they won in their nearly stock Porsche 914/6 beating Dave Heinz on his powerful Chevrolet Corvette for the overall. From that moment, their success became quite regular and they were the first Camel GT Champions ever.
