General Discussion / Information about Robert Priebe and Dick Ecklund
« on: February 08, 2015, 07:05:32 pm »
Hello,

I am looking for all possible information about Robert Priebe and Dick Ecklund.Both of them bought  an Austin Healey that raced Sebring 1960. Dick Ecklund purchased the so called practise car and the car that carried  # 20 driven by Gilbert Geitner and Lew Spencer was purchased by Robert Priebe. Both raced under the banner of Ecurie Pip. It is my intention to create a website for the Austin Healeys that raced Sebring 1960 but as well what happened to the cars after this race.

Maybe someone can help with period pictures and stories. Bob Duell the later owner of the practise car had told me a few things but I am always interested in more.

Many thanks in advance

Harry
