1954 SCCA Nationals Move to Bremerton
After the terrific success of the 1953 SCCA Nationals at Paine Field, the 1954, 1955 and 1956 editions were moved to Bremerton. The airport there could better handle the spectator Load.
It was another terrific weekend drawing from all over the West Coast. For more photos, a full account of the SCCA Nationals and other 1964 (sic) events, see Martin Rudow's book, Long Straights and Hairpin Turns.
