A dynamic perspective demonstration created using Processing.

Real-time sound effects were generated using Beads (beadsproject.net)

The First Seat

When Paul Cressey hits the track at Laguna Seca for the Monterey Historic races in his 1959 Peerless GT, he faces plenty of tough competition. For Paul, however, that competition is especially person, including as it does his father, Ron, who is known for running his own 1959 Corvette in the same race. When the two find themselves back at their home garage, it’s thus hardly surprising that the conversation quickly turns to who ran the fastest and most consistent lap times.

Paul grew up in the world of vintage racing and, from a young age, showed an interest in the sport. Where many of his friends drifted away from the tracks as they got older (even as cars were available for them to drive), however, Paul remained keen to take over the first seat of one of the family cars. After many years of waiting, he recently took over that position in the Peerless and this father-and-son duo have been going at each other on the track ever since.
