This great vintage tee commemorates the Camel Grand Prix of Southern California. The first time the Grand Prix, sponsored by Camel cigarettes, was held at the Del Mar Race Track was in 1987. This race was the new, final race in the IMSA GT Championship which was in its 17th season at the time. This was also the first time in nearly two decades that the Del Mar Race Track was being used, but race organizers had their fair share of hurdles to overcome before race day. The Grand Prix was 2 1/2 years in the making with countless public hearings and a shocking four lawsuits filed against the race. Nearby residents were panicked about the "shiftless" racing fans and potential threats they posed to their homes and property. Of course, their fears were unfounded and the Camel Grand Prix continued to be hosted in Del Mar for several more years.
