IROC - International Race of Champions - 1974

IROC - International Race of Champions - 1974

The late Mark Donohue won three of the four events in IROC 1, a series contested on road courses in Porsche Carrera RSR cars. Emerson Fittipaldi was the fastest qualifier for the first race at Riverside, but he and George Follmer had to start from the rear of the field after missing a mandatory pre-race drivers' meeting. Donohue led from start-to-finish while Follmer charged from last to fourth place. In Race 2, Follmer came from ninth on the grid to win, as Donohue retired early. In Race 3, Donohue started on the pole and led all the way, as Follmer went from 12th to fifth. The field was then cut in half, with the top six points leaders from the first three events qualifying for the finale at Daytona. Again, it was a Donohue-Follmer battle, until Follmer spun. That victory was Donohue's last, as he then retired as an active driver, only to return to competition later that year. Donohue was killed the following season after a Formula One practice accident.
