Posey was a versatile American driver who loved the ambience of Formula 1 and wanted to make a real impact on the Grand Prix scene, but never really had the chance to do so.

He performed capably in Can-Am, Trans-Am and sports cars in the late sixties, and finished fourth at Daytona and Le Mans in 1970, but his real success came in Formula A, Sam challenging David Hobbs and Graham McRae for the championships of 1971 and 1972.

After a brief tilt at USAC, during the course of which he finished fifth at both Indianapolis and Pocono with an Eagle-Offy in 1972, and sixth at Ontario in 1973, Sam raced the Norris Industries Talon in US F5000 in 1974 and briefly in 1976 until his sponsorship dried up.

Thereafter he focused his attentions on IMSA and was a Le Mans regular for many years. Racing a works 3.5-litre BMW CSL, he won the 1975 Sebring 12-hour race with Redman, Stuck and Moffat.

When Sam decided to wind down his racing career he effortlessly took up a TV commentary role which has kept him in touch with the sport.
