MG, Porsche, and Triumph with the Zapata team at VIR Vintage
I was invited to go to the historic races in June at VIR by members of the Zapata Racing team out of Nashville TN. Being a car guy it was incredible. Cars you should only see in a museum are on the track doing exactly what they are designed to do....RACE.
It is amazing. If you have the means, you must go to one of these races.
The Loudest Bugeye Sprite in Vintage Racing?
Video from three races of my poor little 1959 Sprite that was wrongfully
accused of being "too loud" and cost me a 1st place finish at Blackhawk
Farms Raceway with the VSCDA. Take a listen and you be the judge. Warning:
I have been told this little 1275cc car is capable of deafening mere
Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing
company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW. The
marque had its origins in 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of
Nuremberg initiated S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from
Europe and selling them with his own trade-name in London. The trade-name
became "Triumph" the year next, and in 1887 Bettmann was joined by a
partner, Moritz (Maurice) Schulte, also from Germany. Beginning in 1889 the
businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England.
In November 1944 what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph
trade-name were bought by the Standard Motor Company and a subsidiary
"Triumph Motor Company (1945) Limited" was formed with production
transferred to Standard's factory at Canley, on the outskirts of Coventry.
The pre-war Triumph models were not revived and in 1946 a new range of
Triumphs was announced, starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster
had an aluminium body because steel was in short supply and surplus
aluminium from aircraft production was plentiful.
In the early 1950s it was decided to use the Triumph name for sporting cars
and the Standard name for saloons and in 1953 the Triumph TR2 was
initiated, the first of a series that would be produced until 1981.
