Vintage Race Car Crashes
Around 4-minutes of the most insane vintage race crashes. We like to think
that everyone walked away with their lives and most of their limbs.
2000 Webster City Vintage Reunion
Here are some photos I took at the 2000 Webster City Vintage Reunion. This
is an annual national open vintage dirt track event ran at the historic
Hamilton County Speedway located in Webster City, Iowa.
"Brutus" race car - 750hp 46L V12 1908
"Brutus" from Germany at Concours d'élégance Paleis Het Loo, Apeldoorn,
An extraordinary vehicle that was constructed in the Auto & Technik MUSEUM
SINSHEIM's workshops under the project name "Brutus", is - like the Maybach
special racing car - also following the tradition of the Blitzen-Benz.
After WW I many aircraft engines were available since Germany was not
allowed to own aircraft. These engines were installed on old undercarriages
and used to perform races. An undercarriage with chaindrive of 1908 was
being used as a basis for the "Brutus" project. A 12-cylinder aircraft
engine with 46 liters displacement and a constant performance of 500 hp at
1500 rpm or 750 hp at 1700 rpm, that was located in Spain by our club
member Hans Dittes, was mounted on top. The attraction of this vehicle is
not least due to the fact that it is going to reach a speed of far beyond
100 km/h at about 800 rpm only. After several years of hard work the
vehicle was completed. It already was presented in action at many events.
Vintage Racing Crash Roll cages are good
This is Mark with Zapata in second place of the last race at Roebling Road.
Listen close and you can hear his rear axle snap. At that point he can't
do anything but hold on. Mark is fine. This is a good reason to over
build safety into any racecar.
