And just in case you thought you’d seen it all, you won’t want to miss this years’ two feature cars!
1909 Delage Voiturette
The oldest Delage in North America. An original ballot-powered Delage racer was ordered for the “Gold King Races” in western Australia in 1909. This car was designed primarily for 36 hour races in Europe on 20-30 mile lap closed courses. It has a 2.2 liter dry dump engine and a four speed transmission. Top speed is 60 mph.
1913 Bugatti type 22
The oldest production Bugatti in North America and one of the oldest 3 Bugatti’s running in the world. This may be the only “Signature Head” Bugatti on the road in the world. The car was last driven in about 1925 and was stored in Sweden in a closed building since 1955. It was taken out of confinement in 2016 and brought to the US where a 1200 hour restoration was completed by Doug Steele, and Alan Travis. The car has its original overhead cam racing engine that is capable of up to 80 mph and a 4-speed transmission. The car weighs in at 1140 pounds and is a piece of art designed and built by the world’s most recognized automotive artist and engineer.
