1930 Ford Sprint Car Special news, pictures, specifications, and information

Ever since the creation of the automobile the design and mechanical components have continued to evolve and improve. Fuel sources, engine sizes, suspension, weight distribution, aerodynamics, braking, and more have all been experimented with and undergone rigorous testing and development. It is only suitable that at the local racing circuit, eager individuals were continuing this development in efforts of securing themselves a podium finish. To compete in races during the early years of the automobile, all that was required was a vehicle that could compete. Those who had more money often had more resources at their disposal and could take their vehicle to the next level in terms of power and performance.

At the time, the Ford Flathead V8 was an excellent resource to utilize. Parts were in abundance, power was plentiful, and it was fairly reliable. To fuel the fire, Fred Frame appeared in a 1934 Ford ad declaring 'I picked a Ford V8 for 1933… it brought me home in front. It takes a lot of automobile to average 80.22 miles per hour for 200 miles over a course like that.' Alone, this may not have meant much, but coming from the winner of the 1932 Indianapolis 500, it was a solid endorsement.

Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows Celebrate Silver Anniversary Le Mans Victory At 2014 Amelia Island Concours D'elegance
From their glory days in the 1930s, the all-conquering racers from Mercedes-Benz were known with affection, respect and, occasionally, fear, as the 'Silver Arrows'. The nickname has its roots in a clever solution to a weight restriction mandated by the grand prix rule book. During the 1930s, to save weight and meet the international regulation requiring grand prix cars to race under the maximum weight of 750 Kilograms (1650 lb.), Mercedes-Benz removed Germany's traditional racing white pain...[Read more...]
