The attached articles are a nice discovery in that they are first-hand accounts of the development and testing of the first car to win the Indianapolis 500, the Marmon Wasp.
This image was published in the March 20, 1910 Indianapolis Star and ran in support of a couple of articles that discussed the then-new and revolutionary Marmon Wasp's design.
I reached a milestone in my archive of primary research on the 1905 James Gordon Bennett Cup auto race. What I can offer now is not only the world's largest archive of primary research on this event, but a synopsis to help you understand the value of each 1905 newspaper article in the collection. Check it out.
