History of Motor Racing Documentary


This is one of the first videos I ever featured with firstsuperspeedway.com, but I thought I would bring up again. This is part of terrific documentary on the history of motor racing. Excellent footage dating back to 1902.

The entire documentary is available on YouTube in 16 parts, taking the viewer from the turn of the 20th Century up into the 1950's. Outstanding work I hope is preserved forever. All this material has a heavy European emphasis, but there are some nice pieces on the Indianapolis 500.
