Dario Resta and Peugeot

Dario Resta working on his Peugeot racer in 1916. This was the zenith of Resta's career. He won the Indianapolis 500 (actually, that was only "500" that was only scheduled to be 300 miles) as well as the first national championship awarded on points. He won races at Sheepshead Bay, Chicago, Cincinnati and the Vanderbilt Cup road race in Santa Monica.
