Bira ERAs meet in Bangkok
“Romulus”, the famous ERA racing car (Chassis R2B) which was campaigned by the late Prince Bira of Thailand from 1935 until the war, has been flown out of the United Kingdom by Thai Airways International for a visit to its original driver’s homeland.
This is not its first such trip. “Romulus” visited Thailand (or Siam as it was called then) in the winter of 1937-38 when the present king was only ten years old. On January 9, “Romulus” will be accompanying other Prince Bira ERAs (“Remus” and “Hanuman”) for a speed trial around the city of Bangkok. Then on January 16 it will be taking part in two races at the Pattaya track, renamed the Prince Bira Circuit.
