This all-American racer was the final winning car built for the US team in Dorset. It wasn’t the most successful Penske, but its explosive acceleration still exhilaratesBy Andrew Frankel It takes time for certain cars to assume their place in history.

Opel 1

M. N. Mavrogordato's significantly-original 1914 GP car There is perhaps nothing more exciting and satisfying in the old-car firmament than a racing car from the glorious, glamorous, and now far-distant world of pre-Kaiser-War road-racing.

Even if this event is more a gigantic driving-test (even to penalties for touching markers) than the sort of speed trial we used to know, it is fun to drive in, and the heat wave last month brought a good number of onlookers as well as competitors.
