Seneca Cup. Watkins Glen, 1951.

I absolutely adore seeing little Cooper and Effyh 500s mixing it up with big Chrysler-Allards and Jags and Ferrari coupes in this brilliant footage from the 1951 Seneca Cup event at the Watkins Glen road races. Watch how that exhaust smoke just poured out of George Weaver’s Maserati when he got on the gas out of each turn with Fitch’s Ferrari nipping at his heels. Brilliant.

From the old Speedvision’s Victory Circle. Oh Speedvision, how I miss you.

Thanks to Michele Orsi Bandini for pointing me to it.
