Early road racing at its best, celebrating early road racing in the so-called Brass Era was the theme for this Demo Day which included a rare Lozier car, demonstrating the spectacular 1907 Vanderbilt Renault racer, and running some of our favorites from the dawn of competitive history. The Demo Day included a new Car Tech sessions with the Museum’s Curator and Director of Education which started at 11:00. Featured Cars were the 1913 Mercer Raceabout, 1916 Stutz 4C Bearcat, 1907 Renault 35/45 Vanderbilt racer, and the guest car, the 1911 Lozier.
