Dr. Simeone discussed why It’s not always the biggest engine or the fastest car that wins the race. Certain cars, because of their maneuverability and balance in road races regularly beat the bigger models. The 1913 Mercer Raceabout, 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS, 1934 MG K3 Magnette, and the 1954 Austin Healey 100-4 BN1 were four examples that did surprisingly well against their larger competition.
