  • Studebaker in New York to Paris World Race 2011

    On Thursday, March 17, 2011 six automobiles left Times Square at 7:00 AM marking the start of the World Race from New York to Paris. The first leg of the race ended in Buffalo, New York on Thursday night at the Pierce Arrow Museum. As reported in the Buffalo News, only one car had mechanical problems. Tom Jameson, of Charleston, SC, who is driving a support vehicle, stated that a hose came loose just two blocks before the Museum in Buffalo. That honor was bestowed on a red 1916 Studebaker racing car. Further exploits of the recreation of the original 1908 race can be found at worldrace.net once the web site is completed. As the cars head west, perhaps other Forum members can keep us advised as to the progress of the Studebaker.
