99 years of racing

One of the coolest places in Zurich is the Offene Rennbahn Oerlikon. It's an old concrete race track built in 1912 for bicycle racing. Once a year, they use it for show runs with vintage race cars and motorcycles. So they did yesterday. And holy fucking christ, what an amazing event! Watching and hearing those old Maseratis, Bugattis and Jaguars blasting by made the hairs on my arms stand up. What if, I tried to imagine, if they opened the track to a couple of hot rods? Just for a few rounds, fellows. Please, just for a few rounds!


  1. First time commenting. I love your blog; great passion and point of view. What is the late 20s looking car on the left of the 7th pic. I think the photo is 6261s. Hot rod potential, no?

  2. Hi Cory, thank you for your comment. Glad you like my blog. I'm not sure, but I think the car you mentioned is a Maserati race car of the mid 50s. Probably a 250 F.
