When the hammer went down at the events third instalment in April the final bid came in at $275,000, a win for all involved and more importantly a huge win for the fight against pancreatic cancer.

The Race of Gentlemen 2015
Much like the Goodwood Rivival, The Race of Gentlemen 2015 nostalgically transports us back to the era of balls out drag racing, Hotrods, pinups and individuality. The recently revived Olier’s Car Club played host, the name of the game was racing, having a good time and bringing mayhem to the beach in Willwood, NJ. Not even a looming Hurricane could dampen spirits.
Check out this beautifully captured short edit by: Scott Toepfer and further coverage by AWOL TV of the race of gentlemen 2015.

In a spur of the moment trip to see the outlaws I ended up trudging around a field between Bedford and Rushden in Northampton like a Meerkat surrounding by a mix of ex service vehicles and classic machines. Rushden Calvacade is a celebration of all things vintage machinery from steam engines and tractors to ex-army land rovers and classic british cars.

When you get an invite to go to Goodwood, for me no matter what the event the iconic venue trumps anything already in the diary, especially when it’s The Goodwood 73rd Members Meeting and historic motor racing. I don’t know what it is about the place that makes it feel so special to me, maybe it’s the attention to detail and the preservation of the period look and feel that is everywhere around the place…anyway it’s my favourite motorsport venue in the UK by far.

At District AutoClub we’re all about Vintage and Classic machinery but when a down right badass video pops up on the old interweb consisting of a closed public road, some very fast automotive weaponary and crazy Japanese race pilots – that simply can’t be ignored.
