The Simplex Zip Revisited

The Simplex Zip is no stranger here on these pages as it is one of our favorite racing cars, along with it also being one of Peter Helck’s favorites. This is the earliest photo of it I have seen and the only one with the stub exhausts. We also included Helck’s typed capt-ion of the photo, were he tells us about the Zips success with 1908 Vanderbilt Cup Race winner George Robinson at the wheel.  This Simplex photo is quite clear so take the time to check the enlargements to see all of its details.
