May 13-14 Brighton Beach 24 Hour Race

A pair of images from the May 1910 Brighton Beach 24 hour event which we have covered earlier, this time showing action in the pits. Above is the Buick pit which back in the time sometimes referred to as the camp, because that is what it actually was, a place were the crew camped out. Note the pit crew operated jack in the foreground for fast tire changes.

Below is the Rainier pit with Lou Disbrow’s car in for service which is surrounded by spectators. Photos from the Peter Helck Collection, courtesy of Racemaker Press.
