Author Talk: The First American Grand Prix

  • Canadian Automotive Museum 99 Simcoe Street South Oshawa, ON, L1H 4G7 Canada (map)

Spectators have been enthralled by car racing since the first automobiles hit the roads. Author Tanya Bailey will take her audience back to the early days racing when pot holes were filled straw and safety went little beyond wearing goggles. Bailey has recently been working with the Canadian Automotive Museum as part of her Master's degree program. Her racing images and anecdotes are both entertaining and relevant for modern car enthusiasts. This talk is not to be missed, so mark you calendar!
