TheVRL News Brief

Team Penske restores iconic 'Blue Hilton' transporter

After an exhaustive restoration process, Team Penske has unveiled one of the most unique pieces of its history, a customized 1972 International Fleetstar truck known in the racing circles as "The Blue Hilton." The truck was one of the first known enclosed transporters used for racing purposes. It served the team in various capacities from 1972-‘83. The restoration is complete down to the smallest detail, including authentic PPG paint and hand lettering just in time for Roger Penske's 80th birthday. An iconic part of team history, the Blue Hilton transported the No. 66 McLaren that Mark Donohue drove to victory in the 1972 Indianapolis 500 — the first of Team Penske's record 16 wins in the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing."

SVRA announces vintage racing national championship

The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association recently announced that for the first time it will offer season-long championships for both their short sprint races and their endurance contests of a set distance or timed competition of up to 90 minutes in duration. Previously, the season-long SVRA points championship has been centered in the eastern United States. "This is clearly another example of how the SVRA has expanded into a national platform," said Tony Parella, SVRA president and CEO. "We're proud to be the first and only vintage racing organization to make this kind of recognition for our drivers and car owners possible."

Formula One cars have evolved again and again in the decades since the first championship race in 1950 — and the sport's engineers have never failed to give fans beautiful machinery. Innovations, rule changes, safety advances — all have had their impact on the look of the cars throughout history. Here, Sean Gibson ranks the 20 most handsome designs ever conceived by F1 teams in their pursuit of speed.

Highlights at 2017 Bonhams Amelia Island

The 2017 Bonhams Amelia Island auction will be held March 9 at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club on Amelia Island, Florida. Entries at Bonhams’ 3rd annual sale held during the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Week include an alloy-bodied 1955 Ferrari 250 GT Europa, 1927 Bentley 4 1/2-Liter Tourer and 1954 Arnolt-Bristol Roadster Prototype, among others.

The FIA decides it's the fun police, wants WRC drivers to slow down

The 2017 season of the World Rally Championship kicked off last month, and despite rough conditions, the new cars proved to be incredibly fast. Possibly too fast. You might not think that's possible in racing, but the FIA thinks it is. And it's considering changing the rules to force drivers to slow down. Speaking to Motorsport, FIA rally director Jarmo Mahonen said he doesn't want to see average speeds exceed 80 mph. But earlier this month during Rally Sweden, some drivers' average speeds were well above that. This caused the FIA to cancel stage 12 of that race.
