Time to learn things you never, never knew before about a Bugatti such as power was transferred through a metal-on-metal clutch to a 4-speed manual transmission. Twin chains provided drive to the rear wheels. Depending on the chain sprockets, top speed was somewhere near 100 mph. Not bad for a pre war auto.

Alexander Racing’s Triumph TR4 knows it’s Fathers Day and he’s entering the Blackhawk Raceway in South Beloit, IL from the false grid;  he knows he’ll be racing on  the 1.95 mile, 7 turn road circuit;  but he won’t know where he’ll finish until after the race has been run.
