MotoRacing was started by Gus Vignolle and Maury Powell, and Gus always presented his unique view of the sports car racing world. MotoRacing was never dull!
was published in Los Angeles, and its primary focus was on Southern California

As drivers like Phil Hill, Dan Gurney, and Richie Ginther started racing internationally, MotoRacing went along with them. Writers such as Henry Manney III filed reports from around the world.
MotoRacing Index Page
In addition to the page scans, an index has been created so that you can find what you're looking for on the DVD. The index is also in Adobe Acrobat form, and has bookmarks so you can jump directly to the index topic of interest.
In the early days of MotoRacing the detailed race results were printed, including car numbers, all finishers, as well as the reasons for cars not finishing. This detail was reduced in later years, but the results will still be useful. All the available results are saved as JPEG files saved by race track and date in separate folders.
The free Adobe Acrobat reader is available from www.adobe.com if you don't have it already. The Adobe Acrobat reader is available for a wide variety of computer platforms. These scans have been checked on Windows and Macintosh, but should work on Linux and other systems as well.
We at Vintage SportsCar Photos want to offer our sincere thanks and appreciations to Bob for his dedication to this project. As some of you know Bob passed on a few years after he completed this project. I know he was very proud of it and, per his wife, wanted me to continue offering it as the great historical tool it is.
