RACE SUPPORT VEHICLES AND TRANSPORTERS

The unsung heroes of many racing teams has been the support vehicles and transporters which haul gear, crew and cars to and from racing venues. They have been a simple as single axle open trailers towed behind old pickup trucks, to ulti-axle semi trailers which double as mobile workshops, crew quarters and lounges. Presented here is our collection ofthe vehicles that make the racing possible.

PLEASE NOTE: From 1968 into the 1990's tobacco companies sponsored many significant race cars. In the interest of historical accuracy, Old Irish Racing chooses to display models in our collection as historically accurate as possible. While seeing a tobacco advert on a car gives me no more desire to go smoke than seeing a car makes me want to go suck on its exhaust pipe. If tobacco (or alcohol) adverts on race cars offend you, please go look at nice pictures of bunnies and kittens on another site.
