The International Motor Racing Research Center was created with the mission to preserve and share the materials from racing history, from all race series and all race tracks worldwide.
The IMRRC adheres to professional archival standards in caring for the hundreds of thousands of items in our collections. Whether a piece of rare fine art or an autographed book, a press kit or a home movie, a prize-winning photograph or a ticket stub from a race last season, each item is treated with the utmost care as it is cataloged and located in a secure, climate-controlled environment.
The IMRRC operates as a library, with every item in the collections available for public inspection and use, though limited to on-site.
The staff is committed to digitizing images, and many complete collections have been scanned. A project to convert 8 mm, 16 mm and VHS film to DVD format also is underway.
