Maserati V8RI Built in 1936
"Poison Lil" led the very first competition lap at Watkins Glen in the 1948 "Junior Prix".
When the founders of the International Motor Racing Research Center were working on the details for the new archival and research facility, they knew they wanted the look and feel of a library, not a museum. But some exhibit space was important, and, foremost, they envisioned space for a race car. Wide double-doors have accommodated the rolling in and out of almost 40 different cars since the Center opened in June 1999. The cars, each with a significant history in motorsports, are displayed for a few months, often complementing a Center Conversations talk or other event. Among the cars the Center has hosted:
David Loring's Denali
Ford GT 40
Gary Balough's Batmobile DIRT Modified
Mark Donohue Sunoco Eagle
Phil Hill's Ferrari
Rusty Wallace's Dodge
Vic Franzese's Can-Am Champagne Car
Walt Hansgen's Jaguar Special
1964 Kuzma Watson
Ford Boss 302R
The original Boss 302R built in 2009 for JBS Racing, Montour Falls, NY.
