Eastern Museum of Motor Racing Trip in October
The International Motor Racing Research Center is organizing a bus trip to the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing in York Springs, Pa., on Saturday, Oct. 21.
The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing is noted for its unique displays of legendary race memorabilia. Midgets from every era and cars from dirt track and drag racing are on display. A Bonneville Salt Flats car is also displayed.
Opening in 1975, the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing was the first museum dedicated to open-wheeled racing in the Northeast. It is located on a restored 40-acre fairground and race track and is an all-volunteer operation.
“I had heard lots of great things about this place and finally had the chance in June to visit. It is simply amazing!” Kip Zeiter, coordinator of visitor services and outreach for the Racing Research Center, said. Zeiter organized a memorable trip to the New York International Auto Show in April.
“The museum is full of fabulous cars, artifacts and memorabilia from many different eras, and the staff is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They share a love for the place, which becomes infectious. It’s definitely the best car museum I’ve ever visited,” Zeiter said. “Join us and see for yourself.”
The museum is opening on Oct. 21 specifically for the Center’s visit. Museum guides will be available through the day.
The bus trip will cost $90 for 2017 IMRRC members. The cost for non-members will be $115. Seating is limited.
The price covers round-trip transportation on Swarthout Coaches and a donation to the museum for admission. The bus will pick up passengers at 7 a.m. in Horseheads, N.Y. Breakfast and dinner stops are planned.
