1950s Stock Car Racing in a Bentley?

That is right. I do like crazy Bentley drivers.

Imagine in 1954 taking this Bentley 6 1/2 Litre down do the stock car oval for a bit of a mad no holds barred race.



Not really the sport expected of a vintage Bentley. True madness with a steel exoskeleton for protection.

That is exactly what Alex Landborough did at the 'Vue on August 11th 1954.

And this is how stock car racing looked in the 1950s.



Not really a way to treat a Bentley.

Thanks to Oldstox.com for the photo.
