Four days of four-cylinder fun will happen when the 2013 International Speedsters Trials and Reunion roars into Speedway Motors and the Museum of American Speed in Lincoln, Nebraska, June 19-22.
The biennial Speedsters Reunion celebrates the heritage and excitement of vintage speedsters, those basic one- and two-seat roadsters typically powered by pre-1935 side-valve Ford four-cylinder engines. These simple and affordable machines were the first “everyman” racecars, often featuring hand-crafted bodies and the earliest forms of aftermarket speed parts. Though speedsters are often built using Model T and Model A engines and frames, the Speedsters Reunion welcomes all early four-cylinder-powered cars, regardless of manufacturer or current body style.
Much more than a static car show, the reunion will feature many driving events, including a road tour of approximately 135 miles and an exciting old-fashioned hill climb. Participants will also have a chance to test their cars on a chassis dyno, attend one of several technical presentations and tour the expansive Museum of American Speed, which features hundreds of Model T and Model A engines and countless vintage speed parts. There will also be a ceremony to recognize and induct new members into the Model T Ford Club of America Speedster and Racer Hall of Fame.
