The car was created through an exacting eight-year process including an all-new body, resigned interior with custom touches throughout and a brand new, but period correct, competition-based engined.

“We’re excited to welcome such a diverse field of amazing cars to the Montecito Motor Classic this year,” said Dolores Morelli Johnson, founder of the Montecito Motor Classic. “To host these cars on the beautiful grounds of the Santa Barbara Polo & Raquet Club is the cherry on top – and it’s all for a great cause.”

The Montecito Motor Classic will benefit the Santa Barbara Police Activities League; Santa Barbara Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti; and the Santa Barbara Police Foundation, which raises funds for unbudgeted safety equipment and counseling services for first responders dealing with post-traumatic stress issues.

“This event started with a passion for helping the community, cars were just the best way we knew how to do that,” said Michael Armand Hammer, from the event’s presenting sponsor – the Armand Hammer Foundation. “Now in our eighth year, we are again looking to raise $100,000 for Santa Barbara Police Activities League, the Santa Barbara Police Foundation and Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti.”

MOTORSPORTS ICON JESSI COMBS TO BE HONORED WITH TRIBUTE AND SPECIAL EXHIBIT AT THE PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM BEGINNING SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2019

Combs’ family and friends have worked in conjunction with the Petersen to curate a temporary exhibit that will highlight her career as a fabricator, race car driver and television presenter. Exhibit proceeds will benefit The Jessi Combs Foundation, a new organization dedicated to educating, inspiring and empowering the next generation of female trailblazers and stereotype-breakers.

Los Angeles (September 17, 2019) – On Sunday, September 22, 2019, the Petersen Automotive Museum will open a special exhibit, located in the William E. Connor Penthouse, honoring the life and accomplishments of Jessi Combs, also known as “The Fastest Woman on Four Wheels.” Jessi tragically passed on August 27, 2019, while attempting to set a land speed record. Admission to the temporary exhibition is by suggested donation with proceeds benefitting The Jessi Combs Foundation.

The “Jessi Combs: Life at Full Speed” exhibition will feature objects from Combs’ workshop and studio in Long Beach, California. Items on display will include several of her motorcycles, personal notebooks and memorabilia, original Chip Foose drawings from her time on “Overhaulin’,” personal notebooks, welding jackets and racing helmets, as well as various accolades including her Baja and Great Race medals.

“Jessi Combs was an inspiration to the entire automotive community,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “This exhibit is an opportunity to move people, especially the future generation of women builders and enthusiasts, through Jessi’s incredible life story.”

Throughout her life, Combs sought to explore the relationship between women and machine, as a means to continually push and break stereotypical boundaries. As one of the few prominent female fabricators of her era, she endeavored to create programs and safe spaces that encouraged education and dialog about the industrial arts for women. “Jessi Combs: Life at Full Speed” seeks to further that effort, establishing a base for which The Jessi Combs Foundation can grow. The mission of the foundation is to educate, inspire and empower the next generation of female trailblazers and stereotype-breakers. Its guiding principle is the simple question, “What Would Jessi Do?”

“Jessi was the most amazing spirit that I have ever or will ever know,” said Jessi Combs’ boyfriend Terry Madden. “Her appetite for living life on the edge and pursuing her dreams to the fullest is an inspiration to me and all who knew her. The Jessi Combs Foundation will motivate young women who looked up to Jessi, empowering them to uncover their inner confidence and abilities so they, too, can achieve their dreams.”

“Jessi Combs: Life at Full Speed” will run through Wednesday, September 25, 2019, and is free to the general public. Visitors are still required to pay standard general admission prices if they would like to view other Petersen Museum exhibitions. For more information, please visit www.Petersen.org/jessi.

TURNING BACK THE CLOCK TO HONOR MOTORING LEGACY AND STYLE

Goodwood Motor Circuit, September 15, 2019 – As the south of England enjoyed a prolonged summer, the motoring world turned back the clock for the Goodwood Revival this weekend. Racing cars from 1948 to 1966 roared around the 2.38 mile (3.83 km) track to the delight of the drivers behind the wheel and the spectators in the crowded grandstands. The Goodwood Revival is the ultimate time capsule, where the tradition of the automobile and society’s passion for motoring is celebrated. For over 80 years, Rolex has supported motorsport and its drive to continually push boundaries and challenge engineering conventions. Since 2004, the Swiss watch brand has been the Official Timepiece of the Goodwood Revival and the Title Sponsor of the Rolex Drivers’ Club.

“The Goodwood Revival brings together the most spectacular collection of performance cars,” says Sir Jackie Stewart, Rolex Testimonee and three-time FIA Formula 1 Drivers’ World Champion. In the year that the flying Scot celebrates 50 years since he won his first Formula 1® world championship, Sir Jackie continues: “For me personally, it is a fairy tale every time I come back here. This track has played such an important role in my life and the Revival is the best event of its kind in the world. The collection of people who attend come from every corner of the globe, they are great enthusiasts and owners of the most evocative cars. The racing is fantastic and I love the atmosphere – it is three days of absolutely superb motorsport.”

Competitive racing started on Friday evening as 26 of the world’s most expensive cars set off into the sunset for the Kinrara Trophy. Driving a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB/C was fellow Rolex Testimonee and nine-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Tom Kristensen. In an inspired stint, the Danish legend drove supremely, maneuvering the Ferrari carefully through the pack from the midfield to finish fourth. Following a busy weekend, where Kristensen also raced in the St Mary’s Trophy – Part 1 and completed a number of demonstration laps, he reflects on the magic of the Goodwood Revival: “There really is no better place to be on a summer’s day. It is fantastic to be invited by the Duke of Richmond and to get the chance to drive such a variety of beautiful cars. Every time you sit in one of these valuable and well-prepared machines it is an honor and you treat every lap with the utmost respect. The cars tell the rich heritage of motor sport and it is so important to continue to celebrate that. Everyone here plays their part in the theatre that is the Revival – it really is so much more than just about the cars.”

Wheel-to-wheel action across 15 races provided a truly remarkable exhibition of motor racing, while in the paddock and around the estate it was the flocks of immaculately dressed spectators, drivers and mechanics that created an equally unforgettable atmosphere. The attention to detail and the carefully chosen outfits – recreating the fashions of the 1940s, 50s and 60s – ensure that the Goodwood Revival is an annual tradition not to be missed. This year the event paid homage to the iconic British Mini as over 150 cars celebrated the brand’s 60th birthday. Honoring Goodwood’s heritage as a RAF fighter base, historic warbirds took to the skies each morning while the aerodrome hosted a world-class gathering of vintage flying machines.

This evening, as the 22nd edition of the Goodwood Revival drew to a close, the Duke of Richmond announced the winner of the Rolex Driver of the Meeting. The 2019 recipient of the award was Sam Hancock following a display of extraordinary overtakes in multiple races. Delighted with his performance, Hancock says: “This is very special to me, I will cherish this Rolex and enjoy wearing it. To win such a prize is just magical.” Reflecting on the achievement, Sir Jackie remarks: “To be an owner of a Rolex watch is a great privilege, but to wear one because you accomplished something special makes it all the more memorable. In motorsport, you can take great pride in looking back at the incredible people who wore Rolex watches such as Sir Malcolm Campbell, the World Land Speed Record holder in the 1930s. To this day, a Rolex watch represents absolute excellence and dedication.”


ROLEX AND MOTORSPORT
Rolex’s close ties with motor sport date back to Sir Malcolm Campbell’s World Land Speed Record successes in the 1930s, when he became the first driver to break the 300 mph barrier (483 km/h) at the wheel of his car, Bluebird. Since then, Rolex’s presence in motor racing has grown steadily, its support extending to revered endurance events such as the Rolex 24 At DAYTONA, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship. In 2013, Rolex became associated with Formula 1®, the pinnacle of motor sport, having supported Rolex Testimonee Sir Jackie Stewart since 1968. The brand also has a global appreciation for classic car events steeped in elegance, beauty and tradition, including the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and the Goodwood Revival.

PEAK® LAUNCHES NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE EXTENDED LIFE ANTIFREEZE + COOLANT

The new high-performance antifreeze + coolant product has 10 times the scale-fighting inhibitors versus the previous formula, engineered to guarantee superior lifetime protection

(NORTHBROOK, IL, SEPTEMBER 5, 2019) – Old World Industries, a leader in the manufacturing and distribution of high-quality automotive and heavy duty fluids, announced the launch of its new PEAK® Antifreeze + Coolant, designed with an advanced formula that guarantees superior lifetime protection.*†

The introduction of the new PEAK® marks Old World Industries’ first major launch in the extended life antifreeze/coolant segment in more than a decade and is the result of extensive research to understand the Do-It-For-Yourself (DIY) consumers’ needs and purchase decision process.

“Our new PEAK® meets the needs of consumers that desire a high-performance antifreeze/coolant,” said Charles Culverhouse, CEO of Old World Industries. “Our advanced formula guarantees superior lifetime protection, giving consumers peace of mind.”

The new PEAK® Antifreeze + Coolant is specially engineered with an advanced proprietary formula which includes a combination of scale-fighting inhibitors and organic acid corrosion inhibitors that guarantees Superior Lifetime Protection†* against scale and corrosion. Scale can form in the cooling system from poor quality water or from corrosion products forming on surfaces. These deposits can reduce coolant flow in the radiator and other parts of the cooling system, significantly reducing heat transfer and leading to the engine overheating. A build-up of only 1/16-inch of scale can reduce heat transfer by up to 40%.‡ New PEAK® Antifreeze + Coolant contains ten times the scale-fighting inhibitors* and provides more than two times the warranty coverage** for a minimum of 10 years/300,000 miles of maximum cooling system performance.†*

The launch of new PEAK® Antifreeze + Coolant coincides with a recent expansion of PEAK® Original Equipment Technology Antifreeze + Coolant availability, which is now carried in over 30 retailers including AutoZone, Advance Auto and Pep Boys.

New PEAK® Antifreeze + Coolant is designed for use in all North American, Asian and European passenger cars, SUVs, motorcycles and light/medium duty trucks, regardless of make, model or year. Its universal formula is compatible for use with any type of antifreeze/coolant and its amber-yellow color will not change the color of the coolant in the system.

MULLIN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM UNVEILS “LADY OF THE LAKE” INSPIRED ARTWORK

Now on display at the museum, the collage by conceptual artist Heidi Mraz tells the moving story of the 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster

Oxnard, Calif. (September 4, 2019) – On Thursday, August 29, 2019, the Mullin Automotive Museum unveiled a new collage by conceptual artist, visual storyteller and car enthusiast Heidi Mraz. The artwork, titled “Beneath the Surface: Bugatti of Lake Maggiore,” is inspired by the Mullin Collection’s 1925 Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster, nicknamed “Lady of the Lake” after spending nearly 75 years submerged in Lake Maggiore, Italy.

Based in Great Falls, Virginia, Mraz began work on “Beneath the Surface: Bugatti of Lake Maggiore” almost one and a half years ago by researching and gathering ephemera about the car. The piece is compiled of more than 1,500 curated and hand-cut elements that each relates to the car it represents. Mraz painted the canvas background with water-soluble inks, took it to Lake Maggiore and submerged it to let the water wash away part of the painting. The full story of the journey will be featured in Mraz’s upcoming documentary, “Automotive Artifacts.”

“The tale of the ‘Lady of the Lake’ tugs at the heartstrings of anyone who hears it,” said Mullin Automotive Museum Founder and CEO Peter Mullin. “The vehicle is a prime example of painstakingly crafted artwork created by Ettore Bugatti and finished by the likes of Mother Nature. Heidi Mraz interpreted the incredible story, made it her own and turned it into an impressive piece of art which is displayed proudly in the museum.”

After a very successful career in international Grand Prix racing from 1937 – 1939, then-owner A. M. Duprie sent the Type 145 to legendary coachbuilder Henri Chapron to be re-bodied from an open Grand Prix car to a lithe and unique two-seat coupe.

“We’re honored to receive this ‘Best in Class’ award from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance,” said Mullin Automotive Museum Founder Peter Mullin. “Pebble Beach is a flagship event for the entire automotive community and sharing this exquisite vehicle with the public outside of the museum is already a great opportunity.”

Also taking high honors in its class, the 1939 Bugatti Type 57C Aravis took second in the “Bugatti Type 57” class. The Aravis is a unique example, originally made for the legendary French racing driver Maurice Trintingnant. The car’s body by Gangloff and distinctive two-tone paint finish led Jean Bugatti himself to call it “one of the most beautiful Type 57s.”
