Film “The Long Island Vanderbilt Cup Races (1904-1937)”

As noted below, I will be presenting three lectures this month on the Vanderbilt Cup Races and the Long Island Motor Parkway. In preparation for my presentation at the "Racing on Long Island: Horses to Horsepower" conference, I have prepared this 10-minute compilation of small films and newsclips.

The film features two William K. Vanderbilt, Jr. Cup Races (1904 and 1906) and the two George Vanderbilt Cup Races (1936 and 1937).

Feedback request: If you are would like to see space at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum dedicated to Long Island auto racing and the Long Island Motor Parkway, please leave a comment at this link. Thanks!

This is super footage!  Love racing, but didn’t know much about these races. My congratulations to you on such a great job with the film!
