Officials Confer at Krug’s Hotel

While newspapers and trade journals criticized the race, it was the entrants who stood in solidarity to put an end to the Vanderbilt Cup Races on Long Island. On October 5th, 12 of the manufacturers met at Krug’s Hotel and appointed a committee to represent their position to the Motor Cups Holding Company officials. On the following day, the committee for the entrants met at the ACA offices in New York to discuss their position with race officials. Hours of debate ensued, but it eventually became clear to everyone that after six years of controversial races, the sport had outgrown the venue. The deaths and injuries of the 1910 race put an end to road racing on Long Island.
