“Bonnie & Clyde Vintage Hot Rod Racing”, was formed by Ken Robinson and Andreas Ullstein, both excessive classic car enthusiasts, who share the passion for authentic vintage Hot Rods. Nevertheless both are fascinated by the mother of all vintage Hot Rod races nowadays and the greatest race on earth called “The Race of Gentlemen” in the USA.
Mel Stultz, founder of that automotive carnival stated once; “The Race of Gentlemen is an automotive carnival that celebrates American racing heritage. A true homage to automobile and motorcycle history, hosted by the Oilers CC/MC. Spectators and racers alike will experience a simpler time of when guys were gentlemen and cars were king! Stultz exhibits a hand-selected group of gentlemen, who showcase their pre-war machines at the water’s edge on the beach of Wildwood, New Jersey. Commonly referred to as TROG for short, the carefully curated event will give you a history lesson and an unforgettable weekend, all rolled into one.”
The team being based in southern Spain has decided, before completing its dream of a participating at ”The Race of Gentlemen”, it will compete in various similar events throughout Europe. Here the scene is substantially smaller, however not less enthusiastic. Vintage Hot Rod racing events can be found in Spain, Italy, Germany, France and England. A part from several trade shows around Europe, the team will participate in the RIVERSIDE crazy car hop in Spain, the PENDINE beach race in the UK, the RÖMÖ Motor Festival in Denmark and in “The Dash” a 1/8 mile sprint in Spain.
The boys love the American racing heritage and “The Race of Gentlemen” is a living breathing celebration of that history filled with action and fun for all! “Period Correct” is what TROG and all other named events are looking for with the Motorcycles, Cars and the entire look and feel of their events.
