The Del Monte Trophy Racing Group
Our web site is devoted to 1947-1955 sports racing cars from Pebble Beach and Monterey in the early 1950s, and similar cars based in Europe. These are the California road racing specials like Old Yeller II, Baldwin Specials, Hageman Jaguar, Manning Specials, Tatum Special and Parkinson Jaguar and the sports racing cars like the Jaguar XK120s, Allards, Aston-Martins, Ferraris, Kurtises, Maseratis and Mercedes who raced with them.
The site is also a home for a registry of cars in the Del Monte Trophy Group, not just the racers but concours cars also. As of September 2017 the list started with those with images on the Cars page; click on an image for further details.
Alongside is our logo for 2017. The new one at the top is by the delightful motorsport artist David Gentry at GentryArts http://gentryarts.com/. Thank you.
We enjoy warm relationships with other groups involved in cars of this period; do have a look at the following websites if your interest has been stimulated…
