About

The Del Monte Trophy Racing Group

A web site devoted to 1947-1955 sports racing cars from Pebble Beach in the early 1950s, Monterey and similar cars based in Europe.  These are the California road racing specials like Old Yeller II, Baldwin Special, Hageman Jaguar, Streets Manning Special, Tatum Special and Parkinson Jaguar and the  sports racing cars like the Jaguar XK120s, Allards, Aston-Martins, Ferraris, Kurtises, and Maseratis 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 starts 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.
