Exoto #: Exo00001

The Vanderbilt Cup was the first major trophy in American auto racing. An international event, it was founded by William Kissam Vanderbilt II in 1904 and first held at a course set out on Long Island, New York and ran until the United States joined the Allies in World War I in 1917.
The Vanderbilt Cup was not held again until 1936 when William Kissam Vanderbilt II's nephew, George Washington Vanderbilt III, picked up the cause and sponsored a 300-mile race at the new facilities at Roosevelt Raceway. Once again, the Europeans were enticed by the substantial prize money and Scuderia Ferrari entered three Alfa Romeo racers. The enormous distance Ferrari travelled was proven worthwhile when Tazio Nuvolari took the win in his Alfa Romeo 12C!
