Indy 500 Collection

The first Indy 500 was run at the famous ‘Brickyard’ track in Indianapolis in 1911. The Auto-Archives collection contains almost every program and ticket from the first Post-war race in 1946, up to the present day. That first race in 1911 was won by Ray Harroun in the Marmon Wasp, but sadly we don’t have either the program or ticket from that first race, or in fact most of the races prior to 1942, unless you have some you are willing to donate!

Our ‘Indy’ collection can prove invaluable information for anybody researching the history of the ‘500’, or working on any stories or articles about an event that is considered one of the three events that form the ‘Triple Crown’ of motor racing. At the moment British driver Graham Hill is the only man to have completed the Triple Crown by winning the Indy 500, the Le Mans-24 hours and the Monaco GP F1 race. There is some conjecture that this final part of the triple crown is considered to be the Formula 1 World Drivers title but Hill won that as well, twice, so he is still the only driver to have done so. Unless Fernando Alonso can win the Indy 500 in 2020 with McLaren!

Access to any of our Indy items is available at any time.

More post-1975 Indy 500 items from the Archives will be coming soon.

1:18 Scale models are from the Steven Williams Collection.
