Race of The Century - Who'll Win?

To Find Out, You'll Need to Visit The Collings Foundation
There's a good chance you never heard of the Foundation before, so let's start there. The purpose of The Collings Foundation is to organize and support “living history” events and the preservation, exhibition and interaction of historical artifacts that enable Americans to learn more about their heritage through direct participation. 

The original focus of the Foundation was transportation-related events such as antique car rallies, hill climbs, carriage and sleigh rides, and a winter ice-cutting festival in the Stow, MA area (also the location of the Foundation). 

During the mid-eighties, these activities were broadened to include aviation-related events such as air shows, barnstorming, historical reunions, and joint museum displays on a nationwide level. Exhibits include Classic cars, Aircraft, Military Vehicles, race cars, sports cars and more.
In the first video, Rob Collings, the Foundation's CEO and Chief Pilot, presents his views on the Foundation and the new military vehicle collection.

The Race of the Century
Is one of the Foundation's annual "interactive" event where horses, hybrids, electric cars, vehicles powered by water, flying machines, all pitted up against one another, sometimes against similar styles of race cars.
