Old 16 at the 1952 Bridgehampton Road Race

To help promote the 1952 Bridgehampton Road Race, owner Peter Helck and his son Jerry Helck brought Old 16, the winner of the 1908 Vanderbilt Cup Race, to the course.

Joe Tracy, who drove in the 1904, 1905 and 1906 Vanderbilt Cup Races, can be seen in the driver's seat. Peter Helck is standing to the right of the Locomobile wearing his trademark beret. This previously unpublished photo was provided by Jerry Helck, who can be seen standing to the left of Tracy.
