I am elated to have acquired such a monumental piece relating to one of the most adored men in American sports and cultural history. The fact that the item had not previously been located only added to my interest on behalf of our client. The 1934 Tour of Japan remains to date one of the most fabled of it's type in sports history
On paper the Birmingham event was our worst showing of the season. But it showed the true character of the team that we stayed with it and had a good race car for Robert in Round 10. Electrical problems are the most frustrating to deal with because they're so hard to find. It's not like a suspension problem, that's relatively easy to diagnose.
[Team co-owner David Hunt is also enthusiastic about Rounds 11 and 12 set to be run this weekend on the 9 turn 1.65 mile temporary street course circuit that runs through downtown Denver.] I've got high hopes for Denver, ... Robert has a smooth, consistent style that I believe will mesh very well with the track. Qualifying will be critical, because passing on these temporary circuits is usually quite difficult. Electrical problems bit us during qualifying at Birmingham. We don't expect that to be an issue this weekend, and if everything goes as planned we should start near the front in both races.
