The International Motor Racing Research Center and the International Motor Sports History Section of the Society of Automotive Historians partner annually to sponsor a multi-day symposium focused on international motor racing history. The symposium provides an opportunity for researchers to present their work on automotive competition history. Papers are presented by faculty members, graduate students and independent researchers.
The history of international automotive competition falls within several realms, all of which are welcomed as topics for presentations, including, but not limited to: sports history, cultural studies, public history, political history, the history of technology, sports geography and gender studies, as well as archival studies.
Collecting, Preserving and Sharing History
The International Motor Racing Research Center collects, shares and preserves the history of motorsports through books, photos, films, posters, periodicals, and art. Spanning continents, eras and race series, the Center’s collection embodies the speed, drama and camaraderie of amateur and professional motor racing throughout the world. The Center welcomes serious researchers and the casual fans alike to share stories of race drivers, race series, and race cars captured on our shelves and walls, and brought to life through a regular calendar of public lectures and special events.
The International Motor Racing Research Center is part of the Points of Inspiration Science & Technology Trail. For more information and stops on the trail, visit www.pointsofinspiration.net.
