Newest is Very Old

The newest car on the floor of the North East Motor Sports Museum is very old. Built in England in 1932, this J2 MG is owned by Peter and Rachael Ross of Bolton, MA. It was originally raced the year it was built as a factory car driven by Archie Langley and Jack Bastock. It raced at some of Europe's most storied tracks. In 1934 the car was imported to the US by Sam Collier where it was raced in ARCA (the precursor to the SCCA) by Tom Dewart at Briarcliff, Sleepy Hollow and Alexandria Bay. The car competed in some of the very first SCCA races, having raced from '51-57 in SCCA competition including at Thompson Speedway. The car was acquired by Peter Ross in 2012 who has raced it on New England tracks. It has been magnificently restored.
