Stutz Bearcat

This car competed in two of the handicap races at the VSCC's Hawthorn Memorial Trophies Race Meeting at Oulton Park in June 2008.
It's Mike Holt's 6 litre 1918 Stutz Bearcat. The Bearcat was the first American car to be regarded as a racing car, one competing in the first Indianapolis 500 mile race in 1911, and you can read the story of Stutz here.
Here's Mike Holt at Britten's chicane during the first of his races that day.
