General Note

  • Visitors at Ormond hotel discussed the idea of an auto race on the beach. Alexander Winton had already built and driven a race car called the Bullet while Ranson E. Olds was manufacturing small two seaters and had sold a sightseeing bus in Ormond. Winton agreed to bring his car down and Olds said that he would build a suitable challenger. The two cars met and had identical speeds of 57 mph. It was fine sport and neither claimed victory.
