HISTORIC RACING

Art has been racing historic cars for over 15 years, driving production racing cars such as Jaguar E-Types; Porsche 356’s; Austin Healey and more. He has also cut his teeth with Formula Cars, ranging from Formula Ford to Formula One, racing marques such as Cooper, Lola, Ralt, Brabham, March, Titan, and Chevron. He has recently begun his next field of racing; historic endurance prototype cars, such as those that ran at Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Daytona. A respected presence on the historic racing circuit and a frequent winner on the track, Art has proven himself a key member of the vintage racing community. His passion for racing, decades of racing experience and distinguished racing record have established him as a respected resource and partner for vintage race car collectors across the country and around the world.

The Motorsports Market team currently races Jaguar E Types as members of the Donovan Motorsports Jaguar Vintage Racing Team, Titan Mk. 6 Formula Fords (often with Geir Ramleth’s ‘Geirheads Racing Team’), a 1999 Martini Picchio SR2, 1977 Chevron Formula Atlantic and a 1988 Chevron B67 Formula Continental.

Lime Rock Labor Day Historics 2019

August 29th – September 2nd 2019 ; The Historic Festival 37 Labor Day Weekend at Lime Rock Park (Lakeville, CT) with the Donovan Motorsports Jaguars.

Art finished third in Saturday’s race, behind Jack in the #61 E type and a 1964 Corvette. However, we got under one minute lap times, for the first time ever in Jaguar E-type #63!

In the second race we got beat by the 1964 Corvette and the 1973 Camaro. We had a great start, but the Camaro, gridded behind, reeled and passed long before we got to turn one. After that Art could catch the Camaro and the Corvette, but didn’t have the power to stay with them on the straightaways. A great race, nonetheless. Jack did an excellent job, bringing the #61 jaguar home first!

Sonoma Speed Festival 2019

Representing Motorsports Market, Art attended the 2019 Sonoma Speed Festival this June, sharing a 1999 Martini Picchio SR2 with fellow driver Andrew Wait. A 3.0 liter sports racer, the Picchio previously raced in the FIA sanctioned Sports Racing World Cup Championship in Europe in 1999 and 2000 at tracks such as Spa, The Nurburgring, Monza, Imola, and Donnington. Supported by Competition Touring Cars (“CTC”) out of Sonoma – headed by Brian Garzelli and with help from Ron, Taylor, and Andrew – the team qualified in 3rd, an impressive spot behind and ahead of much more powerful cars. However, in an unfortunate turn of events the left front axle broke at the end of qualifying, and they were not able to compete.
