Ed Pink Racing Engines enjoys more success at the 2013 Monterey Motorsports Reunion and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
EPRE provided the power plants for seven entries at the Motorsports Reunion. These engines varied from a 1916 National Champ Car, to Chevy V-8s to Turbo Porsches and many unique engines in between. Two cars were class winners.
EPRE also provided the engines for two entries at the Pebble Beach Concours.
One was a very special “one owner” first production model 1921 Duesenberg. The Bender body Duesenberg is Number 1 and still owed by the family of the original owner. The Castle family had the car beautifully and accurately restored by Canepa. The Duesie was awarded 2nd in class and the most significant car at the event.
Another entry was Tom Malloy’s 1962 Levosky Sarkes-Tarzian Indy Roadster powered by an Offy engine. The just complete restoration at the Malloy Collection was rewarded with 2nd in class.
