Photography by Johannes Huwe

The scene afforded by its Wildwood, New Jersey location and home-grown hot rod culture has quickly catapulted The Race Of Gentlemen into a can’t miss event.

This year’s was no exception, and luckily for us, German photographer Johannes Huwe was on hand to immortalize the 2015 event. These gorgeous shots are part of his new hardcover book, The Race Of Gentlemen, surely one of the most engaging titles we’ve seen on the event.

Guitar Slinger, you may be a native, but you are mistaken. Wildwood has an Auto Racing history dating back to the earliest days of the automobile. They held Beach racing (admittedly in an oval format, around barrels, rather than 1/8th mile drag races like TROG) back in 1910-1911. And again in 1926. They also had a race course on the street in North Wildwood in 1911. You can find vintage postcards with images from this early racing.

An entire book should be devoted to the race starter. If you are interested in guys with beards, have at it.

Not to mention the fact that Wildwood in its entire history never had any form of motor racing on its beaches and in fact banned all motor vehicles from its sands… Read more »
