The 1911 MARMON ‘WASP’ winner of the first 1911 Indy 500 in 6hrs, 42min & 8sec, with an average speed of 120km/h, is believed to be the first car to utilize a rearview mirror which omitted the engineer in the back looking out for cars. As an artifact that survived in its entirety since its win with only light restoration, it is a testament to the pioneering days of American auto racing.
