We have been writing CAR REVIEWS for several years via and just recently added video to augment our written BOOK REVIEWS. Videos are posted within the written reviews on this site as well as YouTube.

One popular video excursion involves the 1915 Venice Grand Prix. Recorded live at Ultimatte Studios in Chatsworth then repeated at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

See our latest video about the FIVE Southern California Big Speedways!

We've also shot some video with both Adam Carolla and Jay Leno in regards to Where They Raced. There's a bit of shtick involved but they are a couple of genuine car guys. Video links are under APPEARANCES.

HO features photos, data, and other information about the auto racing history of Southern California. Harold Osmer has written three books on the subject and each are available through the Where They Raced, Real Road Racing, and Saugus Speedway buttons at your left.

We have sponsored cars at Ascot, produced the program for USAC's Turkey Night Grand Prix since 2001, announced the 2012 & 2013 SCTA Bonneville Speed Weeks, had a weekly radio show LIVE from Irwindale Speedway and fielded two cars at the 24 Hours of Lemons (check the link for photos and video). Yeah, we've been around.

There are thousands of photos in our files and are always looking for more. Now we have a dvd of Where They Raced. This thing never ends...
