The majority of people from the two most-recent generations, if faced with the name Larz Anderson, probably don’t know who he was or care to find out. The name “Larz” might sound strange, but doesn’t do it enough for me to want to look him up. Larz Anderson, however, is a name worth looking up.

A wealthy Boston businessman who once served as a U.S. diplomat, Larz and his socialite wife took an interest in the early state of the automobile, and after purchasing cars as early as 1899, their vehicular holdings eventually became known as “America’s Oldest Car Collection.” Among the many motorcars purchased by the family over the years was a 1903 Gardner-Serpollet.

The British Grand Prix, which took place this past weekend, is one of the most viewed races on the Formula 1 calendar. Many fantastic moments in racing have occurred at the Silverstone Circuit.

One of the somewhat lesser-known but most-spectacular victories at the British GP was during the 1979 race, in which the Williams F1 team won their first competition, and at home, no less.
