A few clips showing Hudsons racing in Mexico. From a German Mercedes viewpoint.

    That's cool to see footage of a 4 door racing. I've seen pictures of 4 doors being run, but not video.

    Looks like a Hornet coupe took a tumble off the road at 2:25. Interesting racing footage and thanks for sharing!  By the way, the propeller airliner seen at the beginning is a KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines, Convair 240, registered PH-TEF, titled "Frans Hals" and was delivered to the airline on November 4, 1948.  After its use with KLM this Convairliner would later see service with airlines such as Ozark and Mohawk Airlines in the U.S.  It was withdrawn from use and last reported stored at Opa Locka, Florida in 1977.  Probably scrapped since then.
