Welcome Fellow Automotive Enthusiasts
If you live in Orange County, California and enjoy Vintage racing events, driving or touring in your vintage sports car/hot rod/classic car, Concours d’Elegance, car shows, cruising, or impromptu events and gatherings and of course Bench-Racing, then www.bench-racing.com is your source for the latest NEWS & EVENTS.
We founded The January 1st “Tour d’Orange” New Year's Day drive in 2002 & Bench-Racing editor Charles was involved with the Newport Beach Concours d'Elegance for 24 years. We are no longer associated with those events but in November we organize the Carrera California, a two day driving event in the spirit of the great open road races of the 50’s.
Visit our ONLINE STORE where you will find Vintage and Classic style AM FM iPod/MP3 ready shaft style radios, exclusive hidden audio systems starting at just $59 and speaker upgrades for your Classic Sports Car, Collectable and Muscle car. We also carry both CTEK and NOCO Genius battery chargers, the preferred charger for Classic & Collector Cars. We are also a Hirschmann Antenna dealer. You will benefit from Woody’s Custom Shop’s 30+ years of experience in this field.
