Romulus Returns to Siam

 

This clip is taken from DUKE videos film of the return to Thailand of Prince Bira's Famous Romulus, R2B.

 

The video covers some much of the early history of ERA and White Mouse Racing and their many successes in Europe. He never raced the car in his home country, despite it being a national legend

 

50 years later Prince Chula's daughter Narisa Chakrabongse fulfilled her father's dream to see the cars race in Thailand. Fifteen historic racing cars were assembled for the Bangkok Historic Grand Prix, a two-part event held on the original intended circuit through the streets of Bangkok and at the modern Pattaya International circuit.
