However if anyone has been a fan of Team Penske since the dawn of racing, then this retro tee will bring a smile. The logo harks back to the early days of the team when Mark Donohue was the star driver and Team Penske was’t the huge thing it is now. Check out the whole Penske apparel selection here.

Other great gifts can be had from Andretti Autosport, Rahal Letterman Lannigan, McLaren SP, and Dale Coyne Racing.

Models of course!

replicNo Indy fan is complete without at least a few models on their shelves and the Racerhead Indycar Gift Guide delivers. Replicarz is your source for 1/43 and 1/18 scale Indy models. A really nice example in 1/18th is this 1940 Indy 500 winner, the Boyle Special. The car won its second Indy 500 win in a row driven by Wilber Shaw. The Boyle Special was actually a Maserati Formula One car repurposed to run in the 500. It seemed to work just fine too! The fact that a foreign manufacturer had its car win the Indy 500 was novel at the time.

Good work in the cockpit area reveals a simulated leather-wrapped steering wheel, legible guages and a shifter right in the middle of the car. An appreciated detail is the heat discoloration on the side exhaust pipe. The faux leather straps on the hood have photoetched buckles and the hood comes off to show the fully wired Maserati engine in all its glory.
