Helmit Dragster Riviara

Over the winter of 1962-63 the car got a face lift - body & paint - and Ivo
was ready to tour the US and Canada where the car was seen more than any other
for two years. Tommy Ivo played a major role in drag racing’s formative years. He
set the early standard for showmanship in drag racing. A fierce and skilled competitor,
Ivo focused his career not on sanctioned series, but upon the mainstay of the era –
one-on-one challenges with the sports biggest names. He went on to become one of the
most popular and successful match racers in history. For these accomplishments and
more Ivo was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in August of 2005.
