For petrolheads

Speed, craze, victories and defeats – we have reached the thrilling world of motorsports. 

The heat of unremitting speed, victories and losses bring us to the exciting world of car and motorcycle sports. Part of it already begins behind the museum building walls with the proximity to the legendary Biķernieku track, whose bends and straight stretches visitors can explore through a virtual drive.

The exposition presents the diversity of this dynamic sport. A 1935 Monte Carlo rally participant - the Amilcar automobile, speaks of endurance, while the Latvian constructed OSCar reminds us of the considerably later Latvian adventures in the Paris - Dakar Rally.

The 1930s mountain-racing automobile Auto Union V16 occupies a special place in the Museum exposition. It symbolizes the great "Silver Arrow" era in the history of global automotive industry and at one point provided a strong impetus for the creation of the Riga Motor Museum.
