It's not every day you get to see a Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa at speed, nor is it any decade you get to see an Aston-Martin DBR1. But it might be a once-in-a-lifetime event to get to see these two cars race against eachother, unless you were watching sports car racing in Europe in 1958 or '59.
Your chance to see these ultra-rare, ultra-valuable cars doing what they were meant to do -- pound the pavement -- once again has a small window. That window will be at the Simeone Foundation Museum Sept. 26.
England Vs. Italy; Aston-Martin Vs. Ferrari Demonstration Day On September 26
On the fourth Saturday of September, we will be putting on a Demonstration Day that would be very hard to duplicate anywhere in the world. We'll be taking our Aston-Martin DBR1 (ex Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham and Jim Clark) out to drive against the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa once driven by Ritchie Ginther, among others. This recreation of the 1958/59 Championship season will be an event you won't want to miss.
In preparation for the Demonstration Day, we've had both cars out back doing some trial runs. You can't imagine how wonderful they sound - and smell!
The show starts promptly at 12 Noon, Saturday Sept. 26. Rain date is the next day, Sunday at Noon. Admission is included with the regular Museum admission.
