Greetings,

So, the topic for today's Demo Day was "Racing at Spa". Dr. Simeone detailed the history of the race track at Spa in Belgium and the 24 hour races that were held there. We then demoed the following cars that are representative of cars that raced at Spa…

1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport Coupe…

Image

1956 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing...

Image

1958 Aston Martin DBR1...

Image

1962 Ferrari 250 GTO…

Image

1964 Cobra Daytona Coupe…

Image

Image

Image

On Demo Days, the cars get taken out rain or shine…

Image

Image

Cheers!

Great cars as always. I love it that you guys run the cars rain or shine. A little water never hurts. Love the Daytona Coupe. It interesting how close the all look alike in style & design.

Carroll Shelby used to drive an Aston Martin DBR1 in the
late 50s when he was still racing. Saw some pictures of him
in one at Lemans. Beautiful cars all of them. Thanks for
sharing them Bill! TR
