Me and my boys decided to take a course in track racing. On our first school day the instructor gave us a tangible demoon the importance of weight distribution in a race car. We were catching up pretty quickly the basics.
For obvious reasons I shall never be able to own or most likely even drive a Ferrari 250 GTO. However that does not stop me from sharing my 250 GTO archive with ClassicDigest readers. Here goes nothing: NART #17 Ferrari 250 GTO Le Mans 1962
I take this is the same car as in Le Mans?
This is #3387 the second 250 GTO ever made. The factory used chassis #3387 for testing and developing the 250 GTO series before it was sold to N.A.R.T. Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien finished 2nd overall and 1st in class at this very competition Sebri
And yes it's the same #17 Le Mans car. They finished 6th over all and 3rd in its class /24h Le Mans driven by Bob Grossman & George Roberts jr.
#3387 was repainted in red after Le Mans in 1962 with white stripes.
Little something I stumbled upon and purchased. It's a 1956 Beetle cabriolet build in Osnabrück by Karmann. Due to shortage on time & resources I had no option but to put it on the market and käfer was gone the same day.
