The “Spirit of Competition” is the theme of the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum and the focus of our annual fundraiser. Each year a distinguished figure from motorsports is selected who has a specific inspirational message. This year we honor David Hobbs. On November 18, 2015, David will receive the award at the Simeone Museum during a gala fundraising dinner.
David’s career in motorsports began in the 1950’s behind the wheel of his mother’s Morris Oxford. Over the next 30 years, David raced on tracks all over the world in Sports Cars, Formula 1, F5000, Indy Cars, Can Am, Trans-Am and NASCAR competition. He competed in the most famous events including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 24 hours of Daytona, 12 hours of Sebring, Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500.
