In SCCA Part II, Dr. Simeone picked up the discussion where he left off from Part I that was about the early days of the Automobile Racing Club of America which developed into the SCCA. Part II discussed the SCCA from 1948 to the present time. The SCCA is one of the most prominent automobile clubs in America today. Since 1948, the SCCA has sanctioned both amateur and professional road racing, rallying, and autocross events across America. Featured cars for SCCA Part II were the 1950 Allard J2, the 1952 Cunningham C4R, 1952 Jaguar C-Type, the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe, the 1956 Maserati 300 S, and the 1956 Jaguar D-Type.
Located in Philadelphia, PA, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Through our theme, “The Spirit of Competition”, we celebrate the history and evolution of these magnificent machines.
Assembled over 50 years by Dr. Frederick Simeone, the Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
