This was the second of three special “Close Ups” Demo Day events during the month of December. Each of these special Demo Day events takes a closer look at some of the favorite themes from the blockbuster film Ford v Ferrari. Dr. Simeone took a deeper look at the man who was Carroll Shelby and his influence in the sport of racing and beyond. The event also featured a technical explanation, historic recounting, driving demonstration, and question and answer session.
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.
