When discussing the giants in the world of sports car racing, it’s often the drivers and designers who first come to mind. But what about those who contributed to the sport in other ways? This Demo Day honored some of those less celebrated figures in The Sports Car Comes to America Demo Day which honored – Max Hoffman, Kjell Qvale, and Luigi Chinetti. The discussion covered the history and legacy of these three men who had the foresight and the guts to bring these special cars to America.
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.
