ART of MOTORSPORTS
Ever since the second horseless chariot was produced, racing must have begun. Today, we see all forms of motorized racing to appeal to the wide spectrum of interests.

As a result, the action removed Ferrari as top dog of endurance racing, and oddly, Ferrari hasn't won Le Mans since its beating.
Not only cited as one of the most beautiful Grand Prix cars to race, but the race car diosigned for Dan Gurney" All American Racers team, rewarded him as one of three to date to win a GP race in a car of his own construction.
