Onboard footage and data prove he's not at fault.
Early last month at the Goodwood Revival, an extremely rare and very expensive 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO/64 lost control and spun into a wall, causing serious, but repairable, damage. It was not a sight any Ferrari lover, vintage car enthusiast or any gearhead, for that matter, wants to see happen. But it did. It didn’t take long for some to start assigning blame. The 250 GTO/64 was attempting to pass a classic Corvette Stingray and another Ferrari, a 250 LM, driven by none other than Chris Harris.
A few blamed Harris for weaving on the braking, which has since been proven to be false, and Harris himself wants people to know that. In his latest episode of Chris Harris Dries, take the trip you probably couldn’t to the Goodwood Revival with Harris as your host. Because he’s Chris Harris, he was offered the chance to drive a Ferrari 250 LM.
In case you’re unfamiliar with it, let us enlighten you: it was the last Ferrari to win at Le Mans, in 1965. It’s powered by a 3.3-liter V12 engine with 320 hp and paired to a five speed manual. Think of the 250 LM as the mid-engined version of the front-engined 250 GTO. Needless to say, both Ferraris are rare, but Harris’ Ferrari emerged unscathed, although he still managed to spin out to avoid yet another collision.
