Italian Racing Red Demo Day at Simeone Foundation Auto Museum


Several classic racecars went on display at the Simeone Museum in Pa.

The Simeone Museum is known as one of the few museums in the world that lets visitors 'see, hear, and smell' some of history's most famous race cars as they run during demos and while they run. The latest 'demo day' was held on September 24th. The all-inclusive demo began with a speech from Dr. Simeone, the director of the museum, who spoke at length on Enzo Ferrari's contribution to his company and early racing with Alfa Romeo in the 1930s.

The day finished with some test runs of the classic racecars. The "Rosso Corsa" featured five gorgeous racers from the last century, including the 1934 Alfa Romeo Monza, 1954 Ferrari 375 MM, 1956 Maserati 300S, 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and the 1963 Ferrari 250 LM. The Maserati, Monza and Testa Rossa took turns making a few runs for the lucky spectators. Check out the photos of the classics on display and in action. The Simeone Foundation Auto Museum runs demonstration days on the 4th Saturday of each month. It is located in Philadelphia, Pa.
