    Seems like it's a private event for Testa Rossa (and Cal Spyder?) owners. Marcel made mention a couple weeks ago in another thread that there was something (he wasn't specific about what or where) coming up along the lines of the GTO reunion/tours of the past.

    Yes, now that you mention it, I remember it.

    The cali spiders are probably back up cars :)

    I believe TR owners refer to them as 'pizza getters'. :D

    Overall winner at 1959 Le Mans was Aston Martin DBR1/2 driven by Roy Salvadori/Carroll Shelby.

    You must’ve meant 1958 and 1960 overall Le Mans winners . . .

    What does that have to do with the 60th Anniversary Tour of the 250 TR's?

    A partial list is
    Pontoon types
    Plain Red - ? could be any one of a number of Red TRs
    Black with Red nose band - #0714TR - Rob Walton
    Red #6 - #0716TR - Charles Nearburg
    Yellow with Black stripe - #0722TR - Tony Wang
    Yellow - #0736TR - Unknown, sold by McCaw in early 2018 for circa $45 mil.
    Red with White nose band - #0748TR - Ed Davies

    TR59/60s
    Red #14 - #0766TR - McCaw
    Red #10 - #0768TR (?) - McCaw (total guess)
    Red #9 - #0770TR - Mozart

    TR61
    Red #10 - #0794TR - Sachs

    Without detailed pictures its hard to know if I missed any others, I think there might be another yellow car and prob. several red cars...... Over to the rest of the serial # junkies.

    Sad that 0792 TR is not there. The most beautiful of all the TR´s and probably top 3 of the better looking Ferrari´s ever IMO.

    The differences in detail are subtle but there are some. Looking at them both right now (racing history aside), I honestly couldn't pick which one I'd prefer. Two stunningly beautiful creations from Ferrari and Fantuzzi.
