Cavallino Classic Competition Results


It was a fabulous year to see old Ferraris and Maseratis being actively raced again on Thursday and Friday at Palm Beach International Raceway. As part of the Cavallino Classic’s schedule of events, it is a true crowd-pleaser. Lawrence Stroll won the Disc Brake Race in his famous Penske 512 S, s/n 1040, and Jeff O’Neill won the Drum Brajke Race in his Maserati 20 F, a car with a wonderful history. The CCC expanded its Pre-War class to include any race car worthy and we saw a Talbot Lago T26C and a 1925 Aston Martin GP Brooklands, along with a Bugatti and several Alfa Romeos. Historic racing stalwart Peter Giddings won the Pre-War Race with his Alfa Romeo Tipo B.
