GTOs to Test the Corkscrew August 2011
One of the feature races, group 6A, of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion showcases the ultra-rare and considered to be the most desired and admired Ferraris of all-time - the Ferrari 250 GTO.
The field of GTOs will take the grid in what will assuredly capture the attention of fans as they watch these fabulously sleek, yet muscular, thoroughbreds tame the demanding 11-turn, 2.238-mile road course. Interestingly, immediately after their race, crew teams will get to work on a cosmetic makeover to prepare the cars for the lawns of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance for a special class showing.
The Ferrari 250 GTO, which are known to fetch between $25 and $30 million each are universally admired. In fact, Enzo Ferrari personally determined who originally was able to even purchase the GTO, thereby automatically creating the legend well before their dominating wins on the race track.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, August 19-21, features more than 550 of the finest examples of automotive history, style, design and technology that, is filling the race paddock for its 38th year at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
