By sharing stories and highlights of the big event, you get a chance to become part of the Legend of Le Mans with guests from different eras of over 100 years of racing. In 1978, Jim Busby debut in the Le Mans 24H in a Porsche 935 from Kremer Racing, and finished in 6th position overall. His enduring association with BFGoodrich began with the 1982 Le Mans 24H when his Porsche 924 Carrera GTR won the GT class using BFG's road-specification tires; and they remain his sponsors and tire suppliers during his 1984 return to Le Mans with a Group C2 Lola-Mazda. In subsequent seasons he concentrated on managing the team, and perhaps his finest victory came in the 1989 Daytona 24H when John Andretti, Bob Wollek and Derek Bell shared the win in the Miller High Life Porsche 962. Jim sold his team in 1990, and move on to other projects and racing. Busby himself may not admit it, but he is regarded as one of the worlds best Porsche specialists from the 1970s and 80s.

Aston Martin: The Underdogs of Le Mans (1959)

6/13/2024
The Simeone Museum in Philadelphia, PA is proud to present Le Mans 1959 The Underdog Champion, a demo day event celebrating the unlikely and impressive victory by a relatively small and underfunded Aston Martin team. At the time, the 24 hours of Le Mans was dominated by larger, highly financed organizations such as Ferrari and Jaguar, who had access to more advanced technology and greater resources. Despite this, Aston Martin managed to pull off a stunning upset victory at the 1959 race with their DBR1 piloted by drivers Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby. During this demo day, visitors had the chance to see three of the most popular cars in the museum in action, learn from the team of experts about their design and engineering, and discover more about the intense competition and challenges of Le Mans during the late 1950s. The featured exhibition included cars like the 1956 Jaguar D Type, 1958 Aston Martin DBR1, and the 1958 Ferrari 250 Testarossa. All car racing in the world, you could argue Le Mans is the biggest race in the world. Indy 500, that could be a challenge, but Le Mans, it's right at the top and it's certainly beyond any other sports car race, even though there are tremendous sports car races. If you'd like to learn more about the Simeone Foundation Museum or schedule a visit, be sure to check out www.simeone.org. Museum. org where you can find upcoming demo days, as well as ways to support the museum and keep racing history alive.
