Ferrari Beaters: Aston Martin DBR1

DtRockstar1 records a very rare and historic Aston Martin DBR1, 1 of 4 built for racing worldwide. The chassis seen here is DBR1/3, which was piloted by Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham. It won the 1000km Nurburgring in 1958, outshining several Ferraris and Porsches. It was later driven by Jim Clark at Le Mans.

This driving demonstration was held at the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia, PA. Once a month, they take a selection of cars from their stunning collection and drive them for museum attendees. The theme of this demonstration was "Ferrari Beaters," as the cars that were driven on this particular day were cars that beat Ferrari in prestigious races. The other cars driven that day were a Porsche 917LH, Shelby Daytona, and a Ford GT40 Mk IV. Also on display outside was a Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, but was not driven since the theme was "Ferrari Beaters."
