Ferrari 250 GTO #14

Goodwood 1998 Dron/Flux

Ref # C3061

History
In 1962, the 250 GTO (75722 MO aka HSJ 771) was set to race the UDT/Laystall car in the Goodwood Easter Monday Trophy Race with Stirling Moss driving. Having practiced in the car on the Saturday, Moss never drove the Ferrari on the Easter Monday due to his near fatal accident in a Lotus 19 that weekend.

Interestingly, the car’s second race in England was at Silverstone on May 12th, driven by Masten Gregory (race No.30) to 2nd place in the “International Scalextric Trophy” race!

After its appearance at Goodwood in 1998, it made a second outing in 1999, as part of Moss’s 70th birthday celebrations. The car, in its light green livery and tribute No.7 racing roundel, was driven by Sir Stirling Moss and Tony Dron to an appreciative audience.

In 2000 the car was sold for an incredible eight million US dollars.

Scalextric Model
Owners Harry Leventis and Tim Samways entered the pale green 250 GTO '62 s/n 3505GT, at the 1998 Goodwood Revival Meeting. The car (race no.14) was driven by the always fast journalist Tony Dron and F2-pilot Ian Flux.
