Built between 1956 and 1961, the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa was one of the most dominant sports cars of its day. Ferrari TRs won 10 World Sportscar Championship races, including victories at Le Mans, Sebring, and the Targa Florio, and claimed the title three times: 1958, 1960, and 1961. Only 34 Testa Rossas were ever made, and just five were built in 1959.

One of those incredibly rare racing legends is now here at World of Speed! Through the end of March, visit World of Speed to see TR59 #0768, a gorgeous sports car with a storied legacy. #0768 scored victories at the L.A. Times Grand Prix, Nassau, the 1962 Portland Rose Cup, and more. One of its most successful drivers was Pete Lovely, who drove it to victory at Riverside, Pomona, and the Westwood 3-Hour Enduro race.

Lovely’s storied career led him to be selected as the Sports Car/GT member of the Northwest Motorsports Hall of Fame class of 2018. To honor Lovely’s achievements and legacy, his beloved Ferrari TR #0768 will be on display all month. Stop by the museum to check out this beautiful car for yourself!
