The epic battle between Ferrari and Cobra had begun, but initially the Italian cars were still the best. The winner at Sebring in 1964 was the works Ferrari 275P (0812) of Mike Parkes/Umberto Maglioli, shown here leading the NART Ferrari 250 GTO (3767) of Ed Cantrell/Don Yenko/Harry Heuer that finished 28th overall. They are being chased by the GT class-winning. Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe (CSX2287) of Bob Holbert/Dave MacDonald, the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (005) of Roger Penske/Jim Hall that won the prototype GT class in 18th overall and the Shelby Cobra (CSX2259) of Dan Gurney/Bob Johnson that unfortunately didn’t finish after a late accident, but was still ranked 10th overall. This is just one of the scenes to capture the imagination of artist Fabrice Lachavanne, who pursues his great passion for racing cars, especially those from the era between 1920 to 1970, through his art, painting in acrylic with a particular attention paid to the details and atmosphere.
