The Brickyard is over 100 years old and has played host to some of the most competitive matches in the history of racing. For some, the hardest part wasn’t the race itself but the qualification process that preceded it. Seven cars from our collection were brought out to explore some of the greatest winning and losing moments related to one of America’s most epic race events, the Indy 500. The 1956 Ferrari Kurtis 500D is the newest addition to the Simoeone Collection and it was introduced for the first time as part the Brickyard Demo Day.
