One of the oldest questions in the sport of auto racing is if it is either a team or an individual sport? The correct answer is yes, to both. We know that there is no “I” in team, but the best drivers compete to be #1, which is what makes them the best drivers. Balancing the needs of the team and the personality of the driver behind the wheel is considered to be one of the most difficult jobs in all of professional sports. This Demo Day examined the challenges through the lens of four of the greatest team managers in the history of racing – Ferrari, Neubauer, Wyer, and Shelby.

The featured cars for this Demo Day Included: the 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza, the 1964 Cobra Daytona Coupe, the 1958 Aston Martin DBR1, and the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL.
