This weekend's Daytona 24 Hours was the first major race of the new season. It turned out to be a classic with five cars on the lead lap for most of the race. Eventually, the victory was scored by the Acura ARX-05 entered by Wayne Taylor Racing. Scoring its third consecutive Daytona win, it was the team's debut race with the HPD/Oreca developed DPi prototype. For Acura, it was the first ever outright victory in a major endurance race.
Although the Arizona dust has barely settled, Gooding & Co. have sprung into action with the online-only, single collection European Sporting & Historic Collection sale that is already open for bidding and will close on Friday, February 5th. Headlining the nine-lot sale is this Aston Martin DB4 GT, which has recently benefitted from a complete R.S. Williams restoration. Originally delivered to Switzerland, chassis DB4GT/0144/L has been owned by prominent collectors like Chip Connor and Peter Livanos. The pre-sale estimate is 2 - 2.5 million and at the time of writing the highest bid is 1.2 million.
Shown at the 1967 Brussels Motor Show when brand new, this Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is another highlight of the sale. It spent most of its life in the hands of a single Dutch family and was never fully restored. Chassis 09389 has already received a 1.3 million bid at this moment but the reserve has not yet been met.
