Selected from the Ferraris crossing the Modena finishing line after 4 days of racing
In the 2021 edition of the Modena Cento Ore, the Premio Speciale Best Ferrari Crossing the Finish Line offered by Carrozzeria Brandoli went to the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Competizione from 1960, driven by crew no. 6 Adrian Beecroft – Nicholas Beecroft.
Among the Ferraris that crossed the finishing line in Piazza Grande in Modena, all on our short list, we selected the 1960 250 GT SWB, chassis 2129GT as the best car of the Maranello carmaker arriving at the checkered flag under the Ghirlandina after four days of racing.
We can’t fail to mention that it is the car that won the Tour de France in 1960 and came 2nd overall in the 1000 km of Montlhéry, while in 1961 finished 2nd OA at Rouen and DNF at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
An hand-crafted award
The trophy was presented to the Beecrofts by Roberto Brandoli on the stage together with Luigi Orlandini.
It was hand-crafted by Roberto Brandoli with a modelling technique used in our restoration workshop to create the forms of the most prestigious Ferraris: hand-worked then polished aluminium with number 6, the winner’s number, in the centre.
The rally: Rimini, Firenze, Forte dei Marmi, Modena
The Modena Cento Ore organized by Canossa Events it is based on a formula that includes races on the track, a long itinerary with very picturesque stretches of driving, and special uphill stages, resulting in its extraordinary appeal. But what makes it absolutely unique is the fact that when the drivers have taken off their helmets, they have the opportunity to get to know a bit of Italy’s history and to sample the finest hospitality and superb culinary traditions that make this unique country so famous.
