Ford vs Ferrari
NEW IN 2020, the Virginia Festival of the Wheel will feature a special exhibit of Ferraris, Ford GT40’s, Shelby Cobras, and Shelby Mustangs in tribute to the Ford v. Ferrari movie. This excellent film covered the accomplishments of the legendary car builder, Carroll Shelby, and his brilliant but unheralded driver Ken Miles on behalf of the Ford Motor Company to defeat Ferrari at Le Mans back in the mid-Sixties.
If you would like to enter your car in this exhibit, please contact Bob Garland at Entries@VAFestivalOfTheWheel.com
