SPEEDWAY, Ind. — The last Ferrari to win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the fastest car in Indianapolis 500 history are part of “From the Vault,” a new exhibit at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum.
The exhibit features a collection of items from the IMS Museum’s storied vault, including rarely-seen and never-before-displayed cars, trophies, artworks, programs, and other racing memorabilia.
“It’s cars, it’s artwork, it’s memorabilia,” said Jason Vansickle, Curator of Vehicles at the IMS Museum. “We even have an Atari 2600 on display, which is interesting. It’s a little bit of everything.”
Key exhibits in “From the Vault” include:
- 1964 Ferrari 250 LM — the last Ferrari to score an overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in 1965.
- 1965 Ford GT40 No. 4 — driven by Mark Donohue and Paul Hawkins in at Le Mans in 1966
- Janet Guthrie’s 1978 Wildcat Indy car
- The fastest car in Indy 500 history: Arie Luyendyk’s 1996 track record-setting Reynard.
“From the Vault” presented by Bank of America is open now through April 20.
