Monterey Car Week – The Quail, A Motor Sport Gathering Part 3 – Bizzarrini

by Mike –

I believe this is the first time that there has been a Bizzarrini class at The Quail, A Motor Sport Gathering.

There were some great examples on display. It is rare to see so many Bizzarrini cars in one place. Click the images for a larger view.

In The Winner’s Circle

Valentino Balboni, the famous former Lamborghini test driver, stopped to say congratulations but I do not have a photo, just the memory. He also spent some time with me last year in Monterey as he explained that a silver Bizzarrini GT 5300 that he saw as a young man sparked an interest in cars that led to his career.
