Palm Beach, 20th-23rd of January, 2022
The next major change was not by choice but by circumstances as the Palm Beach International
Raceway was sold and closed. The former Moroso track hosted the races from the beginning of the
Classics to last year and although the actions at the track became less and less in previous years the track
days still gave the more adventurous participants the chance to drive their cars rather than only show them.
To make up the loss of the track a new opportunity was found in the Concours Club near Miami that
hosted the track day on Thursday. This exclusive private club features a small and very technical race
track with an affiliated club house that can be described as a Country Club where cars replace the horses and
the golf course. As expected, the attendance was again very limited as not few decided to first have a look
before maybe attending in future and so only a few cars took the track on Thursday, mostly more modern
challenge and street cars with the exception on a 250 GT TdF and a 250 GT Boano.
Friday was again closer to the former program with the symposium featuring three cars, two of them
certainly among the star cars of the weekend, the 1966 Ferrari 365 P Treposti and the Ferrari 250 GTO/64.
Both cars just completed a major rebuilt and preservation before last year’s Pebble Beach concours and now
had their second appearance at the Breakers. Later that day the annual tour started with destination of the
Breakers where the cars were welcomed after sunset and the participants had the after-tour party.
Until a few years ago these first two days were also the social part of the event with the evening receptions
either at the airport for the jet centre party or the yacht hop in the marina. As Canossa wants to make it a
more social event as well it would not be a surprise if these bigger parties would return in one or the other
form in near future.
More interesting and certainly more challenging to assemble was the anniversary display of the marque as
every single year was represented by a car, starting with the first 166 Corsa Spiders to the very latest
models of the Ferrari range. Usually, the more interesting coach-built cars are presented at the upper lawn
directly in front of the hotel whereas the lower lawn is reserved for the more modern cars but the display
spanning the entire lower lawn meant that probably for the first time 2 250 GTOs could be seen down there.
As mentioned before two of the stars were the Treposti and the 250 GT/64 and it does not really come as
a surprise that these two cars finally won the Best of Show awards for the best street and the best
Other cars well worth a mention were the 250 TR (chassis 0738TR) that was on display at the Ferrari
Classiche display as it was restored in the factory to former glory just recently.
Just two cars further were the 275 GTB of Battista “Pinin” Farina, his personal car that differs in many ways
from the standard production models. The car was last shown in the very wet 2019 edition and now after more
research and another restoration it came as close as possible to the delivery specifications according to the
