For the 27th, The Amelia gathered eight of the cars that Chip Ganassi Racing competed with throughout his
career, including the Dallara which won the 2010 Indianapolis 500 and the Chevrolet Impala which won the
2010 Daytona 500.
Continuing with The Amelia’s tradition of celebrating Motorsport, racecars from the 60th Anniversary of the 24
Hours of Daytona and the 70th Anniversary of Sebring were joined on the field by some of the finest examples
in the Race Cars Pre-War, NASCAR and Gurney Eagle show groups.
A triple-carbureted, 4.5-liter in-line six-cylinder powered 1953 Delahaye 178 helped fill out the Sports and GT
Cars 1958-1972 class, the largest at The Amelia with 22 cars. This example featured coachwork by Henri
Chapron of Paris and a four-speed electromechanical transmission that allowed the driver to shift without
using the clutch. The car was on display courtesy of the Petersen Automotive Museum.
