Canepa Motorsport Museum

by Peter Judy

We have a rare opportunity to visit  Bruce Canepa's Motorsports Museum, dedicated to the spirit of automotive competition, and the celebration of engineering excellence. On display are a broad spectrum of racecars and motorcycles from the golden age of motorsport to modern times. The museum showcases examples from multiple disciplines with everything from Can-Am to NASCAR, Sprint Cars to Le Mans.

Bruce Canepa has chosen each vehicle in the collection for it’s unique contribution to the history of the sport. The sports hero’s are well represented with cars driven by Richard Petty, Mark Donohue, Dale Earnhardt , Freddie Agabashian, Rick Mears, Peter Revson, Brian Redman, Pedro Rodriquez, Parnelli Jones, John Fitzpatrick, Jacky Ickx, Alex Xydias, and Steve McQueen.

An accomplished racer in his own right, Bruce Canepa has had the forethought to preserve and collect some of his own racecars from the past. These include the 1981 Pikes Peak hill climb car that carried him to 2nd overall, and the last Porsche 935 produced by the Porsche factory, which he raced in the IMSA championship in the early 1980’s.

Most recently, on Sunday, July 17th at the Hillsborough Concours, it was a special day for Bruce Canepa as his 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300SL won its class, and the Best Open Post-WWII Car perpetual trophy at the 60th Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance.  Originally the Mercedes show car at the 1960 Copenhagen International Auto Show, the Roadster underwent a two-year, 4000+ hour restoration at Canepa bringing it back to the condition that wowed the crowds in Denmark 56 years ago.

For those of you who will be hungry and want to have lunch with fellow Club members, there is an optional no host lunch following the tour. Lunch will be at Malones kicated at 4402 Scotts Valley Dr., Scotts Valley, CA(831) 438-2244 malonesgrille.com
