1960 CEGGA Ferrari 250TR

Owner: David Cooke

The latest in an impressive line-up of racing-car restoration projects completed under ex-Harlequins and England rugby player – and Historic motor sport fan – David Cooke, this CEGGA Ferrari 250TR has a fascinating history. Six years ago, David read the story of Swiss brothers Claude and Georges Gachnang and their Scuderia CEGGA team – and he tracked them down and asked them to help him recreate a tool-room copy of the Scaglietti-bodied racer and hillclimber that back in 1960 they’d built from the wreck of a 1958 250TR.

Fired up by the idea, the now-octogenarians agreed to provide drawings, detailed technical spec and hands-on help to enable David and the Neil Twyman team to build the car around original Ferrari parts including a centre chassis section. The aluminium body was hand-built as originally done by Scaglietti. The car was finished in time to race at the 2019 Goodwood Revival, and the plan is now for it to grace the hillclimbs and circuits that it tackled in period. www.ceggaferrari250.com
