Competition is indispensable to progress.
– John Stuart Mill
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Simeone Foundation Museum and to share with you a display of racing sports cars I have been collecting since I was a young man.
Living organisms, fighting for survival, adapt to the demands of their environment. The strongest pass on their superior genes to future generations. In the competition between the species, the fittest indeed do survive.
The same is true with many inanimate objects. There are few illustrations of the effects of competition as dramatic, and beautiful, as the evolution of the racing sports car. This is the theme of our exhibition. Here you can learn how racing improves the breed. You can see the evolution of the race car as the result of seven decades of the “spirit of competition.”
We will be having rotating temporary exhibits that will further illustrate the spirit of competition. Please check our Web site often for current information. While you’re here, please sign up to receive our email newsletter.
I hope you will visit us in person in the near future and will come back often.
