David Love raced historics with vigor and enthusiasm, and when he lost his battle with Parkinson’s disease, the vintage racing world mourned. The Classic Sports Racing Group dedicated its spring Sonoma race to Love, who was instrumental in forming the CSRG in the late 1960s. Reflecting Love’s passion for Ferrari, each car entered in the event bore a prancing horse on its flanks, “racing with Dave” one last time.
Love’s own 1957 250 Testarossa was a centerpiece in the garage. Love raced it with gusto in historic events throughout California, after an earlier career as an SCCA racer. At the Sonoma opener, the 250 continued to draw a steady stream of admirers despite being parked next to Tyrrell and Lotus F1 cars. Stop back for more photos from the CSRG opener in the coming days.
