Event Description

The Simeone Foundation Auto Museum is pleased to announce our annual Spirit of Competition award winner. The Spirit of Competition represents the most prestigious award conferred by the Foundation. Each year a distinguished figure from motorsports who has a specific inspirational message is selected. Wednesday, November 15th we will present our 10th Spirit of Competition award to Derek Bell MBE.

Derek Bell, the five-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, the three-time 24 Hours of Daytona winner and the twice World Sports Car Champion, is, without question, one of the greatest race car drivers to ever compete in endurance racing. His skill in motorsports resulted in the Queen of England awarding him the MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 1986. 

Please join us in honoring Derek with our “Spirit of Competition” award. The November 15th event begins at 6:00 pm and will consist of a dinner with open bar, award presentation, with music and entertainment.

1911 POPE-HARTFORD
PORTOLA ROADSTER

 

It is believed the body is a reconstruction of the original, built atop a genuine Portola engine and chassis. After its time with Dick

King, the Pope-Hartford was

passed to another brass-era enthusiast who continued to show and enjoy the car. Still appearing fresh and impeccably detailed, the black bodywork is finished to concours quality standards, with outstanding paintwork on the

chassis and body components.

The wooden cowl boards are exquisitely finished, like fine

antique furniture. The frame-

mounted fuel tanks and gloss

black patent-leather skirts

between the body and running

boards help give the Pope its low-slung appearance, despite those massive 36” wheels. Accessories include Pope-Hartford branded

Gray & Davis headlamps, Gray & Davis cowl lamps and numerous beautifully restored brass fittings. Instrumentation is via a Warner speedometer and clock, while a separate gauge monitors fuel pressure, which is boosted via a

hand pump between the seats. Running boards and floors are finished in period appropriate

linoleum panels, and the seats

are beautifully trimmed in black leather showing virtually no signs

of use since the restoration was completed in 2011. The sale will include both the jump-seat rear

deck as well as the spare-wheel carrier, which can be changed

over for the full road-racer effect.
