What does it take to be considered elite? In the world of racing, the criteria are crystal clear – you gotta win. Consistently. Easy to say, but hard to do, especially with a small team against the experience of a marque like Ferrari. But between 1964 and 1965, Carroll Shelby did exactly that with the 1954 - 1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe, dominating during the season, taking victory at Le Mans, and securing the 1965 FIA Word Sportscar Championship, all at overseas racetracks like Spa, Monza and the Nurburgring. Along the way, names like Bob Bondurant, Pete Brock and Allen Grant contributed to the car’s success, further cementing their places among the racing elite.
