The Canepa Motorsport Museum is dedicated to car and motorcycle racing and engineering excellence. It exhibits a wide range of racing cars and motorcycles from several disciplines, Can-Am, NASCAR, Indy, Le Mans, hill climbing… But Canepa is also a company that restores, maintains and prepares historic racing cars, customizes and optimizes sports cars, restores and sells (mainly) classic sports cars.
An eclectic driver himself, Bruce Canepa had the good idea to collect some of his own race cars. There is notably the hill climb car prepared in 1981 for the Pikes Peak race (twin-turbo Porsche engine, 2nd overall), his Porsche 934.5 from 1977 (3rd at the 1979 24 Hours of Daytona) and the last Porsche 935 produced by the Porsche factory, which he drove in the IMSA and Trans-Am championships.
The cars in the collection are carefully selected for their pedigree, their sporting contribution, their track record or the famous drivers who drove them. Bruce Canepa having driven a lot of Porsche, this brand is widely represented, with for example several 917K winner of the 24 Hours of Daytona 1970 or the powerful 917-10 CanAm of 1972. In a different style, NASCAR is represented by the spectacular 1969 Dodge Daytona or Dale Earnhardt’s Chevrolet Monte Carlo NASCAR.

Racing bikes make up the other part of the museum, with for example Indian Scout from 1919 and 1929, a Norton Manx (1953), a BSA Goldstar Scrambler (1962) or a Ducati 916 SPS World Superbike (1998).
