Pierre Bardinon RIP

23rd August 2012

Salut to one of the greatest car collectors of all time - with the foresight and taste to assemble a fantastic collection of Ferrari competition cars many years ago.

Pierre Bardinon passed away last week at his home in France - he started collecting competition Ferrari long before the current vogue - and had numerous of the Ferrari big hitters such as '64 250 GTO, 330 P4, 250 LM, 312 PB, Competition 250 SWB etc - in fact it would be easier to note the competition Ferrari he did NOT own at one stage.

A few racecar customers have restored or bought and sold cars from him - and it was great the way he used or allowed others to use his cars so that the public at large could enjoy the fruits of his fabulous collection.

He built his own circuit - Mas Du Clos - on his estate for trackdays and personal use although it was closed a few years ago as he was suffering bureaucratic rubbish about needing to adhere to modern safety regulations at vast expense - when the circuit was not used for racing purposes in the true sense of the word.

Anyway - Nice tribute here on the link below from one of the members on Ferrari chat:
