About the Event
Known for their careful and respectful restorations of competition and road going Ferraris, we will see cars of many stages of work from general maintenance to ground up full rebuilding of classics from Maranello.
Patrick Ottis began his restoration career as an apprentice with Alf Francis in 1972 at Classic Motors in Oklahoma City, and followed him to Alf Francis Scuderia in Wichita, KS where he worked on early Ferrari and Alfa Romeo race cars. Patrick then moved to Berkeley, CA to do similar work for Stephen Griswold, where he stayed until Griswold moved to England and he opened Patrick Ottis Co. in 1982.
Today Patrick and his son Tazio work side by side on many Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance class winning Ferrari restorations, both in customer cars and their own personal projects. Last year they took first place in the Ferrari Competition class at Pebble Beach in their personal 1955 Ferrari 750 Monza after racing it in the Rolex Monterey Historics the day before.
Gather in Berkeley at Patrick Ottis' shop at 10 am. An assortment of sandwiches on ciabatta rolls, with chips and beverages served onsite after our tour.
For classic Ferrari enthusiasts, this is a shop tour that shouldn't be missed. Limited seating so please register early.
