Description of the original vehicle: A highlight of the 30th 24 Hours of Le Mans that took place from June 23rd to 24th, 1962 was the debut of the newly-developed Ferrari 250 GTO, which went into the race with high expectations and optimism. The race was the 8th series run of the World Sportscar Championship of the year. What was new was the classification of participating vehicles into 18 different racing classes. In the experimental class, the driver-duo Olivier Gendebien /Phil Hill raced a highly powerful Ferrari 330 TRI/LM Testa Rossa Spyder to the first place in overall standing.
For the GT class, Ferrari had a new trump card -- the Belgian driver-duo Pierre Noblet/Jean Guichet in 250 GTO Chassis #3705 with the license plate MO-77914. This was a team with seasoned experience in endurance racing as well as prudent and outstanding driving skills. Fifty-five teams started off on the course. The Olivier Gendebien/Phil Hill team finished first in overall standing after completing 331 laps that totaled 4,451.255 km in 24 hours. Their average speed was 185.469 km/h, with Phil Hill driving the Spyder to establish the fastest lap time at 3.57.700 minutes, 204.202 km/h. Also remarkable was the result achieved by Pierre Noblet /Jean Guichet, the GT-class winner team in its Ferrari 250 GTO with starting #19 on a blue, white, and red tricolor-striped body.
They covered a distance of 4,384.136 km in 24 hours, completing 326 laps at an average speed of 182.67 km/h. In addition to their first-place finish in the GT class, the remarkable performance led them to a 2nd position in overall standing. Three of the participant GTO’s finished in the top six places, thus making Le Mans 1962 one of the most successful racing events for Ferrari to this day.
