The Canepa Motorsports Museum is open Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm, and is free to the public.
If you are interested in a guided tour for your group, or car club, please contact at 831.430.9940.
The museum is dedicated to the spirit of automotive competition, and the celebration of engineering excellence. On display are a broad spectrum of racecars and motorcycles from the golden age of motorsport to modern times. The museum showcases examples from multiple disciplines with everything from Can-Am to NASCAR, Sprint Cars to Le Mans.
Bruce Canepa has chosen each vehicle in the collection for it’s unique contribution to the history of the sport. The sports hero’s are well represented with cars driven by Richard Petty, Mark Donohue, Dale Earnhardt , Freddie Agabashian, Rick Mears, Peter Revson, Brian Redman, Pedro Rodriquez, Parnelli Jones, John Fitzpatrick, Jacky Ickx, Alex Xydias, and Steve McQueen.
An accomplished racer in his own right, Bruce Canepa has had the forethought to preserve and collect some of his own racecars from the past. These include the 1981 Pikes Peak hill climb car that carried him to 2nd overall, and the last Porsche 935 produced by the Porsche factory, which he raced in the IMSA championship in the early 1980’s.
We look forward to your visit!
