Phil Hill - The Life of a Legend

Phil Hill: The Life of a Legend  - new exhibit opens today at the Petersen Automotive Museum

Few motorsports icons command greater respect than Phil Hill, but his accomplishments did not stop with winning auto races. In addition to being the world’s first and only American-born Formula 1 champion, he was a student of automobile history, an accomplished mechanic, a classic car restorer, a skilled photographer, and a family man. Created in collaboration with Phil’s son Derek, the Petersen Automotive Museum’s Phil Hill tribute exhibition will take a revealing look into the life and work of this racing legend interpreted through artifacts ranging from the vehicles he raced to the helmets he wore.
