A Run on The Streets

Two lovely Ferrari 312/T5s on the streets of Long Beach on March 30, 1980 during the USGP West. Nevertheless, beauty does not finish first every time. Ferrari, which had won the Championship for Jody Scheckter in 1979 with the 312/T4, found that their already rather ancient design would be out of the running with its […]
