Here we are in the Piazza Vittoria in Brescia, Italy on May 11, 1957 for the scrutineering of cars entered for the upcoming Mille Miglia. To the […]

Testing the Sharknose

It is early March 1961 and Ferrari is holding a test of their new rear-engined 156F1 at the Modena Aerautodromo. Here in the pits is the new car with its 65° 1.5 liter Dino V6. It seemed a far more aggressive shape than the ungainly-looking prototype which had appeared with the 246F1 motor in 1960. […]

Friends or Enemies?

All looks happy in the pits during practice at Monza for the 1956 Italian Grand Prix which will take place on September 2. The calm look of Juan Manuel Fangio, wearing his helmet and goggles, and the big smile on the face of Enzo Ferrari hides the reality of a strained relationship between the driver […]

The 1959 Italian Grand Prix took place, as usual, at Monza and was run on September 13th. The Coopers of Brabham and Moss, the former a works car and the latter belonging to Moss’s entrant Rob Walker, were able to challenge the more powerful yet less good handling cars from Maranello. Ferrari had brought a […]

Test for a Le Mans Winner

It is early June 1961 at the Modena Aerautodromo track right in Modena, often used for testing by Ferrari, Maserati and various other racing teams. Here Richie Ginther is sliding into a Ferrari 250TRI/61 which is already wearing its assigned number for the Le Mans 24 Hours which will take place on June 10-11. This […]

Rain and the Masta Kink

This is John Surtees with his Ferrari 312 on the exit from the Masta Kink at Spa-Francorchamps during the Belgian Grand Prix on June 13, 1966. The Masta Kink was a very fast, often flat in the dry, left-right midway down the long straight between Malmédy and Stavelot. Since it was lined with buildings and fences […]

Piloti che gente…

This is perhaps Louis Klemantaski’s most famous image: Peter Collins on his way to victory during the Giro di Sicilia on April 8, 1956 in a 3.5 liter Ferrari 857S with Klemantaski as his navigator. The Giro, known as the Tour of Sicily in English, was a 671 mile open road circumnavigation of the island, often used […]
