4 Christie's Historic Festival and 25th Anniversary FOC meet at Silverstone

To celebrate the twenty fifth anniversary of the Ferrari Owners Club in Great Britain, it was decided to incorporate the celebration into Britain's premier historic race meeting, the Christie's International Historic Festival at the Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire over the weekend of July 25 and 26. The idea obviously struck the right chord with members, as the turnout over the weekend was certainly the largest single gathering of the marque ever witnessed in England.

11 New President of Ferrari North America announced

As of August 1, the new head of Ferrari N.A. was Dr. Gian Luigi Buitoni. The announcement was something of a surprise in that Dr. Buitoni is not a Fiat of Ferrari executive being transferred into the post, as been the case over the past decade in the U.S. Rather, he is an international businessman with close personal ties to both Fiat Chairman Gianni Agnelli and to Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo.

18 Fairmont Park Vintage Grand Prix Festival 1992

It looked and felt like Europe in June of 1956 again, not June in 1992. Ferraris lined up for a road race between metal fencing, flags waving in the breeze, chattering crowds lined up two deep behind the fences while track people moved the cars forward. The drivers, some with passengers, white T-shirts, motorcycle goggles and only a few with helmets, watched the flag carrying starter.

Meadow Brook Concours

For the 1992 Meadow Brooks concours, the honored marques were first, all the varied exotic French Classics on different chassis, and two, the Aston Martin.

21 New portfolio announced - a Legend pays tribute to a Legend
Antonio De'Giusti

Many years ago when we began this small escapade called 'Cavallino', we included in our first ever issue of the magazine a profile of Professor Antonio De'Giusti, an artist who by then, in the late 1970s, was already famous in the small world of Ferrari. He had gained this special recognition partly because of a unique friendship and mutual admiration that had evolved between Prof. De'Giusti and Enzo Ferrari himself.

26 Louis Klementaski documents a rivalry
A moment in time

Louis Klementaski's camera opens an historic window, allowing us to view a moment during a watershed year in Grand Prix racing. To get the full effect of the image, we must digress. Mercedes dominated top line racing in the immediate pre-World War II period. Banned from international competition until 1950, they reentered European Grand Prix racing in 1954 for the first time since the war.

28 Ferrari 512 TR - a Ride in the Rocket
Test drive at Fiorano and in the hills around Maranello

On Sunday evening around sunset, the Factory was quiet. Walking the perimeter and looking through various crash in the walls, I saw several prototypes, tightly covered, that I couldn't identify. Surround then were new TRs, 348s, very few Mondials, and the last eight or so F40s, waiting for their final detailing. The only sound was the hum of distant ventilators.

34 Pontoon Fender Prototype!
The first pontoon rendered Ferrari was the second Testa Rossa - s/n 0704

With the typical multi-year development time of an American car of the 1990s, it's hard to comprehend the former radical short Ferrari timetable for what would become the 250 Testa Rossa race cars. In essence, Ferrari race cars were not used solely for experimentation, nor were they simply development vehicles. They were to be raced and then modified as the occasion demanded.
