4 Indimenticabile Gilles
A limited edition set of prints by Antionio De'Giusti

Last year at this time we presented a special boxed print set of Prof. De'Giusti's paintings of the nine Grand Prix World Championship Ferraris; we understand it has enjoyed an outstanding success around the world. In this issue, we would like to show you another set of prints he had done, one hovering one of the greatest and most beloved of Ferrari drivers, Gilles Villeneuve.

8 F130 continues to test; debut in 1994

The general shape of the F130 can be seen here, but we again warn you that there is much camouflage here as well. Indeed that F40 tail has the F40 imprint in it, and there is tape covering the nose and sides. Rumors are rampant on when this will appear, and whether Ferrari will go racing with it.

Ferrari rumors, we love them

Philadelphia GP brings out some old Ferraris

The Philadelphia Vintage Grand Prix in June has come a long way in just a few years and it is now a "must do" for enthusiasts in the northeast. Historically, a Grand Prix race was held in the same Fairmount Park in 1908, and many of the old giants of the era came back to participate in the new race.

On hand at Zandvoort for this Italia à Zandvoort Ferrari meet was s/n 002 C, considered to be the first Ferrari ever made in the postwar years. Here it's configured in its later Spyder Corsa livery as a 166 F2. It was the Concours d'Elegance winner entered by Piet Roelofs.

15 Ferrari Celebrations
Alberto Pedretti and Bill Rudd honored for their lons and fruitful years with Ferrari

Alberto Pedretti recently celebrated forty years of involvement with Ferrari, beginning many years ago as a team mechanic for Ferrari, then the same for Chinetti in the U.S. Also celebrating a great anniversary year, thirty five in fact, is old Ferrari friend and mentor to many, Bill Rudd. Bill goes way back to the early days of Ferrari in California.

14 Reading Concours

Pietro Castiglioni's Reading Concours d'Elegance has grown into one of the largest and most pleasant events of the early summer season. On the lush grounds of the Reading Country Club in Pennsylvania, a good number of Ferraris are arrayed to view at one's own pace.

16 Temporadas! - part 1 on the epic Argentinian contests
The complete story of these memorable Latin races, told by a gentleman who was there

Before looking into the World Championship "Temporadas" spanning from 1954 to 1960, let us rapidly go back even further, to when Giuseppe "Nino" Farina took his two liter G.P. Ferrari to victory in the 1949 Rosario Grand Prix - run on this Argentinian up-country city's street layout - and scored the marque's first win down here, at the incredibly low average of 48.3 mph, due to the very damp prevailing conditions.

28 The Fazzaz - a competition SWB that's still competing
Old Ferraris can be kept alive forever

It started life as a competition 250 SWB and has remained active every since. Completed in 1960, s/n 2095 GT had all the competition upgrades found in the racing SWBs, as compared to the street SWBs. Light and fast, and powered by the soon to be very famous three liter V-12, s/n 2095 GT had several good years of competition in the hands of Dr. Agberico Cacciari. It has had several recent good years of competition in the hands of Jerry Lynch.

33 456 GT 2+2!
It's almost there, and until it arrives, we'll give you a close look

We have been trying for quite a while to get out collective selves into the new 456 GT, so that we can give you all a firsthand account of driving this interesting and novel luxury liner from Ferrari, more particularly, we have been trying to get your man in Italy, Guy Mangiamele, to Maranello and into the 456 GT to do one of his patented test drives plus photo session, of the car at Fiorano and in this sonorous hills around Maranello. But we play a cat and mouse game with Ferrari.

40 Le Mans misfortune
Ferrari 348 at Le Mans

A welcome sight at Le Mans this year was a well prepared 348 "LM" entered by Simpson Engineering. Managed by Gordon Horn, the company has an illustrious background of twelve participations in the 24 hours. Robin Smith, Stefano Sebastiani and Tetsuya Ota were to drive the right hand drive chassis s/n 95450, which, except for two Silverstone test days, was fresh from the workshop and very tidily prepared.

Ferrari to enter IMSA WSC and GT racing

Although not confirmed in hard print, in other words, in an actual press release, there is mounting evidence that Ferrari plans to build at least one chassis to compete in IMSA's new World Sports Car category. Finally outlawing the GTP and Camel Lights cars, IMSA will now proceed to utilize these new open top sports cars, plus several GT classes.
