10 The Cavallino Classic's fifth anniversary was something to celebrate
Perfect weather caps a perfect Ferrari weekend

If you missed the 1996 Cavallino Classic on the weekend of February 8-11, we can only shed a tear for you now. There were some truly historical Ferraris present, models not often seen in public, and they were accompanied by some very generous owners and some very helpful and competent restorers and mechanics.

22 The Ferrari Museum of Art
The Matsuda Collection presents a splendid trove of Ferrari art

The automobile museums (yes, there are five!) of the Matsuda Collection are located east of Mt. Fuji and situated conveniently along Route 138, just off the Tomei Highway and nearby to the entrance to the Hakone Mountains National Park. The largest of the five museums is the Ferrari Museum of Art, unique in Japan as a museum with no other subject than on our favorite marque.

34 The forgotten Championship
Ferrari heard the song of the mountains, and answered in kind. A general survery of the European Mountain Championships

One of Ferrari's other quests, however has been largely ignored by both the historical press and even enthusiasts, and this was the European Mountain Championships. Just as the top of Pike's Peak has always been a magnet for American racers, the more numerous European mountains have always attracted drivers ever since the earliest days of the motor industry.

42 Ferrari F310 presentation
Formula One Championship

Ferrari's challenger for the 1996 Grand Prix season was introduced on February 15th at Fiorano in front of several hundred journalists. Surrounding the Ferrari F310 (3 liters, 10 cylinders), finished the night prior, were Michael Schumacher, Eddie Irvine, test driver Nicola Larini, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, and team manager Jean Todt.

43 The 24 Hour sprint at Daytona

Fresh from a winter of testing, Ferrari returned to the big track determined to take top honors. This year's 34th running had a near record starting grid of 78 cars. Mauro Baldi's lap record set last year was bettered by over two seconds by Didier Theys in the Momo Ferrari F333 SP. For this season's first race, the Scandia team entered the F333 SP, s/n 003, with the all-star driver line up of Mauro Baldi, Michele Alboreto and Fermin Velez.

44 Le Mans
A moment in time

Louis Klemantaski's image takes us back to Le Mans on June 25, 1960, one third of the way through Ferrari's domination of the championship. The race is being held on its traditional date, the weekend closest to the summer solstice, allowing competitors the minimum amount of night racing.
