9 It was a dark and stormy night
Daytona 24 Hours

Indeed it was. As only can happen in sunny Florida when you least want it, for example during a 24 hour race, it rained and rained, and it was foggy and it was cold. Is the thrill still there at 3:00 am in the morning when you are tired and there is little protection and its 40 degrees and raining steadily? No one answers, but still everyone comes back year after year. Sad to say, but the F333 SP may not be back and that will be a shame.

11 Koenig casts its eye on the 360 and re-casts a rocket
Ferrari 360 Modena Koenig Special

The German company of R. Koenig GmbH has been producing specially modified exotic cars for as long as we can remember, and they have worked mainly on the important marques, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, BMW, and Porsche. They take a top of the line model and add their own technical modifications to increase horsepower and torque, and then they modify the body styles to keep these rockets on the road. The concepts are well thought out, the workmanship is excellent, and the follow up service is admirable, all of which has made Koenig something of a subculture all its own in the automotive field.

Ferrari Challenge
The 2001 Season

The seven Championships of the 2001 season (five for the Challenge and two for the Historic Challenge), will be held in Europe, North America and Japan. They will start around March or April, and without any great changes to the way they are run, given how successful they have been in the past. A quick glance at the figures from the 2000 season just ended is enough to confirm its success.

12 Italian Technology honored in Washington

The Embassy of Italy and Ferrari SpA invited the automotive press to a workshop last September at the newly inaugurated Italian Embassy in Washington, D.C. The workshop was between Italian and American companies which specialize in the design and engineering of automotive components, and it was organized by the Commerical Office of the Italian Trade Commission. On my arrival on the morning of the event, there was an array of unusual cars on display on the grounds of the Embassy and in the grand piazza.

17 The new contender is introduced
Will the F2001 be able to bring it all back home again?

The launch of the new F2001 had all the main team members, and all the men in charge - Montezemolo, Todt, Brawn, Byrne, Martinelli - present, and all received due recognition, but the main applause was reserved for the stars of the show, Michael Schumacher, Luca Badoer, and Rubens Barichello. These men van do no wrong. They are heroes in Italy, to an unimaginable degree, something hard for the rest of the world to fathom, even as they are admired around the world.

19 Italy goes wild as Ferrari dream comes true

It was a great Party. Italy was beside itself and the emotion was overwhelming.

21 The title in Historic Perspective
It has been a long hard road. The participants are reviewed, and appreciated

As we close the book on last year's triumphant season, and as the new 2001 F1 defender is presented, a last look at the true historical significance of the Scuderia's achievements in 200 is worthwhile, particularly when stepping away from the race minutiae and looking at the big picture. The prevalent fact is that it is the first Driver's World Championship title achieved since the passing of Enzo Ferrari, and six factors are relevant in this regard.

46 Gino meets Marcello

53 The 268 SP at speed
All about 268 SP, s/n 0798, part two

The V-8 is simply loud, not as precise and finely tuned as the V-6s, and not as rich and sonorous as the V-12s, but enromous in its deep, deep rumble. There's a nice crackle to it too, a bark if you will, not butter smooth at all. It was meant to produce much power, but also a lot of torque.
