20 Ferraris in the 2005 Ferrari Maserati Historic Challenge
The 2005 Historic Season sees close competition in Europe

Pau Prepares... The weekend of May 14 and 15 was the start of the ninth season of the European Shell Ferrari Maserati Historic Challenge. Spa Sparkles... The second round of the Championship took place at the Spa Ferrari Days at the Francorchamps circuit on the weekend of June 25-26. Nürburgring nuggets... For the Nurburgring races, the Historic Challenge on August 13-14 was part of the Oldtimer Grand Prix, and therefore had to race against period competition cars like Jaguar, Porsche and Aston Martin. Estoril Excites... The next round was at a new venue for the Historics, as the fames Estoril circuit in Portugal hosted the event on October 8 and 9. Mugello Madness... On October 22 and 24, only two weeks after the Estoril race, the annual Ferrari Finals were held at Ferrari's own track at Mugello.

The 2005 Historic season sees close competition in America

Moroso Memories... Close racing, the largest field in the history of the series, and great weather combined to create an exciting start to the 2005 Shell Historic Ferrari Maserati Challenge season. Fontana Fables... The Historic Challenge is about old cars - the races which created Ferrari and Maserati legends. These are old cars raced at the Fontana California Speedway on April 3 for the first time. Vegas Visit... The next race in the 2005 season was at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, on May 14-15. Temperatures were in the 90s and the hot weather was matched by some hot action on the track. Tremblant Tales... The next race in the Historic series was at the 2.65 mile Le Circuit at Mont-Tremblant, as part of the Ferrari Festival on June 25-26. Lime Rock Lessons... The next races were part of the Ferrari Maserati Days at Lime Rock Park, Connecticut, on July 8-9. Elkhart Excites... The last event in the Historic Challenge was at Road America, at Elkhart Lake, WI, as part of the Ferrari / Maserati Racing Days scheduled on August 6th and 7th.

28 Goodwood Revival 2005
The premier vintage and classic car racing event - the Goodwood Revival Meeting

The eight running of the Goodwood Revival Meeting attracted 110,000 visitors to the picturesque circuit near Chichester in rural Sussex over the three days, for what is probably the ultimate trip down memory lane for classic motor sports enthusiasts, to what many people consider to be the halcyon days of motor sport during the fifties and the sixties.

6th Concours d'Elegance Paleis Het Loo

This annual event is held at Apeldoorn, north of Arnhem, and close to the German border. Nearby is Het Loo, a royal palace and the residence of former Queen Wilhelmina from the time of het abdication in 1948 until her death in 1962. Praised as one of Europe's top Concours d'Elegance, the Paleis Het Loo event has earned itself a predominant position on the international classic car agenda.

31 2005 Ferrari Owners Club UK National Concours - incredibly variety as always

The Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain is certainly one of the oldest Ferrari clubs around, having been formed in the early 1960s when Ferrari, and especially Ferrari in England, was in its relative infancy. It has grown over the years and has become an institution, like many activities in England, with its own set of time honored club rules and traditions.

32 Touring's Testa Rossa
It was a 500 TR, and then a 625 LM, and now a 500 TR again, all done by Ferrari

Back in the 1950s, when Testa Rossa was two words, Ferrari sent them out with two liter in-line fours or three liter V-12 engines, and bodies crafted by Sergio Scaglietti or Medardo Fantuzzi. Because so many were built that way, it's too easy to assume that's the way all Ferrari Testa Rossas started out. Except for the final example modified for Le Mans in 1962, which received a four liter V-12, and three examples built in 1956, which headed for Carrozzeria Touring in Milan for coachwork.

Ferraris at the Sports Car tracks of Central USA - part three of six

After the 1957 season, the many existing and splendid sports racing cars were to be made obsolete, as the governing body, the Commission Sportive Internationale (CSI), once again decided to tinker with the specifications. The new CSI rule book mandated open-bodied sports cars, with a maximum capacity of three litres, as being eligible for the 1958 World Sports Car Championship.

61 Cavallino Classic at Concorso Italiano 2005
A look at this huge event and the Ferraris that look part, all 320 of them!

This was the third year for Concorso Italiano at its new Black Horse Country Club site, and it was also the third year of Cavallino's involvement with the Ferraris and the Ferrari judging. We are please to say that both have improved. For Concorso Italiano, it was a good move from Quail Lodge, as the old site, while bucolic and picturesque, was relatively small and was surrounded by private homes and homeowners who did not take kindly to the once a year infusion of 1,000 cars and 7,000 people.
