Presented at Spa-Francorchamps during the Spa Ferrari Days was a new 360 Spider, one of the first to be seen in public and not on a viewing stand. The cars were not ready to be delivered yet at this point on the beginnning of May, but such is the power and influence of Jacques Swaters that he was able to request a demonstration model for this large and important event in his home country.

Ferrari 360M GT race care of to a difficult start. New Ferrari 260 Challenge cars create a following.

The Ferrari 360 Modena has begun to enter FIA GT Championship races in Europe, and to date it has been found to be something of a laggard compared to the competition in class N-GT, most notably the Porsches. But these early entrants are little more than 360 Challenge cars, even though they are called 360M GT, and they have much room to grow.
9 Feature Ferrari and the United States Grand Prix
The Team's involvement in America and all the results gathered together.

On September 24, 2000, the United States Grand Prix will take place at the spiritual home of American racing, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Speedway has built a costly new road racing circuit inside the oval, which will run clockwise and utilize parts of the oval corse, include the short chute between oval turns two and one. The start will take place, naturally, on the main straight.
25 Feature The first US GP
A personal memoir of Sebring 1959 - part One

On December 12, 1959, Jack leete and Jeff Allison, two intrepid eighteen year olds, hurriedly finished their early morning paper routes and jumped in Jack's similarly intrepid MG-TD for a top down, wind-in-your-face, 90 mile journey. They were on their way to the first ever Formula One race in the U.S., and their destination was the sleepy, orange grove surrounded town of Sebring.

A personal memoir of Sebring 1959 - part Two

Sebring was a very unlikely location to decicde the Formula One Championship - not smooth paved roads through the forests or city streets or uphill glens, but concrete aircraft runway! In spite of this, the course was actually well known to the Europeans, due to the annual running of the Sebring Twelve Hour Race for sports cars that had started ten years before in 1950.
34 Feature A Car - a Race - an Era
An appreciation of all that is the Ferrari 335 Sport, with a special look at s/n 0700

Louis Klemantaski, Edward Eves, Mark Wallach, jim Sitz

Making the rounds of various historic events the past few seasons has been a Ferrari that is one of the rarer Ferrari model types, in that it actually is part of a quite small and rather select grouping of Ferrari sports racing cars. We had a chance recently to photograph s/n 0700, and we were also able to gather a wealth of interesting and pertinent material, both visual and written, on its history.
39 Feature Creating the ultimate sports car engine
50 engines in 10 years - from 1.5 litres to 4 litres, two cams to four

In the beginning, Enzo Ferrari saw a twelve cylinder Packard race car, in the year of our lord 1921. The engine design became a fixation until he became independent many years later and could build cars and engines on his own. All he needed was an engine to begin his dream, and from there he could easily build a car.

A bit of Ferrari "arcania" on the engine 0700

When we began the restoration of s/n 0700 in the early 1990s, the first puzzling item was the numero interno on its engine: 142/1.

I could not resist the call of the Mille Miglia, and when I was once again asked to join Peter Collins in the Ferrari team I agreed with pleasurable anticipation. Last year, in the most terrible weather conditions, the hardship and strain had been more than recompensed by the thrill of watching Pter balancing the car against natural forces to avery about 84 mph over 1000 miles of flooded and slippery roads.

The Monaco circuit, arguably the most charismatic Grand Prix circuit in the world, hosted the Automobile Club de Monaco's second Grand Prix Historique over the weekend preceding the Formula One Grand Prix. Apart from the six race program with both free and timed practice sessions, there were no less than three auctions held over the weekend.
57 Corse Mille Miglia survives and prospers
Still the finest vintage sports car rally in the world

MPS Editorial Services

The year 2000 Mille Miglia Historica is over and by all accounts it was as enjoyable as it was amusing. Enjoyable in that it was a classic event as always, with some of the finest sports and racing cars let loose on over 1,000 miles of Italian roads; crowds cheering, flags waving, police motorcycles carving a path, fine weather, etc.; it doesn't get much better than this for the true enthusiast.
