6 corse Formula One summary from your staff
The season so far gives Ferrari the edge, and we would love to wallow with you in this continuing joy, and give you all the minute details of Ferrari's dominance. But we are in the unfortunate position of coming out every two months, and to make matters worse, we go to press nearly three weeks before each cover date.

7 Corse FIA-GT racing proceeds in Europe, with the GT Ferraris in the pointsd Factory support. Report by Hugo
Plus new entries and Factory support

Hugo Garritsen


We have grumbled and moaned in many past issues of the magazine, trying to suggest, and yes to convince, the leading lights at Ferrari that the firm should either re-enter sports car and GT racing, or at least give official Factory support to those qualified privateers who want to campaign a GT Ferrari; all we were told that an F1 Championship had to be won before Ferrari could entertain other projects.
Well, a Championship was won, and Ferrari has remained true to its word. It has announced that it is seriously looking into the possibility of forming a separate department with Ferrari to support the GT privateer teams.

Prodrive, the English based team which has made an excellent name for itself in sports car racing and rallying, has unveiled its Ferrari 550 GTO Maranello. Two cars have been commissioned by Frenchman Frederic Doc, who rallies a Subaru with Prodrive (and who bought one of the Italtecnica 550s from last year).
Work started on the project on January 2nd of this year, and in just sixteen weeks, Prodrive has designed, built and tested the new car.

Hugo Garritsen, Andreas Meiniger


The Spa Ferrari Days were always grand affairs, but they have grown even larger in the past few years. The weekend includes Ferrari Challenge races, late model Ferrari racing, Ferrari-Maserati historic races, and Ferrari and Maserati owner ride-and-drive sessions, with great attendance overall from all the Ferrari Clubs of Europe, and now the Maserati Clubs as well. It is impossible to take it all in, or to report on it all, so unfortunately we will confine ourselves to the historic racing.

The inside story

MPS Photographs


No fewer than 371 cars covering 50 different makes were entered in this year's Mille Miglia, all built btween 1927 and 1957. There was a noticeable change at scrutineering and check in this year. The FIA has a vintage car division, and they sanction many of the vintage races and rallies around Europe. They were at the Mille Miglia and the well informed FIA delegates, including Jean Sage who was in charge op scrutinizing the Ferrari entrants, carried out what appeared to be harder, more stringent inspections of all cars. Any anomolies were sure to be found.

Some Ferraris we cover in Cavallino because they are important milestones in the timeline that is Ferrari, some because of their significant racing history, some because of their famous or infamous owners, some because they are rare, or newly found, or recently restored.
Every now and then, however, we turn our eyes to a Ferrari that has none of the above, has, that is, no great claim to fame, but is simply a beautiful machine, beautiful in its concept and beautiful in its execution.

Another complimentary article on the Ferrari GTO, but what's not to like. This time though, we talk about an unusual example, one all in white. An appreciation, and research on this s/n 3729 GT.
