It may be true that behind every successful man there is a strong woman, but in racing, that woman may well be way out in front. Despite the genteel social pressures against women in racing, and despite the more obvious objections from male drivers against women in racing, many of these strong willed women endured and prevailed.
A tribute to the post-war women drivers - in Ferraris, of course. I.e. Yvonne Simon, Bianca Maria Piazza, Josie von Neumann, Audrey Saffell, Anna Maria Peduzzi, Annie Soisbault, Denise McCluggage, Bonnie Henn, Lilian Bryner.

The Life and Times of an Aristocrat. This being chassis s/n 6659 SF. The name borders on kitsch, but the object so named is anything but. Superfast was what this model was all about, plus being super-powerful, super-luxerious, super-expensive, and super-everything. As a further remembrance on the passing of Sergio Pininfarina, we present this final testimonial to the elegant extravagance that was the hand-built Pininfarina Ferrari.

Italy may have the Mille Miglia but America has "The Grand." Less publicity, less crowds, less fanfare maybe, but that's all to the good - quietude prevails.

It was a long hard year, and Ferrari almost made it. After many setbacks, and after many comebacks, the team brought Fernando Alonso to within three points of the Drivers' Championship.

It was a week of racing by day, parties by night, but not just any cars and not just any parties. The old Nassau Speed Week brought international cars and drivers for the week of racing, and the nights were formal affairs, some even at the Governer's mansion no less. It was high-style, and now it will be re-created.
