Peter SInghof


The Collection de Voitures de S.A.S. Le Prince de Monaco, in Fontvieille, Monaco, is hosting an exhibition of Ferrari between December 3, 2018 and March 15, 2019, which spans no less than 47 models produced over the years. The earliest example on display is a 1952 Ferrari 225 S Vignale Spider, together with another three '50s sports racing cars, all in differing hues of deep red, within the display, through to a Ferrari F12 TdF and a LaFerrari Aperta.
18 Notizie Raduno Padre-Figlio
Bridging the generations in Ferraris

Cavallino Staff

Mathieu Bonnevill


Automotive events come in all shapes and sizes but can be defined into four main categories - show, tour, track or rally. Within these broad categories, there are a plethora of themes to differentiate one from the other. It is therefore good to see a new one on the scene with a different and wholly original concept, actually a trove of new events, all focused on this perception of fathers and children driving together in a multi-day rally, sharing each other's company and enjoying the pleasure of driving on superior roads and through spectacular scenery.

On the first weekend of June was held the largest yearly Ferrari event in France. More than 500 Ferraris were announced on the Le Vigeant track, in the heart of France, in an annual event to raise money for research for cancer.

Despite the fact that Scuderia Ferrari could win neither the Constructors' title nor the Drivers' title in the 2018 Formula One Championship, the yearly Ferrari Finali Mondiali event gathered a very enthusiastic crowd for its return to Monza, Italy, twelve years after the 2006 edition there.

Any anniversary is a good enough excuse to drive

Cavallino Staff

Leslie Davies


It is not that unusual when Ferrari owners get together to share some time with their beloved cars, nor is it particularly unusual when owners of certain specific Ferrari models come together to share collective experiences, since Ferrari types are so individual and idiosyncratic from each other that it is fruitful to share one's joys and sorrows.
48 Feature Dick Morgensen's Testa Rossa
The most original red head - Raced often, never crashed, wonderful preserved

Alan Boe

Ferrari Classiche, Ron Kloetzli


Its first owner was Phoenix, Arizona, businessman, Dick Morgensen who bought it new in August, 1958.
He quicky nicknamed his TR the "Old Red Sled" and always ran it on race number 46 because that was the number on his SCCA competition license.
His best year was in 1959. Morgensen won eight races that season and had enough other high finishes to win the D Modified Championship in the Pacific Coast Driver's series.
60 In Memoriam Jess G. Pourret remembered

Arnaud Blanfuney, Pierre Coquet

Arnaud Blanfuney Archives


Jess G. Pourret was one of the greatest Ferrari historians, and it was with great sadness that we learned his recent passing. He was notably known for his great knowledge of the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinettas - TdF, SWB and GTO - on which he wrote the famous book "The Ferrari Legend - 250 GT Competition" published by a certain John W. Barnes, Jr. Publishing Inc. in 1977.
64 Letteratura The new book on Ferrari by Luca Dal Monte
Power, politics and the making of an automotive empire

Michael T. Lynch


At last, we have an English language biography of Enzo Ferrari that is fitting for the subject. The book, Dal Monte's fifth, covering over 950 pages, was released in Italy in 2016 as Ferrari Rex. As with all books, new material cascaded in after the book's Italian publication. Dal Monte was uniquely poised to take on an English language version which would include all the new material that had come to light.

74 Fotografa Phil Hill the renaissance man was there

Doug Nye

Phil Hill


Fhil Hill (1927-2008) was Ferrari's 1961 Formula One World Champion Driver - and the first, and to date only, American born sportsman to win world class motor racing's premier road racing title.
A deeply thoughtful, cultured, decent man, Phil was also a very fine and accomplished engineer, a highly succesful car restorer. Through all his racing up to 1962, Phil used his favoured Leica camera "... to show the folks back home" the motor racing scene he loved, in quality color.

95 Mercato What's next for the Ferrari Market
Some idle thoughts & comments

Cavallino Staff


The market is stagnant at the moment, there's no other way to call it. Classic cars are selling, the big ones better than others. At the auction houses, cars are reaching the low end of estimates. Much of this has to do, not with the cars themselves, but with the recent stock market fluctuations, which has everyone nervous.
