4 Notizie Cavallino Classic IV
Ferraris came to Florida again, and it was a weekend packed with activity

David Brady


Part of the reason to bring you all down to florida in February for a Ferrari event is to enjoy the fabled sunshine and warm weather. The sun rose at Moroso Motorsports Park on Thursday morning, the warm up day for the Ferraris as well. The Ferrari Challenge drivers and teams were in town for the first race of the 1995 season, and they spent their allotted time on the track learning the course and setting up the cars.

In reality, the Ferrari 121 LM - big, fast, loud, unruly, and a handful for all but te best. A review of these vibrant machines and a special look at a particular race: Carroll Shelby and the 4.4 s/n 0558 LM at Road America in 1956.

And special it is, with a full competition set up in a 400 SA cabriolet style body. The reason? We can only speculate, and that's done with clarity and precision.
30 Feature The Ferrari F50 introduced - Revolution, not an evolution
After the longest wait, the F40 successor arrives in Geneva

It finally has arrived and it appears the wait was worth it. The recently announced F50 (for 50 years of Ferrari in the car business) is not a simple update of the Ferrari F40, good though that would have been.
Rather, the F50 can be described as a Ferrari Formula One machine with a second seat and a sports car body.
31 Feature Ferrari 412 T2 introduced - Evolution, not a revolution
Announced in Maranello, the latest formula one evolution is presented, and it's called the 412 T2

Ferrari SpA


Introduced with all the fanfare that we know and love, Ferrari presented its 1995 Formula One challenger in Maranello in early February. Although there are many changes from the 1994 car, many mandated by ongoing FIA rules revisions, the car is seen as an evolutionary model of John Barnard's 412 T1, and it is therefore called the Ferrari 412 T2.

More information surfaces on the Ferrari 250 GT LWB TDF, s/n 0879 GT. An interesting find.
34 Corse Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona
February 4-5, 1995

Spyridon Cacoutis, Keith Bluemel, Michael Mulder, Marc Sonnery


Ferrari returned to the Daytona 24 hour race after a dozen years, and if they didn't win, they certainly were the class of the field. They were faster than everyone else in qualifying, and were easily the fastest in the race, until an endemic illness took them all out, save one.
