Hidenobu Tanaka and Hiroyuki Kashioka

The automobile museums (yes, there are five!) of the Matsuda Collection are located east of Mt. Fuji and situated conveniently along Route 138, just off the Tomei Highway and nearby to the entrance to the Hakone Mountains National Park. The largest of the five museums is the Ferrari Museum of Art, unique in Japan as a museum with no other subject than on our favorite marque.
34 Feature The forgotten Championship
Ferrari heard the song of the mountains, and answered in kind. A general survery of the European Mountain Championships

Jerry McDermott, Marcel Massini

Jean-Jacques Frei

One of Ferrari's other quests, however has been largely ignored by both the historical press and even enthusiasts, and this was the European Mountain Championships. Just as the top of Pike's Peak has always been a magnet for American racers, the more numerous European mountains have always attracted drivers ever since the earliest days of the motor industry.
