The fifth round of the Sports/Prototype Championship at Spa on 22nd May was won easily by Mike Parkes and Ludovico Scarflotti in a 330P3 coupe Ferrari from Sir John Whitmore and Frank Gardner in the first Alan Mann 7-litre Ford Mk. II. The better shape of the Ferrari enabled it to out-perform the Ford in the gusty conditions and its lighter weight counteracted the capacity difference. The combination, in the hands of Parkes, setting up a new absolute lap record for all categories at 3 min. 46.4 sec. (224.204 k.p.h.). An Essex Wire GT40 driven by Peter Revson and Skip Scott was third.
