In the March issue of Motor Sport Nigel Roebuck discusses the Monza 1960 F1 race and the rear-engined GP Ferraris. He states about the 246P that Ginther raced in Monaco: “Neither Hill nor Wolfgang von Trips so much as tried the new car, which finished sixth in the race and never raced again.”
Although I have no quarrel with this statement as such, I still own a photograph that I took at the Zandvoort practice the following week, where the car is run as a `T-car’, with (as far as I can determine) von Trips driving.
Another remark on the same theme. You suggest that Mr Ferrari may have copied the 246P to a significant degree from the Centro-Sud Cooper-Maserati.
Was making a Squalo engine available for use in the Scuderia Castellotti Cooper his way to ‘undercover test drive’ a Cooper?
