On January 15th Taruffi took his remarkable 1 ,750-cc Maserati-engined, twin-boom Italcorsa machine to the Appian Way near Rome and clocked 143.9 mph for 50 miles. This beats handsomely the old International Class E 50-mile record held by Gwenda Stewart’s Derby Special. But it seems that Taruffi had a run of only 23 miles and arranged for his machine to be turned on a hand-powered turntable in order to return the way he had come and complete the 50 miles. This may rank as “outside assistance” and disqualify him. But the interesting thing is that the low drag Intalcorsa no doubt reached some 160 mph on this run.

“Ferodogram”

This publication, issued by Ferodo Ltd in English, French, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, and circulated to their agents and business associates, appears this year in a slightly revised form. The January issue contained a brief history of Aston-Martin Ltd reproduced from an American journal, notes on Ferodo’s racing service and a “Personality Parade” featuring Geoff Duke. The next issue, due next month, will feature Stirling Moss and contain an article on the probable effects of the 1954 GP Formula.
