Notes On The Cars In The Mille Miglia

In the over-2-litre class the issue lay between Ferrari and Maserati, and the Maranello firm entered two 12-cylinder 3 1/2-litres as used in the Giro Sicilia, to be driven by Castellotti and Fangio, and two four-cylinder 3 1/2-litres, similar to the Sicily-winning car, to be driven by Musso and Collins. There were no radical changes to them, and only Collins carried a passenger, the others having...

XIII Gran Premio Napoli

Another Bad Day for Ferrari Naples, May 6th. It seems that neither the English nor the Italians can ever take any notice of one another's calendar, for once more the Naples Grand Prix was held the same weekend as the International Trophy at Silverstone. The Continental teams of Ferrari and Gordini divided their interests, while Maserati refrained from entering at either race. The first practice...

Ferrari Wins But Porsche The Moral Victors PALERMO, SICILY, May 11th. WITH all the flap-doodle in Italy about racing on the public roads, the Sicilians were quick to profit from the suppression of the Mile Miglia and Vicenzo Florio and his organising committee did some valiant work in their efforts to hold the Targa Florio on its traditional mountain circuit. Not only were they successful but...

Targa Florio

Sicily - 720 km. - June 10th. Unlike last year the Targa Florio was not in the World Championship series and as a result it lost a lot of its glory and the entry was small. Run over 10 laps of the 72-kilometre Little-Madonie mountain circuit the only factory entries were a Ione 3-litre Maserati driven by Taruffi, two 3.5-litre Ferraris shared by the pairs, Collins/Castellotti and Gendebien/...

Ferraris Force the Pace and Vanquish Alfa-Romeo THE Italian G.P. run over 80 laps of the 3.9 mile Monza track on September 16th saw Ferraris set the hottest pace yet, witnessed in postwar racing, and the result was an overwhelming victory for them. Long before official practice began, the Ferraris had taken their 4 1/2-litres to Monza and satisfied themselves that they could lap comfortably in 1...

17th Eifelrennen Meeting

Nurburgring, May 23rd. The annual Eifelrennen meeting on the Nurburgring track in Western Germany saw events for sports cars and Formula III cars, as well as motor-cycle races and a vast entry produced a very full day of racing. After two events for "series sports cars that were both dominated by a large collection of Porsches, the two most important events of the day took place, the first for...

The XXXIII Mille Miglia

A Personal Triumph for Castellotti In spite of popular alarums and excursions the Mille Miglia took place on April 28/29th in exactly the same form as past years, and the only differences in the route were two new by-pass roads: at Pineto, on the Adriatic coast, and San Quirico, shortly before Siena. Of the 427 entries, only 54 failed to turn up in the Piazza Vittoria in Brescia for the official...

The 1,000 Kilometre Race at Nurburgring

Adenau, May 27th. This year the A.D.A.C. had their 1,000 kilometre race inscribed in the list of events counting for the Manufacturers' Championship and as a result the greatest collection of sports cars and sports-car drivers ever seen on the Nurburgring were gathered together. With entries from all the leading factories it was a true championship event, the only doubtful point being the...

Misguided missile

ASA 1000 GT It was the small car Ferrari never made. It was always known as "Ferrarina", but neither the prancing horse nor the name appeared on it. Instead it bore a triangular badge with the letters ASA, symbol of an undertaking fuelled by enthusiasm but ultimately misguided. It was Ferrari who presented a tiny 850cc four-cylinder engine to the press in 1959, but claimed that it was merely a...
