A matter of moment Carlo Abarth may have had fixed ideas about engine placement – but his cars won plenty of races Over the past few months I have been closely involved with what was Fabrizio Violati’s Maranello Rosso Collection of Ferraris and Abarths in San Marino. When former mineral water magnate Violati died in January 2010 he was the longest-term owner of any Ferrari 250GTO. Obviously in...

Pantomime horse... Ferrari stumbled ahead of the 2014 British Grand Prix, but theatrical mishaps have long been part of the team’s fabric As Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen failed to survive first qualifying for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, it became apparent that Ferrari had screwed up. It wasn’t alone: Williams got into the same muddle about which tyres to mount during a rain-...

Continental notes

Grand Prix Politics LAST MONTH we left the scene in a state of deadlock between the Formula One constructors and the Grand Prix organisers, with the constructors asking for a guaranteed total of starting money and prize money for a field of 20 cars of around k,100000 and the organisers offering a total of about £53,000. Since then the constructors have come down and the organisers have gone up,...

Ferrari 512 S & M, by Christian Huet. Cavalliera, £40.00. Few bluffs have ever been so comprehensively called as the CSI's back in 1969. Back then the World Sports-Prototype Championship catered for one-off racing cars with a maximum capacity of three litres, under the Group 6 rules. Group 4 catered for 'off the shelf' machines with a maximum capacity of five litres and a production run of at...

Surer tops packed Mountain 'Grand Prix'

The third running of the Ollon-Villars hillclimb retro attracted a magnificent entry of over 200 cars and bikes headed by an Ensign N180 Formula 1 car, which was reunited with former grand prix driver Marc Surer. Although not a competitive event, a field of more than 120 cars tackled the 8km hill as the venue celebrated its 50th anniversary. First used in 1953, the so-called Swiss Mountain Grand...

Brother's pride

Thirteen years after opening to the public, the Schlumpf brothers’ secret hoard has been regrouped. Bugattis remain centre-stage, but D McK has been inspecting the post-war racing machiner also on view. Thousands of words have been written over the past twenty years about the Musee National de l'Automobile — the infamous Schlumpf Collection — at Mulhouse in Alsace, France. The unique collection...

Hillclimb Ferrari

Sir, John Hickman enquires (Readers' Letters, October) whether the 212 European Hillclimb Championship-winning Ferrari driven by Peter Schetty still exists I am sure that it does! At the end of 1970, having completed two successful seasons hilIclimbing a 250M (see April issue), I was looking tor something even faster, preferably a Ferrari and the late Col Ronnie Hoare was kind enough to open...

Around & about

Comment on the Racing and Club SceneWhither Formula 5000? One class of racing that has not been mentioned in this column for some time is Formula 5000—the category of racing which uses chassis similar to Formula One cars but has power from 5-litre production based engines instead of 3-litre pure racing units. The Formula started in the United States, where it continues to thrive, while in Britain...

Legends in their own lap times

Sports car racing is in the throes of a recovery, but it seems unlikely it will ever again reach such charismatic heights as it did 25 years ago The whoosh of tyres sliding hopelessly on wet tarmac is something every driver fears. So was the thump! as Barrie Smith's Lola T70 smote the protective banking in front of the Grovewood Suite at Brands Hatch. No mean driver, Smith had lost the Lola all...

Daytona Six-Hours

Ferrari foremost again Daytona, Florida, February 6th. For a number of years a rather unnecessarily long 24-hour event, this year following the recent FIA ruling, the organisers of the Daytona event decided to shorten their race to a more compact six hours and consequently it did at least prove exciting in parts. This event remained as the second round of the World Manufacturers' Sports Car...
