The Swedish Grand Prix

A Maserati Victory Kristianstad, August, 11th. Although the race in Sweden was entitled Grand Prix, it was for sports-cars and had the importance of counting towards the Manufacturers' Championship.

Continental Notes

Before the International Trophy meeting at Silverstone the Scuderia Ferrari were rapidly making history, for out of nine events in which the factory team competed they won eight, these being the Argentine, Mendoza, Agadir, Dakar, Sebring, Giro Sicilia, Syracuse and the Mille Miglia.
