A Swede Swerves Through Sicilians / Targa Florio, Italy / 26 April 1964
Painted blue and yellow to represent its Swedish driver, Ulf Norinder negotiates his Ferrari 250 GTO through a gaggle of spectators on the third lap of the 1964 Targa Florio. Along with his driving partner, Picko Troberg, he would go on to place 9th out of 28 finishers.
Already one of the toughest tracks in the world, the race was made significantly more dangerous by locals who would crowd the circuit and cause mayhem for the drivers. It was for this reason the Targa Florio was ended in 1977.
