Where History and Future Meet ... Museo Storico Alfa Romeo

Book Review ... 10kgs Phill Hill ... Inside Track

Strengthen your bookcase! After a long gestation period the Phil Hill “Inside Track” twin volume book, all 10kgs of it, has been published. The pair of massive hardback books are supplied in a cloth covered slip case, and are divided chronologically into two phases of his career, the first spanning the years 1951-1956 and the second 1957-1962. These were essentially the years that he drove Ferrari’s, both privately and as a works driver, along with many other marques, culminating in him becoming the USA’s first F1 Drivers’ World Champion in 1961.

“La Macchina del tempo – Museo Storico Alfa Romeo” is the heart of a genuine “brand center”, with a bookshop, café, Documentation Center, test drive track, events venues and a show-room with a customer delivery area: it is the perfect bond between past, present and future. In Arese, next to Milan city center and the Expo area.

Laurent Auxietre and Christophe Schmidt, two well established experts in the classic car industry, will make their debut as Auxietre & Schmidt at the world acclaimed Rétromobile week in Paris, from February 6th to 11th.
With great results achieved on exceptional motorcars in recent years, they are today taking their collaboration to the next level, creating a new company dealing with the highest quality automobiles: "We pride ourselves in working with passion and consigning some of the most significant motorcars, both classic and recent, as well as meeting the people behind them."

Enzo Ferrari was born 120 years ago ... The Enzo Ferrari Museum is celebrating the anniversary with a photo exhibition

“It seems incredible to think that Enzo Ferrari was born in the 19th century,” says Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne. “His lesson is more relevant than ever and his modernity unquestionable. He was a man with extraordinary vision and ability to manage people and resources as well as a strong entrepreneurial spirit and exceptional courage. One wonders what he could have achieved if he had had access to today’s technical resources and knowledge. The mark that he left on the world remains a source of pride for all of us at Ferrari and for the whole of Italy.”

Hans Herrmann Racing driver from Stuttgart celebrates his 90th birthday

Hans Herrmann, one of the most successful and popular racing drivers to join the Porsche AG works team, will be celebrating his 90th birthday this year on February 23. The endurance and Monoposto specialist, born in Stuttgart in 1928, is regarded as one of the most reliable and consistent race drivers of all time. In the course of his motor sport career, Hans Herrmann won more than 80 overall and best of class victories, most of them for Porsche.

First a little history revision on the Caramulo museum - it is situated in the spa town of the same name, high in the hills of the Caramulo mountain range, about 120kms south east of Porto in Portugal. The art and car museum was the brainchild of the brothers Abel and Joao Lacerda, who loved their town and wanted to give it something that would attract visitors, and keep it alive, after the sanatorium that had been its main source of employment and income closed in the early fifties.

And the Trofeo BMW Group goes to: the Ferrari 335 Sport manufactured in 1958. The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2018 in Cernobbio, Northern Italy, was today crowned with the presentation of the “Best of Show”, awarded to the front-engine sports racing car owned by Andreas Mohringer from Austria. The presentation of the award provided the magnificent culmination of the beauty contest for historic vehicles staged jointly by the BMW Group and the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este under the motto “Hollywood on the Lake”.

The Museo Lamborghini is situated to the right of the main entrance of the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, which is a historic small town in the countryside, approximately mid way between Bologna and Modena. A bonus of its location right on the factory premises is that one will see cars being taken out on test, and maybe even spot the odd prototype. The factory is on the main SP 255, Via Modena, on the outskirts of the town, but within walking distance of the historic centre, and is still the site on which Ferruccio Lamborghini established the original factory in 1963.

Porsche will be giving itself an excellent present for the 70th anniversary of its sports cars: the 911 Speedster Concept is a road-ready study of an open-top and particularly exciting sports car. It forges a link between the very first Porsche 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster, which received its operating permit on June 8, 1948, and the Porsche cars of today.

Formula 1 ... Austrian Grand Prix ... Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel on the podium with Jos Verstappen

It looked like being a tough race, what with penalties and problems at the start, but it ended with both Scuderia Ferrari men on the podium. Kimi finishing second ahead of Seb was not something that would have been predicted going into the race. The result was down to the drivers of course, but also to a great job from the team, a well planned strategy and an SF71H which seemed particularly good at managing its tyres.

Ferrari SP38 ... the creation from the One-Off programme ... will be displayed at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

Under a bright sun, the competition at the Château de Coppet brought together 85 historic cars spread across 15 classes of excellence – all defined by the Chairman of the Jury, Adolfo Ordi Jnr, (member of the Jury of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy) alongside the Honorary Chairman of the Jury, Ed Gilbertson (Honorary Judge of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elégance in the USA).

One of Most Desirable in World Comes to Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction

The Ferrari SP38, the latest offspring from Ferrari’s One-Off programme, has been unveiled at Fiorano where, after the ceremonial handover to one of Ferrari’s most dedicated customers, the car was immediately put through its paces in a series of hot laps.

Motor Trend named it one of the five greatest Ferraris of all time, Sports Car International called it one of the top 10 sportscars of the 1960s, Top Speed said it’s more attractive than the 250 GTO, Road & Track simply called it “gorgeous,” and that’s just the beginning. The Ferrari 250 GT Short Wheel Base (SWB) Berlinetta is unquestionably one of the greatest sports cars ever made.

The Gaisberg in Salzburg / Austria is the local recreation area of the Mozart-Town and a hike up the hill to overlook the city and the nearby Alps is one of the favourites both for locals and visitors, Almost 90 years ago the “Gaisbergbahn”, a cog railroad up the hill finally was replaced by a public road built in times of recession to bring work just as at the famous Nuerburgring in the Eiffel. And like many other passes built during this time it was immediately used as venue for a new hill climb and therefore 1929 saw the first storm up the hill.
