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.

Museo Lamborghini 2016

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.

This time of the year, at the end of the season with the next one just around the corner it is time to look back over the year and the events one did attend. It is also the time to see what did not make it online in time due to a packed schedule but could well serve to get over the cold days until the classic cars are back on the road for new adventures.

The latest edition of the Classic Car Auction Yearbook, sponsored by Credit Suisse for the eleventh successive year, covering the period 01 September 2018 to 31 August 2019, as in recent years was unveiled at the Auto e Moto d’Epoca Show in Padova by the authors Adolfo Orsi and Raffaele Gazzi.

The 2019 running of the 2019 Daytona 24 Classic provided both participants and visitors with a packed racing programme between Wednesday 13 November and Sunday 17 November, with, apart from all the practice and qualifying sessions, a sixteen race programme. This ran surprisingly well, despite a number of full course yellows, and rather chilly and sometimes misty weather conditions over the main 24 race schedule on the Saturday and Sunday.

Sixty years ago, the 5000 GT, a 2+2 coupé, was presented at the Turin Motor Show and was the undisputed star of the event.
Maserati now celebrates the anniversary of this extraordinary car, built to the specific request of the Shah of Persia, Reza Pahlavi. Just 34 cars of this model were built at the Viale Ciro Menotti plant in Modena, with bodywork added by Italy's top coachbuilders of the period.

The main current themed exhibition running at the Museo Ferrari in Maranello is titled Hypercars (L’Evoluzione Dell’Unicita/The Evolution of Uniqueness), the name being self explanatory. It shows the journey of Ferraris limited production, ultimate performance through from the GTO (288) of 1984, through the F40, F50 and Enzo, to the current LaFerrari and its track-only evolution, the FXX-K Evo. Also included in the line-up is a styling mannequin of the unique P80/C, constructed as part of the company’s special projects operation.

I have often seen cars from the Museo Nicolis at classic car shows, and have also been recommended to visit the museum, but time constraints when travelling in Italy have always kept it on the “to do” list. However, during a recent visit, whilst returning to Verona airport I found the time to make a visit, and thus at long last put a tick in the box.

The car as a work of art exceeding the original purpose of transportation dates back a long time. What started with the numerous Concours of Elegance showing the beauty of the Automobile Design in the 1930s during the high of the coachbuilt luxury car became a common approach by some to the theme of classic cars today. Many cars share their home in collections of connoisseurs who also have a major interest in art and design. The design of a motor car in the world of art is not only accepted since cars like the Cisitalia 202 made their way into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York but already since the early 1950s when the MOMA started the first exhibition of cars with “Eight Automobiles” paying tribute to the influence of car design to the modern society.

The 58th edition of the Rolex 24 at Daytona was held over the weekend of 25 – 26 January, held in fine dry conditions, after chilly and damp weather on the Wednesday and Thursday during the practice sessions, definitely much more amenable than the torrential rain of the 2019 edition. It was preceded by the 4 Hour BMW Endurance Challenge Race, part of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenges Series, on the Friday afternoon, together with the first two rounds of the Ferrari Challenge North America Series, both evening races on the Thursday and Friday, the first of which was the only race to be run on a wet track.

It has been a while since we last reported on an international event, more precisely it was March with the Amelia Island Concours. Since then a lot of events had to be cancelled or postponed to next year due to the current situation. Many organizers took the decision early on, others tried to get through until the last possible moment in order to make all the efforts worth spent over the last 12 months. Daily new cancellations were reported making planning not only for the entrants and organizers, but also for the visitors very difficult. And even if an event happens these days travel restrictions might lead to a late change in plans.

Concours of Elegance 2020 ... giving the classic car world the first show open to public

A 1959 BMW 507, first owned by King Constantine II of Greece, will grace the elegant seaside resort of Knokke-le-Zoute as the top lot, with an estimate of €1,900,000 – 2,300,000, in the Bonhams Zoute Sale on Sunday 11 October 2020. King Constantine’s BMW 507
The 507 was one of the most sought-after, and indeed expensive, convertibles of the 1950s, rivalled only by the far larger production Mercedes 300SL, beloved by celebrities and car aficionados. Alain Delon, Ursula Andress, Elvis Presley, John Surtees and the Aga Khan were among the most notable of the exclusive group of 252 owners.

The 2020 edition of the Salon Privé Concours d’Elegance presented by AXA, was probably the largest and lengthiest motoring gathering in the United Kingdom since the introduction of the various, and constantly changing, social distancing regulations due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As with many events, travel restrictions from a number of countries resulted in some cancellation of entries, but despite this the organisers still put together a broad ranging field of cars and motorcycles.

A unique Ferrari has been seen lapping Fiorano today during a brief yet intense shakedown. While the V12 engine note reverberating around the track may have sounded familiar, the car’s arresting looks are unique although guaranteed to strike a chord with the marque’s aficionados. With its Rosso Magma finish and sophisticated racing livery, the new Ferrari Omologata is a clear descendent of Ferrari’s great GT tradition spanning seven decades of history.

The new MC20 (MC for Maserati Corse and 20 for 2020, the year of its world première and the start of the Brand’s new Era) is the Maserati everyone was waiting for. It is a car with incredible aerodynamic efficiency, which conceals a sporty soul, with the new Nettuno engine, a 621 horsepower V6 with torque of 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) that delivers 0-100 km/h acceleration in under 2,9 seconds (0 – 60 miles in under 2.9 seconds) and a top speed over 325 km an hour (202 miles per hour).  An engine that signals Maserati’s return to producing its own power units after a hiatus of more than 20 years.

The Ferrari Portofino M, the evolution of the Prancing Horse’s 2+ GT spider, the Ferrari Portofino, was unveiled today. In a move unprecedented in the Maranello marque’s 70-year-plus history, the new car’s premiere took place entirely online. The build-up to the unveiling included the sending out of a series of newsletters to clients over recent weeks at the end of which they were given access to a platform containing exclusive videos illustrating the concept behind the car, its restyling and main technical contents.

All or nothing....Usually the Goodwood main events, namely the Festival of Speed at Goodwood House and the Revival on the racing circuit, are known to be the biggest crowd pullers of the entire classic car season with well over 150000 visitors attending. Numbers that seem to be from a different era when looking at the events in the times of Covid-19. This year most of the events had to be cancelled, be it concours events or trade shows whereas some race meetings happened with exclusion of the public.

Yesterday we reported on the Goodwood SpeedWeek taking place without the usual 150 thousand visitors and we see something missing, today we have to face the most unusual Mille Miglia in modern times. Being in the centre of the latest raise in numbers of infection of the recent pandemic a nightly curfew is contrasting the trade show in Padua as well as the most famous race in the world, the Mille Miglia. What normally happens in the Whitsun holiday season in May and attracts masses of cabriolet and classic car drivers from all over Europe with the additional enthusiastic local visitors now faces the most difficult situation of a second wave coming over the continent.

93 years ago the first of the original thousand miles through Italy was held and within the 30 years of existence the endurance race on open roads became an institution in the sports car championship contrasting circuit racing as the Nuerburgring or Spa 1000 km. Maybe the older Targa Florio had a similar character with its 148 km lap but it was the MM that created legends like Nuvolari, Caracciola or Stirling Moss, the last of the winners that left us earlier this year.
