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.

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.

2017 Major Auction Results ... Top Seller

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.
