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.”

Museu do Caramulo – Ferrari 70 Anos de Paixao Motorizada

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.

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.

Formula 1 ... British Grand Prix ... Seb first and Kimi third on rivals’ home turf

The best race of the year so far, ended with a win for Scuderia Ferrari, which sees Seb Vettel increase his lead by 7 points to 8 in the Drivers’ championship and the team extend its advantage by 10 points to 20 in the Constructors’. Despite some neck pain Seb secured his fourth win of the season and team-mate Kimi Raikkonen made a good recovery following a collision shortly after the start. The SF71H proved to be the car to beat, even if that had not seemed the case going into this event.

Monterey Motorsport Pre Reunion

The Monterey car week is on! After a year of waiting the Monterey Peninsula is again in the focus of the classic car world with countless events over ten days. Built around the annual Concours d´Elegance at Pebble Beach the car week hosts numerous smaller concours and gatherings ranging from the Little Cars Show for micro cars to the exotics on Cannery Row for the latest supercars, single marque events like the Legends of the Autobahn to social meetings like the Quail Lodge Motorsport Gathering. For those willing to spend some serious money several auction houses including the top sales of Bonhams, Gooding and RM Sotheby´s will show their offerings in the coming days.

Concours on the Avenue 2018 ... Best of Show was presented in the late afternoon with the Lamborghini taking the top laurels

After the racing last weekend at the nearby Weathertech Laguna Seca Raceway the Concours week is now officially under way after today´s Concours on the Avenue in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Unlike all the other events during the week this is a free concours attracting the masses from normal tourists coming by chance plus those making their way from all around the world to attend the car week. For the first time this week cars will be seen on the Ocean Avenue but unlike the posh Pebble Beach Concours entrants that could be seen on Thursday the Concours on the Avenue is much more a cars&coffee meeting attracting all sorts of cars from the small Austin Minis to the American muscle cars in different classes

The Quail Lodge - A Motorsport Gathering ...
 Lancia Aurelia PF200C named Best of Show

As soon as the spectators joined the fun at 10 am the sun also came through the clouds and the rest of the day was fine weather. Since a few years the grounds of the Lodge feature two greens on either side of the road and this year the side stage hosted the class of the “Great Ferraris”. Always one of the most spectacular displays the show spanned cars from the early 166MM Touring Barchetta alongside the Le Mans winning 250 TR from the Kadoorie stable, an original 275 GTB/4 N.A.R.T. Spider, the Pinin Prototype as well as the 500 TRC as seen on the tour to the latest TDF models including a taylor made bare aluminium car.

European sportscars dominated the sale and led to the smashing of several existing world auction records. New model benchmarks were set by the striking 1953 SIATA 208 S Spider – 1 of only 37 built – that sold for $1,655,000; the exquisite 1928 Bentley 6½-Liter Open Sports Tourer by Barker – the sole surviving example – that was bought by an American collector for $1,655,000; and the elegant 1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Record Sport Coupe de Ville – with one-off coachwork by Saoutchik – that achieved $962,000, to name but a few examples.

Multiple World Records Achieved at Bonhams’ 21st Annual Auction of Monterey Car Week

Tonight in Monterey, California RM Sotheby’s made auction history when a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, chassis no. 3413GT, long considered to be the ‘holy grail’ of the collector car world sold for $48.4 million, becoming the most valuable car ever sold at auction. There were cheers and applause when five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell stepped out of the car after driving it across the auction block in front of an overflowing salesroom, followed by gasps as auctioneer Maarten ten Holder opened the bidding at the unprecedented level of $35 million. Three collectors bidding via telephone competed for the car, sometimes moving in million dollar increments before it hammered after nearly ten minutes for $44 million, or $48,405,000 with fees.
