After almost two years of work, restoration of the 225 S chassis no. 0178ED is finally complete and the car is back in its owner’s hands. The project was a huge challenge for the Ferrari Classiche department as the car, which belongs to an Argentinean collector, arrived in Maranello in a terrible state of repair, having been partly-destroyed in a fire.

Gaisbergrennen ... Salzburg relives the historic hill climb in its 14th year

When looking into the classic car calendar the May is usually packed with many events, with only 4 weekends available lots of international and national events have to be coordinated. As we reported earlier the reschedule of the Monaco GP left a little bit of a mess in the calendar as several events were rescheduled to avoid a clash with the Historic GP, so the MM and the Villa d´Este were held the same weekend. Less flexible is the annual Gaisbergrennen in Salzburg (Austria) as it is bound to the Corpus Christi holiday as this is the only day in this time of the year where the organizers get permission to close the main road around the dome place for the city grand prix.

The 24th Festival of Speed ... The epicenter for fast and loud road and race cars of the past and present

Almost six weeks ago Goodwood was again the epicenter for fast and loud road and race cars of the past and present at the 24th Festival of Speed. What sounds like an eternity ago in the time of online media once was a normal delay for an extensive coverage of an event like this in print media and although many pictures and words spread the net for this year’s FoS in the past weeks we still want to have a look back at one of the most important dates of the year.

Elvis’ BMW 507 raced by Hans Stuck ... at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach

The glittering comeback is now following one of the most spectacular classic-car discoveries of recent times.

Pebble Beach Tour d´Elegance ... the highlight of the week

Not few think that the Tour d´Elegance of the Concours is the highlight of the week when the cars could be seen in their natural habit, on the street. Once invented to proof that the cars can actually drive further than from the trailer to the show field and maybe once over the ramp the tour not only gives those not fortunate enough to get on the field on Sunday the opportunity to see a good portion of the cars but also for all cameras a memorable image in front of the Pacific. As mentioned several time during the last days the Tour had to be redesigned after the horrible forest fires down highway one towards Big Sur.
