In Arese, next to Milan city center and the Expo area.

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.

When people think of Ferrari today they immediately think of Pinin Farina as well as for decades now the design studio in Torino is responsible for most of the creations leaving the factory in Maranello. But going back into the early years of Ferrari another famous Carrozzeria becomes to mind as one of the starting points of the myth of the Prancing Horse, both in the design of exciting sports car as well as the successful race car manufacturer under the banner of the Scuderia Ferrari: Touring of Milano.

Ferrari opens its first Tailor Made Center in the United States today in New York City.  The only space of its kind in the Americas, this new Center continues the long-standing tradition of car customization and personalization that began at the factory in Maranello in the 1950s and later grew into the inception of the Tailor Made Center in 2011, followed by the Shanghai Tailor Made Center in 2014.

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 29th Cavallino Classic is on its way....Every January the first major concours of the year happens in Palm Beach at the famous Breakers Hotel attracting Ferraristi from all over the world to the (mostly) sunny and warm winter domicile in Florida. The event as we know it today consists not only of the main event on Saturday but an additional multi-marque concours at the Mar-a-Lago club as well as receptions and the track days.

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.

Today was the big day of the 29th Cavallino Classic with the annual Concours at the Breakers. And what a Concours it was ... Once again one could see that every event is very much dependent on the weather and it became rarely clearer than comparing last years event with today. Last year the concours featured one of the most exciting race car displays on the upper lawn but the constant rain on Saturday and Sunday kept most of the visitors from the field and so one could see a lot of covered Ferrari standing alone in the rain.

The 29th edition of the annual Cavallino Classic came to an end with the Classic Sports Sunday at the Mar-a-Lago Country Club. After the two opening days on the nearby Palm Beach and the evening receptions the multi-marque concours followed the Ferrari concours at the Breakers on Saturday. Whereas the Breakers Concours is a properly IAC/PFA judged event the Sunday is more a relaxed get together with some awards then a real competition.

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.

Ferrari’s 2020 challenger is called the SF1000, reflecting the fact that, at some point this season, the Scuderia will be the first team ever to take part in 1000 Formula 1 Grands Prix, in this the year that the top racing category celebrates its 70th anniversary. The SF1000, built entirely in Maranello, was launched tonight at the Romolo Valli Municipal Theatre in the town of Reggio Emilia. It was a gala evening that celebrated the marque’s Italian identity, in a setting that reflected the essence of Italy in terms of the national flag, art, architecture and music.

Two of the main booths in the middle of the main hall are the ones from the London dealers Gregor Fisken and Max Girardo. Whereas Fisken is a fixed one for more than a decade the one of Girardo is only that big for the second year after taking over the open space that was left by JD Classics. Both of them had 14 cars on display and Fisken always brings a very colorful mix ranging from Cricklewood Bentleys, a very rare supercharged Squire on the pre-war side over the 1950s racers like the Jaguar C-Type or Maserati A6 GCS, the popular 1960s GT cars like the Ferrari 275 Competizione to more modern racers like the Audi R8 or the Ferrari 550 Maranello.

Olympia London is a fitting venue for a classic car show, as it played host to the British International Motor Show in its formative years between 1905 and 1936, apart from the First World War years. It was the subject of a sympathetic £40 million refurbishment programme to celebrate its 125th anniversary, which was completed in 2013. The large domed glass roof of the Grand Hall bathes the exhibition space in natural light, whilst the ornate balustrades just below, running around the perimeter balcony provide a nice classic period feeling.
