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.”

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.

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 attracted a good audience to watch a packed weekend of classic racing, despite the weather being a mix of sunshine and showers.

As Sunday 11 November was Remembrance Day and also the centenary of the end of the First World War, commemorative poppies were in abundance at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show over the weekend of 09-11 November. Those who fell and fought in the Great War were remembered with a 2 minute silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. If it hadn’t been for their valiant efforts and sacrifices, it is unlikely that many of the vehicles in the show would exist today.

Ferrari and Formula 1, few terms are linked more than the famous Scuderia and the top category of open wheel racing. Although now waiting for more than a decade to bring back a title to Maranello the Scuderia Ferrari is still the most successful team in the History of F1 and Ferrari is the only team to run every season since the series was introduced in 1950. Being the team principle of the Scuderia Ferrari that ran the works entries for Alfa Romeo in the 1930s Enzo Ferrari early on saw the importance of the GP series aside the sports car world championship to position his marque as the leading sport car manufacturer that it should become over the next decades.
