Silverstone, August 1, 1999
Europe’s most important historic racing event?
Europe’s probably most important event for historical motor racing, the International
Historic Festival at Silverstone, will be hosted again by renowned auction house Coys of
Kensington. The event will – as always – include numerous races for GT cars, sports
prototypes and monoposti.
Shell Ferrari Maserati Challenge
The Shell Ferrari Maserati Challenge will be part of the meeting again, although only disc-
brake cars are eligible this time. Entries will probably include Ed Davies’ 512 M s/n 1024
and Patrick Stieger’s 512 M s/n 1018, to name two of the probably fastest cars in the field
consisting of about 30 Ferrari and two Maserati. While www.Maranello.cc contributor
Gregor Schulz was told by Jacky Ickx during the recent Ferrari Racing Days at the
Nürburgring that he (Ickx) would not attend the Silverstone event, the Challenge
organizers of Peter Auto announced him to be one of the guest starters. We will see.
Coys of Kensington Auction
Of course the variety of activities at the famous Buckinghamshire race track will again
include – aside of several car club meetings including the one of the FOCGB – an auction
performed by Coys of Kensington. The following Ferrari automobiles have been entered
