Back at the site of the first triumph ... Silverstone and Ferrari - a meaningful link since the most successful Formula 1-team of all times achieved its first victory in a Grand Prix at the English airfield in 1951. 46 years later, celebrating Ferrari's 50th anniversary, one did commemorate this win during the Coys International Historic Festival at the end of July. Thus the UK's most important event of historic motor-racing nearly turned into a pure Ferrari-party.

Barchetta proudly presents you a selection of very rare shots from the famous Rainer W. Schlegelmilch archive, some of them never published before. His slide archive consists of more than 650.000 photographs covering the Formula One scene and sports cars & prototypes races since 1962. Due to the genius of Rainer W. Schlegelmilch, almost every picture is a piece of art as well as the fastest time machine to put you back to times when racing really deserved this name.

The days prior to the London decision
At the weekend prior to the memorable date on which Michael Schumacher was deprived of his title as 1997 Formula 1 vice-champion at London, Ferrari hosted the second and final part of the official 50th anniversary celebration in a quite unusual location ... The reason for which Ferrari obviously chose this remote spot for the event was the desire to involve entire Italy into the festivities.
