Hockenheim, 30th April 2006
The Jim Clark Revival meeting came to a close at Hockenheim on this the main day of the international event
featuring historic cars, including those from Ferrari. Testing themselves against the German circuit were drivers in
the European Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, a championship which, since 1999, has also been open to
Maseratis. The event also featured a display of 10 Ferrari single-seaters from the past, which was coordinated by
Maranello's F1 Clienti department.
This was the season curtain-raiser for the continental series and it saw wins in grids A+B (single-seaters,
sports-prototypes and GT cars fitted with drum brakes) for local driver Max Werner in race-1 in his 1955 Maserati
300 S and for another 300 S (1954,) out on track in the hands of British driver, David Franklin, in the second race.
As for group C (cars with disc brakes,) wins in the two races were split between the 1981 Ferrari 512 BB LM of
Dutchman, John Bosch and the 1970 Ferrari 512 M of France's Michel Fertè.
The European series of the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge will be back on track over the weekend of 4th June in
