Date Result Event Driver # Reference
61 - Louis J.M. Gamet, La Precision Industrielle S.A., Rueil Malmaison, F via Franco-Britannic Autos Ltd, Levallois-Perret, F  

- Gamet ordered this car on 11th July, 1960 by Franco-Britannic Autos Ltd. It should have been supplied new with a competition engine having standard camshafts as well as a rear axle blocking of 8X34.

Some very interesting correspondence between Gamet and the supplying dealer Franco-Britannic Autos Ltd. still exists. Gamet was not delivered the car to the exact specification he had ordered nor was he happy with the service he had received.                

Due to the level of complaint Enzo Ferrari personally got involved and as a goodwill gesture replaced his competition engine with a very special engine from chassis no. 2001, he also authorised a 135 liter fuel tank to be installed, competition suspension and shock absorbers plus fabricated a unique style dash.
