A little Ferrari teaser!

Hi guys,
Here's a little teaser for you all (I'm sure some one will know the answer). My wife recently bouught me a framed print of the great man himself, Enzo, taken many years ago standing beside a Ferrari on what looks like a race track (or maybe a road).

It is now hung proudly on the wall in my hall, but I have a question or two..

My questions are these:
Can anyone
a) tell me where it was taken?
b) tell me when it was taken?
c) tell me what model the Ferrari is?
d) give us all any additional info on the picture.

Incidently I have no idea of the answers to any of the above, so please don't rely on me to provide the answers at the end of this thread

Thanks guys!

I don't know any of the answers Barry, but it's a wonderful photo. I love the contrast of the B&W or sepia to the red of the car.

Your Answer!

Hello Barry from the Ferrari Market Letter,

I'm Chad and I can help you with this!

The car is a 1950-1951 375 F1.

The location is Modena Aeroautodromo (Autodromo Modena).

You see it was an airport turned into a test ground/race track for Ferraris.

As the above identification of the car states... photograph probably taken in the very, very early 1950s!

Castellotti was killed there after missing the chicane and ending up in the stands while testing a Ferrari F1 car several years later.

That location is now the Enzo Ferrari Park in Modena.

Kind Regards!
Chad

Hi Chad!
Thank you!

Excellent work, took only 20 minutes to find answers to my questions. Anyone any other interesting facts to tell us about the picture or location?

Your welcome.

I imagine if you google any or all of the keywords I gave in my answer you may find a lot more than I can provide via this thread. You know, you could even google search using the image option and see if you can find additional pictures! They still had airplanes there up until at least the late 1960s as I saw a picture of an early can-am style Ferrari there with planes in the background.

I could give you (or find) books about this place for you if you wanted.

If you have any more Ferrari questions, let us know.

Chad

Enzo Ferrari one day before the 23rd. Mille Miglia 1956 at Ferrari's "courtyard area" base camp for the race in Manerbio. (Actally near the hotel of the Marzotto brothers).

Car No. 600 is Fangio's 290 MM, Chassis No. 0626, finished 4th. place

Car No. 556 is Musso's 860 Monza, Chassis No. 0602 M, finished 3rd. place

Car No. 548 is Castellotti's winning 290 MM, Chassis No. 0616, WON the Mille !

missing on the picture is Number 551, Peter Collins/Klemantaski's 860 Monza, Chassis No. 0628 M, finished 2nd.

One addition:

A 250 TdF of Gendebien/Wascher, race No 505 finished the Mille in 1956 as well. Five Ferrari's started and 5 Ferraris arrived in Brescia placed 1-5 !!

Yes, it is indeed unfortunate that DeLoreans don't reach that speed.

Chad...Are you sure its not a 340 F1? The renderings I have indicate a wide "ring" around the nose grill of the 375 where the 340 had no ring and appeared much more bulbous like the photograph.
