+1. Agree, the European road races were, and are, great.

A few years back, Napolis posted a youtube link of the 1967 Targa Florio.
The pass made by the Ferrari at 1:30 into the video is amazing.

I bookmarked that one and watch it every once in a while.

Anyone know the model of the Ferrari or the driver back in '67? (a Ferrari P3?)

Or the white car with the big wing that was being passed? (A Chaparral, maybe?)

Thanks for the heads up, JB. I've got it set on the DVR...

Good call, I think.
I found a pic on the web of a 1967 Ferrari 330 P4 Spyder (see below).
It does look like the car in the video clip, doesn't it?
In the video clip, it looks like the number "224" is displayed on the side of the car in a few frames.

Also found a picture of a Chaparral 2F (with a large wing) that was in the 1967 Targa Florio.
Drivers of the white Chaparral were Phil Hill and Hap Sharp that year.

Oustanding pics and I will set the DVR - thanks for the info!

You guys gave me an idea for an SPCA fund raiser theme ($20-25 pp includes all food, beer, wine, sodas and H20).

I am planning on hosting at our beach cabana in May.

"The MAR Mille Miglia"

I just need someone to plan and lead a route that will wind up at our beach by 1pm for the festivities. Perhaps starting at the Holy Donut?

Anyone interested in attending and/or helping w/plans?

Here's pics of past events at the beach cabana venue (outside Annapolis)
