166SC 008I "Semiaerodinamica" Pescara 48 #2 Sommer

I have recently bought this 1/43 MG model of the 166SC 008I raced by Sommer at Pescara 1948.

I have noted that the forward wings are different from the 008I configuration of 1948 Napoli GP (Sommer) and Vermicino -Rocca di Papa hillclimb (Vallone).
Unfortunately on the only pic I have (found on Millanta's book) the forward wings are covered by sun shadow.

Thank you URSOENZO
it is exactly the pic I have, but I really cannot state, looking to this photo, if the car configuration was the same of Napoli and Vermocino races or if the forward wings were actually as seen on kit model.

The wings on the model are wrong.
Below another photo from Pescara 1948, although rather bad quality, the form of the wings can be clearly spotted.

Great photo.

IMO those pieces look tacked onto the "wings" and may have been added later.

The wings had been removable, 008I very often was raced in F2 during 1948 and 1949.

Circuito Internacional de Vila Real 1951

Do anyone know the connection between Vallone/Romano and Conde de Monte Real who apparently raced the 008I at Vila Real on 1951?. For 1951 the other entrance I have for 008I is Romano at Eifelrennen Sport.
