    The Secrets Of Enzo Ferrari: Timewatch
    Fri 23 Jan, 9:00 pm - 9:50 pm 50mins

    The name Ferrari evokes a heady mix of speed, danger and glamour. One man left a legacy of the greatest drivers and racing cars in the history of motorsport. It is a line that stretches down to current world champion Michael Schumacher. Currently, team Ferrari rule the world. This team remains the ultimate tribute to its founder, Enzo Ferrari.

    Since his death in 1988, Ferrari has become the stuff of myth. In his life he helped create heroes, a sport, an industry. He belongs to a time when motor racing was the most glamorous and most dangerous sport on earth. Enzo Ferrari had a dream, and to create his dream he would test, he would manipulate, he would shape everyone around him. Ferrari's life story is a story of sex, of fast cars, of danger, and above all of death. His had a famously secretive life. Talking to those closest to him, as well as a clutch of motor racing legends such as Schumacher, Stirling Moss and Jody Scheckter, Timewatch lifts the veil on the secrets of Enzo Ferrari.

    What an excellent programme!! :D I hope you guys on the mainland get to see it one day....

    One of the last lines of the commentary went something like this:

    Ferrari works at the same levelas myth and religion. It's something you believe in. It's something you live for.

    I hope someone out there had the technology to burn it to disk.

    Cheers, MARK

    It was indeed an excellent programme. Great story in just 50 minutes.

    Enzo Ferrari - the movie, is also a movie about the live of Enzo Ferrari. But the vision is a littlebit different, but really great to see them both.

    That was a great show! Nice way to start the weekend..the Feb issue of Evo will be a good way to end it if you can get a copy..roadtesting F40 vs F50 vs Enzo vs 288 GTO.

    My choice (on looks alone, sadly have not driven any yet):

    288 GTO (gorgeous, lovely, stunning, 308 on steroids)
    F40 (Raw power)
    Enzo - undecided but mean as hell
    F50 - soap dish

    Hi Marcus,

    I bought that copy of Evo....the "special Ferrari Issue". Unfortunately our car was not reviewed (nor yours Wolfgang).

    Did you enjoy the weather over the weekend? I stayed indoors and sulked! ;)

    Cheers, MARK

    Hi Simon,

    BRILLIANT! :D Yup, I understand your concern about "the olds". I'm still trying to train my mother to use text messaging, but have so far been unsuccessful. :rolleyes:

    Cheers, MARK

    Happily we were away for the weekend staying with some friends in Nottingham, so there would have been no Ferrari driving even if the weather was ok! Got very muddy walking through the woods though!

    Was a nice program indeed, but not very new. Used quite a lot of footage of other videos I have and no new details emerged. Just the story that have been told dozens of times. Doesn't mean it is not great to watch; I also taped it ;-)

    Niels - are you using a Sky Digital satellite receiver/decoder? I have my German sat receiver here with me and want to rig it up so that I can still enjoy RTL's brilliant Grand Prix coverage (despite the 20 minute ad-break just after the start of every race!).

    Cheers, MARK
