    Enzo really did not travel much. I think he went outside Italy when he worked for Alfa Romeo before the war. He did make it to France atleast 1 time.


    wikipedia.org

    "Enzo Ferrari spent a reserved life, and rarely granted interviews. He rarely left Modena and Maranello, except for when the annual Italian Grand Prix at Monza just outside Milan took place, or when he took a trip to Paris to broker a compromise between the warring FISA and FOCA parties in 1982"


    Another photo for today. A sad Farina sits in the Ferrari engine Indy Kurtis.

    Wikipedia strikes again? I doubt very much that Enzo went to Paris in 1982. He was 83 years old by then and hadn't left Italy for many years. More than likely they went to him at Maranello.

    Yes. You could buy a "paddock" pass for 5 bucks which got you behind the pits. Security was lax to nonexistent, and as the day wore on and cars retired (quite common back then) pit boxes were left open. Even with cars still in the race, crews didn't seem to mind the intrusion as long as you stayed out of their way.

    I haven't been back to Sebring since the seventies, but I imagine it's quite different now. I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a little bit of what is often referred to as a golden age of sports car endurance racing, 1962-1967. That period included the inaugural race of the 250 GTO (Sebring '62), Ferrari prototype domination, the Ferrari-Cobra war, and eventually the Ford GT40s, Mk IIs, etc, that dethroned Ferrari.

    A couple more shots:

    Indeed, Pedro, it might slide off the bottom lip of the banking due to not sufficient speed. Of course I've never driven at Monza but over 50 years ago I did drive my Porsche 356B Super 90 at the Autodrome de Linas-Montlhery, including laps on the banked oval that was built in something of a parabola so that your speed determined exactly how high on the banking you would run - lessen speed and the car would gently drift down to the left, increase and it would gently drift up toward the top of the banking. With a flat-out top speed of maybe 170 kph I never got much more than a bit higher than a third or halfway up!
