    I have recently found on an old magazine issue a picture of the 1951 edition winner: Stagnoli with race number #146

    This finding puts in doubts the the following picture usually addressed as Stagnoli Bolzano Mendola 1951

    Effectively the front additional air inlet were fitted only on 1950 configuration, so this picture surely was shot during 1950: according the stats the car was modified by Zagato after Aoasta San Bernardo 1950 (06/08/50) and it was firstly entered with the new body at Senigallia (20/08/50). I have also excluded the Trieste-Opicina and the Bologna-Raticosa since on the mentioned pic the landscape is doubtless alpine.

    Finally one friend of mine send me the Bracco's pictures of Aosta_San Bernardo 1950

    The stone posts are the same, the bend seems the same and the highlighted trees are identical: so the pictures showing 018M #62 should be addressed to the Bolzano Mandola 1950 edition: 16/07/1950 sport car over 1100cc 1st STAGNOLI Antonio 1 26'27'' 4/5 (76,859 kmh).

    Provided that my considerations could be considered acceptable, the 018M should have been modified before 16/07/1950: it would mean the that picture reported on "Ferrari By Zagato" book as the berlinetta #38 018M Aosta San Bernardo 1950, could be wrongly addressed.

    I have correct the last part of my post that was obviously uncorrect

    According another friend of mine the picture showing the 018M with #38 is in fact the Parma Berceto

    I have to rewiev the book "Aosta-Gran San Bernardo 1920-1957", but I am quite sure the the Bracco's pic is correctly addressed. I have another pic showing cortese's 166 with the same stone posts one the side (in the old days these sotnes were different from one mountian road to the other)
    The second pic, showing the 018M#62 [/QUOTE]http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/7135/forots2.jpg[/QUOTE] cannot be the 1951 since the front air additional inlet disappeared at the end of 1950; furthermore the pictures on magazine article (August 1951 issue) clearly report the 018M#146 as the winner of Bolzano Mendola 1951 edition

    I have the book: piloti biellesi which has the careers of Bracco and Maglioli.

    In this book the car whit no. 80 is pictured on page 51 and refers to the Aosta - Gran San Bernardino race of august 6th 1950.

    Is the same picture as refered to above.
