Auto Review Books Ferrari Album part 2: the racing cars

Product Code: AR151
|
$9.00
Auto Reviewoften manages to cover a marque history in one volume which at first sight seems too big for a single publication. At other times the task is too difficult, so if there is a logical division, we divide a story over two or more volumes. That is the case here; Ferrari has gone into two Albums, AR141 devoted to road cars, and this publication covering competition cars. As any enthusiast can tell you, this is not a totally clean and clear division. Yes, monoposto Formula cars fall on to one side, and luxury road cars on to the other. But many Ferrari GT road cars were produced in quantity to qualify for sports car races. Also, many Ferraris intended to be road-going sports cars were subsequently raced. Thus the line between road cars and competition cars may be blurred, so some car models feature in both Albums. We do not repeat here the story of Enzo Ferrari's early days as a mule farrier in the Great War, or his firm's changes of shareholding in later years. All of this is described in AR141, including the story of Scuderia Ferrari, which raced Alfa Romeos between the wars. We take up Ferrari competition history after the Second World War; Enzo wanted to race his cars in his own team, but he was a businessman who knew that, to finance his dream, he must sell cars to others. Enzo Ferrari had no formal academic qualifications; his engineering degree was honorary, and, conservative by nature, he was sometimes slow to take up technological advances. He even regarded the study of aerodynamics as 'only for those who could not muster enough horsepower'. Since the Formula One World Championship was established in 1950, Ferrari is the only team to compete in every season, though not always with great success. The history of Ferrari has filled many great tomes. We do not attempt to compete with them; just to encapsulate that history in an accessible form. We apologise in advance if we have left out any successes, failures or interesting anecdotes which there was not space to include here.
