Ferrari Album Part 2- Racing Cars

Details

Yes, monoposto Formula cars fall on to one side and luxury road cars on to the other. But many Ferrari Grand Touring road cars were produced in quantity to qualify for GT sports car races, and on the other hand, many Ferraris intended to be road-going sports cars were subsequently raced. This means that the line between road cars and competition cars is more blurred than we might like. In this book we take up Ferrari competition history after WWII; Enzo wanted to race cars in his own team, but he was a businessman who knew that, to finance his dream, he needed to sell cars to others. Enzo Ferrari had no formal engineering qualifications, 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 1950 when the Formula One World Championship was established, Ferrari is the only team to compete in every season, though not always with great success.
