Friday's Ferrari

This photograph was taken at the VSCC Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies Meeting at Donington Park in May 2001.
It's a Ferrari Dino 246 F1 and, though it's got no race numbers, only one Dino is shown in the programme of the event and that's Robin Lodge's 1959 model, chassis number 0006. It's shown in the entry list for 'The Ron Flockhart Memorial Trophy Race For Post War, Pre 61 Racing Cars' and I can't even remember if it ran in that race because the entry list for Robin Lodge shows that he nominated two alternatives, the Dino and his 1954 Lancia D50. I don't know if the Lancia was present as I haven't got a photograph of it taken on that day, but that's possibly because I spent so much time looking at and photographing the C-Type and D-Type Auto Unions which were the meeting's star attractions.
