Friday's Ferrari

One of the cars in the Ferrari Feature at the Christie's International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1992 was Nick Mason's 1978 Ferrari 312 T3.
The programme of the event had this to say about the car:

3     312 T3
Mid-engined flat-12; 3 litres; 510bhp at 12,000rpm; four
valves per cylinder; twin ohc; fuel injection; all-round
independent suspension, introduced 1978 as further
development of 312T; transverse gearbox car introduced
1975. Driven by Gilles Villeneuve in many grands prix in
1978; winner Canadian GP.

Here's the car (serial number 034) at Luffield Corner, being driven in a demonstration run by Jody Scheckter. The car behind it is the 1969 Ferrari 246 FL Tasman (serial number 010) being driven by John Surtees.
