Friday's Ferrari

The runners in the Cheshire Building Society Allcomers Race at the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting at Oulton Park in July 1987 included the car shown below.
It's Neil Corner's 1960 Ferrari Dino 246 F1 car, serial number 0007, later renumbered 0788FT. The programme of the event said this about the car:

'Favourite for the race must be Neil Corner's Dino Ferrari, which won last year, and was also the winner of the Mike Hawthorn Trophy race at Silverstone last month. It is an unusual Dino as the works rebuilt it for Tasman racing, substituting a 3-litre V12 sports car engine in place of the 2½ litre V6.'
