Friday's Ferrari

This was one of the cars featured in a display of cars as a Tribute to Juan Manuel Fangio by the British Racing Drivers' Club at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1994.
It's a 1949 Ferrari 166, serial number 011F, which was raced by Fangio and José Froilán Gonzáles in its early years. The programme of the event said this about the display:

'The display will also include a superb 1948 1.5 litre  Formula 1 Ferrari 166, thought to have been raced by Fangio in Argentina, and which has just been restored by Tony Merrick.'
