Lancia D50

When Lancia pulled out of racing in the middle of the 1955 racing season due to financial pressures the team of D50 Formula 1 cars was passed over to Ferrari. At the time their appearance at the Gold Cup race at Oulton Park in September 1955 they were still badged as Lancias and it seemed that Ferrari had not yet carried out any modifications to the cars. This photograph, taken with a Kodak Brownie 127 camera by my brother, shows the two cars returning to the paddock at the end of the race.
This is Eugenio Castellotti's car, which finished in 7th place, and behind it is Mike Hawthorn's car which finished second in the race to the Maserati 250F of Stirling Moss.
