Friday's Ferrari

On 21 August 2015 I showed a photograph of one of the two 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa cars which took part in the British Empire Trophy race at Oulton Park in April 1958. Here's a photograph of the other one.
This was the one entered for Freddy Rousselle - the race was run as two heats and a final and Freddy Rousselle didn't manage in his heat to qualify the car for the final. World Sports Racing Prototypes says that this car is serial number 0736TR and that Alain de Changy's car at Oulton Park was 0724TR, but the record shows that the car which finished sixth at Le Mans in 1958 (0736TR) didn't have the central red stripe (whereas 0724TR did), so it looks as if the World Sports Racing Prototype record is incorrect and the car above is 0724TR.
