ATS Tipo 100

This car took part in the Historic Grand Prix Race Association for Pre-1966 Rear-Engined Grand Prix Cars at the VSCC's Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting at Donington Park in May 2001.
It's a 1963 ATS Tipo 100, a car designed by Carlo Chiti, the former chief engineer of Ferrari who, along with several other people were fired by Ferrari in late 1961 and went on to form the ATS company. This was the only F1 car produced by ATS and you can read about it and the singular lack of success it experienced in this conceptcarz article. The owner at the time of the Donington Park race was Philip Walker and it was driven in the race by Andrew Wolfe.
