Friday's Ferrari

This car took part in the Cheshire Building Society Allcomers Race at the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting at Oulton Park in July 1987.
It's the 1960 Ferrari Dino 246 F1 of Neil Corner, original serial number 0007, renumbered 0788FT in 1961 when used for Tasman racing, then back to 0788F when restored to original specification. Along with the Aston Martin DBR4 and Scarab F1 car this was one of the last of the front-engined Formula One cars, made obsolete by the rear-engined revolution started by Cooper a couple of years earlier.
