Friday's Ferrari

This car took part in the Louis Vuitton '50s Sports Car Race at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1995.
It's one of two 1956 Ferrari 860 Monzas that competed in this race, and this is Fritz Grashie's car, chassis number 0602M. I remember seeing photographs of this car, driven by Luigi Musso, and the sister car of Peter Collins (chassis number 0628 - since converted to a 290MM) in the 1956 Mille Miglia. Musso finished in third place and Collins was second to the 290MM of Eugenio Castellotti.
