Friday's Ferrari

This car took part in the Ron Flockhart Memorial Trophy race at the SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2005.
It's Tony Smith's 1960 Ferrari Dino 246 F1, chassis #0788F, and it's the car in which Phil Hill won the last Formula One Grand Prix race to be won by a front-engined car. That was the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in 1960 when the major British teams boycotted the race because it was run using the combined road and banked oval circuit which they deemed to be unsafe.
