Friday's Ferrari

I photographed this car in the paddock at Donington Park at the VSCC's Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting in June 2003.
It's not listed in the programme of the event and I don't recall whether or not it took part in any of the races, but it's the 1959 Ferrari Dino 246 S of Harry Leventis, chassis #0784. The car has a 2,417cc V6 engine and the body was fashioned by Carrozzeria Fantuzzi. The record doesn't show this car as appearing at this Donington Park meeting, but in April of 2003 Tony Dron drove the car in a Ferrari Maserati Challenge race at Spa where it had the race number 71. Harry Leventis drove his 1964 Ferrari Dino 206 SP in the Shell Historic Ferrari Maserati Challenge race at Donington, so it's possible that Tony Dron also drove the 246 S here.
