Friday's Ferrari

Here's a photograph of a car leaving the pit lane during a practice session for the Shell Historic Ferrari Maserati Challenge race at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1999.
It's Patrick Stieger in Engelbert Stieger's 1971 Ferrari 512 M, a car raced alongside the 512 S model by Ferrari in the 1970 Group 5 Sports Car Championship, but raced  solely by privateers in the 1971 season as Ferrari concentrated their efforts on the 312 PB. The 512 has a 5 litre V12 engine, and the car above is Chassis #1018, which was originally built as a 512 S in 1970 but converted to a Berlinetta 512 M in 1971.

I've previously shown photographs of the Ferrari 512 M on 9 January 2015 and 6 January 2017.
