Big Accident at Monterey Historics  
 
The F399 (1999) Ferrari of Frits Kroymans (the Dutch Ferrari importer) broke in two at the drivers knees when it was ripped by the tire barrier on drivers right on exit of Turn 6. The driver, Kroymans himself, was okay and able to get out of the car himself. After he got out of the car the savety crew put an ice pack on one of his legs. Later he walked to the safety vehilce. Luckely he didn't hit the barriers very fast.
Just after the crash two other Formula one cars were approaching him on high speed. Luckaly they were able to avoid a crash. Two of the drivers stopped to help him, even before the savety car came.

Double victory...and World Championship  
 
From start to finish the two Ferraris were in the lead. They overtook most of the field and showed that they really rule this championship. Wich they, for the constructors, also won today! And that makes it six times in a row!
After the first pitstop there were some worries with the team, because one of the fuellines for refueling the cars had leaked some benzine. But before the next pitstops the team fixed it and for precausion also replaced the other one. Schumacher had in the end 44 seconds lead of Fernando Alonso, who won the race last year. Montoya became fourth and the two BARs Button and Sato became fifth and sixth. Pizzonia was seventh and last for the points was Fisichella in his Sauber.
Both McLarens were out of points, Coulthard finished as ninth and Raikkonen had to retire.

4x Ferrari F1 at Zandvoort  
 
Today there were four Formula one Ferraris driving fast at the circuit of Zandvoort, The Netherlands. All the cars, an Eddie Irvine 1999 and 3 x Michael Schumacher (2000, 2001, 2002), come from the private collection of John Bosch. He was driving his newest car...the 2002 WorldChampion car of Michael Schumacher. He was trying to beat the laprecord at Zandvoort, set by Badoer also in the 2002 Ferrari. The record was, and is, still set at 1.19.80...John Bosch tried very hard and even went through some gravel at his attempt to beat the record, but got stuck at 1 minute 22 seconds. A great achevementl, let that be heard, for a driver that is not a professional F1-driver.
The other three cars were driven by Jacky Ickx, Rene Arnoux and Jan Lammers. Lammers, who still races the Dome Judd, set his personal fastest lap at this track in 1.27 !

No ads?  
 
No more Marlboro...no more advertisments? From 2006 it isn't allowed anymore to have any cigarette-ads in the formula one. But the mothercompany of Marlboro, Philip Morris has found a way to stay in the formula one. They would like to buy all the sponsor-space on the Ferrari's. And sent it out on the track without any adds. Because they think that the color red is already enought to let people think of Marlboro. They would easily pay 150 milion dollar for the deal!

166/ 250 MM Competition Spyder  
 
Yesterday I bought, for the first time in a few years, some Cavallino's. I have a subscription on Forza, and one magazine I thought was enough! But yesterday I saw the Cavallino in a store...and thought, ow...what the heck, just buy them!
Just now I was reading in them and I saw a Ferrari I had never seen before (and that happens not very often!) Immediatly I searched the internet...and yes, there it was, the 166/250 MM Copmetition Spyder. With a one-off coachwork by Carlo Abarth. What a strange, but yet...beautiful design. I wonder how it looks in real.
Well...it's for sale. It will be auctioned at the Monterey Sports & Classic Car Action on the 13th and 14th of August in Monterey, California.
