This weekend, we will be in Tuscany, Italy for the Mugello Classic. Situated in one of the world's most beautiful areas of the world, the undulating Mugello Circuit will host over 280 classic cars, split over nine different fields. To make sure you are looking forward to this as much as we do, we have taken a look at two historic racing cars that raced at the first and to date only Mugello Classic and one that will take to the track this weekend.
First up is this fabulous Ferrari 250 GT SWB, which is the very last built to the high-performance 'Comp/61' or 'SEFAC Hot Rod' specification. Fielded by the North American Racing Team (NART), it was raced to an outright victory at Montlhéry by Pedro and Riccardo Rodriguez. Now in Swiss ownership, 3005GT has only appeared at select events over the last few years.
Competing in the CER1 field back in 2014 was this Lola T70 Mk2 Spyder. Finished in a very distinct white and blue colour scheme, it was campaigned with considerable success in period by Jerry Crawford. Stored for many years, SL71/20 has more recently been raced at a variety of events by its German owner.
Due to compete in the two-hour Sixties' Endurance race is this lovely Lotus Elan 26R, which was originally rallied by the works-backed Ian Walker Racing Team with considerable success. Unusual for a 26R, chassis 26-S2-33 has survived with its original chassis and bodywork.
