Ferrari Friday with a pair of V12 racers due to star this month ...

With values rapidly rising over the last couple of years, it is increasingly rare to see Ferraris compete in historic racing. Today we take a closer look at two exceptions that will star at this month's Monza Historic and Goodwood Revival. At the former, this ex-works 512 S will compete in the Classic Endurance Racing 1 race. The five-litre engined machine actually competed in the 1970 Monza 1000 km, where Peter Schetty and John Surtees finished third overall. As can be seen in our extensive gallery, it has been regularly raced in recent years.
One of the absolute highlights of last year's Goodwood Revival was the Glover Trophy race with a nail-biting fight between multiple winner Andy Middlehurst in his Lotus 25 and American Joe Colasacco with this 1512 F1. Powered by a howling 1.5-litre, flat-12 engine, the Ferrari ultimately came out on top. This was a fitting reward for many years of trying to get the very rare F1 racer to the same level of the more common British cars, many of which have been raced in historic events for much longer. We are happy to confirm that the 1512 F1 will be back next weekend to allow Colasacco to defend his title in the Glover Trophy.
This weekend, Alpine will debut the Rally version of the highly acclaimed A110. It is most fitting that the modern A110 will go rallying considering the success of the original car during the 1970s. The A110 Rally was developed together with long-term partner Signatech and will make its public debut at the Rallye Mont-Blanc Morzine where it is on display in the paddock.
