Ferrari 275P at 1964 Le Mans Historic Photo Print

Here is a historic racing photo car art that features Ferrari 275P at 1964 Le Mans endurance race. Ludovico Scarfiotti and Mike Parkes are behind the wheel of chassis 0820 #21. Unfortunately, they don't make it to the finish and retire their Ferrari 275P just after 71 laps completed at Cirque de la Sarthe. This competition isn’t successful for Scarfiotti and Parkes but their teammates Jean Guichet and Nino Vaccarella are victorious with exactly the same car. Their 275P racer is the second to last Ferrari to win a Le Mans competition. 1965th is the last victorious year for Scuderia in the most difficult endurance race ever.  

A thrilling car deserves inspiring drivers

The stories of Ludovico Scarfiotti and Mike Parkes are pretty exciting as well. The Italian pilot wins Le Mans partnering with Lorenzo Bandini a year before this picture is taken. He follows Ferrari into the F1 championship and wins the Italian Grand Prix in 1966. Scarfiotti is the first Italian to win at Monza for at least fifteen years. He dies in a racing accident at a hillclimbing event in the German Alps in 1968. Mike Parkes is a Ferrari`s pilot as well but his main role at Maranello is that of a development engineer for their road cars, and the 330 GTC in specific. He becomes tempted by racing and enters both endurance and F1 competitions partnering with John Surtees. He is the only one to beat Ford GT 40. Parkes` racing career isn’t as successful as that of Scarfiotti, even though he wins a few titles. His last project as an engineer is the development of the notorious Lancia Stratos.
