HGPCA’S UK focus
The HGPCA will have six of its 10 dates in the UK this season. Races for pre-’61 and pre-’66 grand prix cars will feature at events including the Silverstone Classic and the Donington Historic Festival in one of the HGPCA’S most Uk-based calendars for some time. Overseas races will be run at Monza (June), Nurburgring (August), Spa (September) and Dijon (October).
Ferrari film A new film about Enzo Ferrari will start filming next summer. Directed by the renowned Michael Mann, ‘Enzo Ferrari’ will concentrate on 1957, which was a pivotal year for Ferrari and his cars as Britons Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn led the grand prix team. Some of the filming will be done in and around Ferrari’s home town of Modena and Christian Bale will play the lead role.
