The Scuderia Ferrari team was founded by Enzo Ferrari on 16 November 1929 and became the racing team of Alfa Romeo, building and racing cars under the Alfa name. In 1938, Alfa Romeo management made the decision to enter racing under its own name, establishing the Alfa Corse organisation, which absorbed what had been Scuderia Ferrari. Enzo Ferrari disagreed with this change in policy and was finally dismissed by Alfa in 1939. The terms of his leaving forbade him from motorsport under his own name, for a period of four years.
In 1939, Ferrari started work on a racecar of his own, the Tipo 815 (eight cylinders, 1.5 L displacement). The 815s, designed by Alberto Massimino, were thus the first Ferrari cars. World War II put a temporary end to racing, and Ferrari concentrated on an alternative use for his factory during the war years, doing machine tool work.
After the war, Ferrari recruited several of his former Alfa colleagues and established a new Scuderia Ferrari, which would design and build its own cars.
On 10th July 2019, Bentley will reach its Centenary, an achievement most definitely worth celebrating. From the very first prototype created in a London mews to the phenomenally powerful and exquisitely crafted cars driven across the world today, Bentley has transformed the face of motoring. Watch our film above to see this story brought to life. W.O.Bentley founded Bentley Motors in order to "build a fast car, a good car, the best in its class". That desire has remained at the heart of Bentley's vision ever since. From the original 3 Litre right through to the incredibly powerful and refined cars of the modern era, Bentley's extraordinary cars have always been designed and built by exceptional People. Today, every car is made at the Bentley factory in Crewe, in the north-west of England, by a team of over 4,000 highly skilled men and women. Come and Celebrate this centenary milestone at the International Sports & Classic Car Show 2019
The 1929 Monaco Grand Prix was the first Grand Prix to be run in the Principality. It was set up by wealthy cigarette manufacturer, Antony Noghès, who had set up the Automobile Club De Monaco with some of his friends. This offer of a Grand Prix was supported by Prince Louis II, and the Monegasque driver of that time, Louis Chiron. On 14 April 1929, their plan became reality, when 16 invited participants turned out to race for a prize of 100,000 French francs.
There were no qualifying heats, instead grid positions were drawn by a ballot. Philippe Etancelin drew pole position, while main rival Rudolf Caricciola started 15th.
The 1929 Monaco Grand Prix was won by William Grover-Williams who had begun racing a Bugatti in races throughout France, using the alias, "W Williams" entering the Grand Prix de Provence at Miramas and the Monte Carlo Rally. In 1928, he won the French Grand Prix, repeating in 1929. That same year, driving a Bugatti 35B, painted in what would become known as "British Racing Green", he won the inaugural Monaco Grand Prix beating the heavily favoured Mercedes of the great German driver, Rudolf Caricciola.
In 2019 and during the weekend of the 90th anniversary of the 1st Monaco Grand Prix the International Sports & Classic Car Show will celebrate this historic events birthday.
