I reached a milestone in my career as photographer/editor. I was able to film this magnificent Ferrari 212 F1 1951 Monoposto on track last sunday! It is one of only two or three made, and it is certain that it was being driven by Dorino Serafini during the Syracuse Grand Prix in 1951, in which it finished second. It was great to be in the nearness of such a great and rare car, and also to be able to film its performances.
Unfortunately, due to cold spring weather in The Netherlands and the fact this driver was only allowed four laps on the track (?) the tires could not be warmed up properly, so top speeds were never reached.
The owner of the car is a true Ferrari lover, a very nice man, and he takes care of his car as if it is his own child. For having had the opportunity to portray this epic machine I thank him very much!
