Ferrari's 70th Anniversary celebrations at Goodwood ...

At the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed one of the major themes was Ferrari's 70th Anniversary. This was celebrated in style with two separate classes, one for single seaters and the other for sports racers. Today, we have taken a detailed look at four of these legendary sports racers from four different eras.
Our absolute favourites of the weekend was this Ferrari 330 P4. This achingly beautiful sports prototype was used in Ferrari's successful 1967 World Championship bid. Of the three examples built, the featured 330 P4 is the most original survivor.
The earliest of the quartet is this Ferrari 750 Monza, which was raced extensively in the United States with considerable success and for many years. Although it had its engine replaced with a Chevrolet V8 during its competition career, chassis 0502M was later reunited with the original 'four' and has been comprehensively restored.
Among the loudest cars out on track was this 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione. Finished in Belgian racing yellow, it was raced by Ecurie Francorchamps in the 1973 Spa 1000km and 24 Hours of Le Mans. Rarely seen since, 16425 has recently returned to the limelight.
Producing the most glorious soundtrack was definitely the 333 SP. Fitted with a F1-derived, five-valve V12 engine, the 333 SP remains the last sports prototype developed by Ferrari. It was particularly successful in the United States, and this car was the most successful of all with back-to-back wins at Daytona and Sebring in 1998.
