Maranello, 12 October – Roberto Motta writes: We would like to dedicate this picture to the memory of Mexican driver Nicolas Zapata, who was the victim of a traffic accident on Saturday 9 October on the Mexico-Toluca highway in the region of Santa Fe. The image shows him racing in one of the recent rounds of the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge. With the loss of Zapata, the new Ferrari Historic Race loses its most fervent supporter, a racer for over ten years in the extraordinary series dedicated to the classic jewels from the home of the Prancing Horse. In November 2009 Zapata was crowned champion at the fourth and final race at the world finals in Valencia, behind the wheel of a legendary 1956 Ferrari 625 TR.

Mario Marchesini of Budrio and our “Italian eye” caught this transporter with Polish tags (many FIAT models are made in Poland). Mario thinks the much taped up Prototype might be a new four door Lancia Ypslion. Photograph copyright Mario Marchesini.
