Here’s a description of the 32 page book you’ll receive free when you subscribe.
Robert Pauley, a Chrysler engineer and car enthusiast who worked with Giovanni Savonuzzi in Detroit, sent us a collection of Kodachrome slides he had taken while at the Cuban Grand Prix in 1957. While doing research for an article to accompany these wonderful and never-before-published images of this race of the gods, we found that another VeloceToday contributor, noted Ferrari historian David Seielstad, had written about the race for Forza magazine.
We combined Pauley’s photos, Seielstad’s text, and the Editor’s epilogue, “Twilight of the Gods” to create a unique view of this important but little known epic race. As the bookies figured, the race was won by Juan Fangio, but it was also Fon Portago’s best race ever as he hounded Fangio the entire length of the race. Portago would tragically die only a few months later in the Mille Miglia.
The booklet is 32 pages long with rare color photos, results, serial numbers, and maps. Become a Premium Subscriber for only $5 per month via PayPal, Credit Card or Check and we’ll send you a copy of The Cuban Grand Prix, 1957″ free and that includes shipping worldwide.
