The new book about Ed Hugus is a fine effort (order here) but concentrates on the Cobra interlude. Being a magazine devoted to Italian cars, we thought it might be nice to see what Ed did with the various Ferraris he drove over his career and these articles is based on a series of interviews with Ed Hugus in 2003 by the Editor and the article was originally published in Forza Magazine, June 2004. Part 1 appeared last week, and this week we conclude with Part 2

At Le Mans in 1961, Hugus got a ride in an OSCA, (S/N 1001 Tipo S) driving with David Cunningham (no relation to Briggs) but retired early. Back in the prancing horse saddle in September, he drove another Ferrari, the 250 TR59/60, serial number 0770TR 59, which had already been home to Hill, Gendebien, Gurney, Allison, von Trips, Ginther and Rodriguez. By 1961, the car had passed to George Reed, another Ferrari privateer, and the pair took the warhorse to second place at the Elkhart Lake 500.
