Footnotes

  • In the days before the prancing horse adorned everything from pens to fragrances to childrens toys and all in between, The Hanhart Ferrari-Duostop represented a rare, early instance of Ferrari putting their brand on something other than a car.

    During the late 1950's and 1960's Hanhart produced a number of timing devices for the factory Ferrari team, including the Addi-Stop, Duostop, Two-Stop and Tri-Stop which were neck worn devices to aid lap timing. Although all models of Hanhart Ferraris are rare in their own right, the clipboard featured here is especially so with very little information available on other examples. With its original leather neck strap and the movements having recently been serviced, this lot is ideal for the Ferrari collector who has everything and could see great use in regularity events or on the pit wall at Goodwood Revival.
