Footnotes

  • Formerly from the collection of the Late Count Giovanni Lurani: See Brooks 22 May 1990 Monaco auction.

    "I arrived at the corner where there was lots of oil spilt by an ERA. The car was uncontrollable.... I saw the scenery rushing around me and I had the exact feeling that this was the end. I was half thrown out of the car, thank God, and it landed with the four wheels in the air near me and I got away with a broken right hip. A good price to pay for such a terrible crash."
