Footnotes

  • From the collection of the late David John Peter Watson, equity card carrying professional driver. Watson worked closely and became great friends with Juan Manuel Fangio while in Monaco. They were filming a biopic that saw limited release as "Fangio a life at 300KMH". During the filming Watson drove a number of Fangio's cars including the 1956 Championship winning Lancia-Ferrari D50 and the Scuderia Serenissima Ferrari 250TR. Attending the filming was Fangio himself, Count Volpi of Scuderia Serenissima and Uglioni the Maserati team manager. Watson asked them to sign his 200S Maserati photo as a memento.
