Driving Ambition: the smartest part of the road has always been reserved for the grande marca and by the early 1950s victories in classic endurance races were customary for the fast-emerging Maranello equipe. Racing informed every aspect of Enzo Ferrari’s outlook: “I have, in fact,” said the Padrone, “no interest in life outside racing.” The Scuderia Marzotto Ferrari of Giovanni Bracco and Franco Cornacchia placed second in the 1951 Targa Florio to Franco Cortese in a Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica. “In many respects” wrote noted automotive historian, Michael Sedgwick, “this was Italy’s decade.”
