Skip Hudson -- Ferrari 412MI

One of the ultimate front-engined Ferrari sports/racers, the 412MI never realized its potential "in period".  Richie Ginther won the "Kiwanis Grand Prix" at Riverside on July 19, 1959 with the car, but otherwise its race history was mostly DNFs.

Hudson didn't qualify for the "L.A. Times Grand Prix" on Oct. 15, 1961 due to mechanical problems. 

In 2007, your webmaster had the rare experience of seeing and hearing this great car driven hard and fast around Laguna Seca on test runs by Ferrari expert Bert Skidmore

Current owner Chris Cox raced the car in the Monterey Historics on August 18, 2007.  He finished 4th.
