I photographed this car on a visit to the Donington Park Museum in March 1996.
It's the Ferrari 500 with which Alberto Ascari won the World Drivers Championship in both 1952 and 1953 when it was contested under the 2 litre Formula 2 Regulations. The car had a 4-cylinder inline engine with a capacity of 1,985cc and Ascari won 7 consecutive races spanning the two seasons, setting a record that was not beaten until Sebastian Vettel won 9 consecutive races in 2013. Ascari's winning run would have been 9 also, but was interrupted by the 1953 Indianapolis 500 mile race which was at that time included in the World Championship programme, although not contested by the European teams.
On 4 July 2014 I showed a photograph of the car that I had taken at the Donington Museum in 1989, together with two taken at Oulton Park in 1970.
