These Are The Men Behind Ferrari

Everyone knows the usual suspects: il Commendatore Enzo Ferrari, Luigi Chinetti, and a few notable engineers, managers, and designers. But along with them, we’d like to pay tribute to some of the men who labored on these creations to produce and support some of the most legendary cars the world has ever seen. 

In some of these photos from Ferrari’s archives you’ll spot some famous faces but we’d also like to recognize some of the men who did not work for fame or pay, rather for their passion. Whether installing an engine on the assembly line, performing body-work in the dead of night in Le Mans’s misty pits, or slinging a car down a straightaway, these men worked long hours to compete and win, giving up more traditional pursuits for the glory of the sport and to build the brand, sometimes even sacrificing their lives. Sometimes the work was thankless, resulting in little more than shattered parts or a poor finish. But without their devotion, and the commitment of men like them around the world, there would be no Ferrari or motorsport. We are thankful for their work and for giving us heroes.

The first picture is the Porsche 550 of Ed Hugus and Carel Godin de Beaufort at Le Mans, winning its class:

No Ferrari in that picture.

This is how I prefer to see Ferraris, with dull paint and banged up a bit from battle wounds, much more than their overly restored perfect looking reincarnations.

Totally right !!! All those scars are part of the car’s history, the battles on the track!!! Good point !!!

Excellent post . You bet . There were [ and are ] a mass of unheralded and unknown folks for whom without Ferrari would of never attained even half the success in racing and sales that they did . The one story though you’ve probably never heard .. but are about to [ the very condensed version ] … is the many folks for whom without the money they invested/loaned/gifted the company [ and the Old Man personally ] Ferrari would of never even survived … never mind thrived … sort of [ Ferrari from its inception has never made a dime of profit after expenses despite all the hype of late ]

How do I know this little if hardly ever known side of things you may ask ? Mi Familia ! From both Italia and Ticino ,CH … especially the Italian/Swiss side .. if you catch my drift … wink wink . Va bene . Ciao
