24 Hours of Le Mans 2014 - Battle of Giants
Once again, the roads near the French city of Le Mans will turn in a
circuit of a special kind. For the 91st time, known greats of the
motorsport scene meet to show their skills at the famous 24-hour race of Le
Mans. At least since the 70´s the endurance race enjoys cult status. With
the flair of yesterday and the technical state of today, the race offers an
unbeatable mix of adrenaline, excitement and an unique atmosphere.
Ferrari 246 S at Le Mans
Just as Ferrari embarked on their V6 Formula One program, they debuted a V6
sports car at the 1958 Goodwood Sussex Trophy. Looking like a miniature
Testa Rossa, this car was tested as its replacement for the upcoming
3-liter sports car championship.
The Dino was named in memory of Dino Ferrari who motivated engineer
Vittorio Jano to design a V6. He used an unusual angle of 65 degrees to
achieve better intake ducting and modified the crankshaft accordingly. This
V6 debuted in 1957 for the 1.5-liter Formula 2 Championship and was
enlarged in 1958 for Formula One.
The Goodwood car used an engine similar to the Formula One engine and was
known as the '246 S'. It was a 2-liter version of the quad-cam V6 engine
that was bored at 77mm to have 1983cc displacement and 225 bhp @ 8500 rpm.
This engine sat in a typical frame similar to the Testa Rossa's with a
solid rear axle, coil springs
, and the 250 GT 4-speed manual.
This first car (0740) was left hand drive and driven by Peter Collins at
Goodwood to finish third. The same car appeared at Naples with Luigi Musso,
but he smashed and spun the car too much to win.
At Silverstone's over-1500cc race, Ferrari brought out their V6 Testa Rossa
'replacement'. Known as the Dino 296S this three-liter V6 had 300 bhp and
looked promising-but this was only in specification. Driver Mike Hawthorn
recalled it was 'catching up everyone on the straight, only to lose it
again on the corners.' He was dealing with excessive over steer, roll and
cornering complications. Later this chassis (0746) was upgraded with a V12.
Leading into the 1959 season, Ferrari turned to a more simple V6 that would
be more serviceable and economical for private customers. This meant
reverting to a SOHC valvetrain as well as wet sump lubrication and a 60
degree block angle. Ferrari were experimenting with such a design for
small-displacement production cars known as Dinos.
Chassis 0740 was was fitted with this less-potent engine as well as a new
body from Fantuzzi with aluminum-embellished air outlets behind the wheels.
It endured a rough season that year, retiring several times, twice to
engine failure and once to a rear suspension
For the 1960 season, the Dino went into 'production'. Three more V6 sports
cars with Fantuzzi bodywork appeared. One right hand drive version (0776)
was built as a Dino 196 S for the Rogriguez brothers and two versions (0784
& 0778) of the 246 S appeared as factory 'works' race cars. These three
cars used a chassis similar to the Testa Rossa and were distinguishable by
the six intake trumpets poking up instead of the familiar twelve.
At the Targa Florio all three Dinos showed up and 0784 was fitted with an
independent rear suspension like the Formula One cars. It placed second
overall behind the quickest Porsche RS60 while 0778 was fourth and the
Rogriguez brothers brought a well battered and rolled 0776 home to seventh.
At the Nurburgring, 0784 was destroyed by fire. Both the other cars
retired, leaving Ferrari's V12s to contest the rest of the season.
By 1961. the V6 sports cars were obviously looking dated beside their new
mid-engine counterparts. Almost all attention was focused on the new
mid-engine 246SP in 1961.
Ford Takes On Ferrari and Wins the 24 Hours of Le Mans
Henry Ford II wanted to beat Ferrari in the prestigious 24 Hours of Le
Mans, so he made it a priority to show the world what his American company
could achieve on a global stage. Ford not only won the 24 Hours of Le Man
in 1966, but '67, '68 and '69 as well. This video looks back at that era
with Edsel B. Ford II, Dan Gurney and Mose Nowland.
