1964 Lang Cooper news, pictures, and information
The Lang's race record was unspectacular. In an era when aerodynamics were seldom understood, some vital components were deleted and it was a handful. Later, some pieces were refitted but, by that time, larger seven-liter engines were in vogue and the Lang slid into obscurity.
Bill Warner found the Lang in a junkyard in the mid-90s and restored it to museum condition. In 2004, Claude Nahum purchased the car and commissioned BRE to restore it to race condition, complete with its missing aero details. At a recent track test in California, the Lang performed as originally intended.

|Usually In The Red In Monaco|
|Maranello, 20 May – It's been many, too many years since the roulette wheel has stopped on Red in Monte Carlo.

Since then, no Ferrari has been first past the chequered flag, even in those years when Maranello's technical superiority seemed beyond doubt, such as 2002 and 2004. However, there have been plenty of podium finishes in the past eleven...[Read more...]|
