Lorenzo’s Last Ride

Lorenzo Bandini made his way into auto racing via motorcycles before moving on to cars in 1957 winning in a variety of classic events including in the prestigious Mille Miglia and Targa Florio before moving on to the Ferrari team for the 1962 and 1963 seasons. Lorenzo found success in Formula One, having his best season in 1964 with wins in Austria, Germany, and Italy to go along with podiums in a number of other grand prix races.

For the 1967 season, Bandini teamed with Chris Amon to campaign the Ferrari 312 which had been introduced the previous year. The 312 was not a particularly competitive car with a heavy, underpowered engine that was low on torque. It speaks to the talent of the two Ferrari drivers that were still able to make the car competitive in a field filled with superior machinery.

Like so many other drivers of the era, Bandini would make the ultimate sacrifice in motor racing, losing his life at the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix.
