The category for the Italian cars, even if scaled down in comparison with last year edition and the Spa Classic have seen a fair number of entries, in particular for the Ferrari cars’ owners. There was special expectation for the presence of two of the eleven cars Ferrari 275GTB/C, built and featured by a body made lighter with respect to their ancestress, one of which appeared on the track driven by Gaye, the expert driver who left his 250 SWB for once to take a break. During the session it was just Gaye who managed to set best time, at few tenths before the Bizzarrini 5300GT driven by Elrich while the tandem made by Francioni-Barth had to be satisfied with the last grid place after running only one lap of track. Already in the race1 Francioni looked revived and, thanks to a perfect start, managed to take the lead during the first passage, a position that he held all over the race defending himself against Gaye’s attempts to regain his way.Elrich was third, the last driver who raced on full laps. In race 2 the ISO car was given to Barth’s drive who, despite his commitment, more than envisaged he worked hard to go up again from the last line-up position, reaching the second place only during the sixth passage, when Gaye, in the lead, had already got a remarkable advantage. However, once more the win favoured the Swiss tandem thanks, in this case, to the engine failure of the Ferrari’s leader at the end of Mistral straight, just during the last lap. Singleton-Frenklin were second in the Ferrari 275 GTB, while Vogele arrived third at the wheel of a splendid Maserati 300S.
