1974 Ferrari 312 B3 driven on the limit

Engine: Type 001/12 180° V12 / 2992 cc / 182.6 cu in Power: 490 bhp / 366 kW @ 12.500 rpm Weight: 582 kg / 1,283 lbs Event: Modena Trackdays Date: 5-6 june 2019 Track: Circuit Zolder Drivers: Marco Werner (GER) / Maximilian Werner (GER) / Jacky Ickx (BEL) Ferrari had encountered a whole plethora of problems in the development of the 1973 single-seater. In fact, the new Racing Director Luca di Montezemolo went so far as to remark that it was better not to race cars like that at all! It was a cruel swipe but it showed what the future Ferrari President was made of. Forghieri had been recalled to the fold and although he kept the English-built monocoque, he had changed almost everything else. The wheel base was now shorter, the weight distribution different, the radiators were in the flanks, and the periscope-style air intake remained. The cars were tested thoroughly and at length to improve their reliability and with this in mind, Ferrari decided to abandon its sports car racing interests and concentrate solely on F1. In 1974, Clay Regazzoni was joined by a young Austrian who immediately hit the spotlight. The season also saw Ferrari return to top form. Clay Regazzoni just missed out on the Drivers’ title which went to Emerson Fittipaldi, while the team came second in the Constructors’. The 312 B3-74 was a highly competitive car, as its 10 pole positions clearly demonstrated. Sadly, however, it wasn’t nearly as reliable. It scored three wins (Lauda in Spain and Holland, Regazzoni in Germany), but the feeling remained that a big chance had been lost. source: Ferrari.com Filmed with Canon Legria HF G40 + DM-100 microphone Canon EOS 7D Related video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XCS4NyNgoM My pictures http://belgian-motorsport.com https://www.flickr.com/photos/belgian-motorsport/sets/ Follow me on Facebook and instagram https://www.facebook.com/Belgian.Motorsport/ https://www.instagram.com/belgianmotorsport/ #ferrari #312b3 #modenatrackdays --------------------------------------------------------- keywords --------------------------------------------------------- loud engine exhaust sound idle revs revving car automobile racecar canon legria hf g40 DM-100 dm100 mic microphone ferrari 1974 312 b3 312b3 niki lauda Marco Werner Maximilian Werner Jacky Ickx v12 Modena Trackdays Trackday motorsport 2019
