Jacky Ickx and Brian Redman, Ferrari 312PB, Vallelunga 6 hours 1973.

Epic battle for the World Championship of Makes in 1973 between Matra and the Ferrari.

Usually, as here in Italy, the Matra-Simca MS670B had the upper hand on the Ferrari 312PB.

Cevert’s Matra engine blew around mid distance. He then joined Pescarolo and Larrousse to claim victory, in front of the 3 works Ferrari’s.

Ickx and Redman, usually the fastest duo of the Scuderia finished 3rd this time, behind the sister car of Schenken – Reutemann.
