A friend of mine pointed me the following two youtube videos of Bathurst 1960





On the first, a Ferrari Supersqualo 555 is visible with race no.22, while on the second I have identified two Supersqualos (no.22 and no.1.)

The only races I know at Bathurst for 1960 are the Bathurst 100 on 18/04 and the Craven International on 18/10

The two Ferrari should be the 555 #9001 and 9002.

Can anyone address surely the two videos and the drivers for the mentioned Ferrari?

The first clip is from the October 1960 meeting until 1'40, when it slips back to a 1957 or 1958 meeting, probably the 1958 AGP, then at around 2'00 picks up in 1960 again

The No.10 Squalo is Glass's, and the No.22 Clark's

I should think the Jaguar was driven by Ian Geoghegan...

He was out of school by then.

At the end of the second clips (between 5'45 and 6'00) I have noted two Ferrari 555 (#22 and #1); according my database the only race with these numbers is Bathurst 06/10/1957 - NSW road race ( gold Star n6);

By the way do anyone know where is possible to buy the John Medley's Bathurst book?
