Presumably Fillipinetti would have entered a Ferrari; but his 365P had been destroyed in Spychiger's fatal crash at Monza. So what car did he replace with the GT40? A 250LM?
And what was Rob Walker planning to run? For some reason a Serenissima floats into my mind, perhaps a memory of a photo from years ago; did he run one at the Test Day? Or was he going to run a Ferrari of some sort?

Filipinetti ran a 275LM for Boller and Spoerry (finishing 6th), a GT40 for Bucknum and Muller and a Cobra coupe for Harper and Sutcliffe.

I think the Daytona Cora driven by Harper and Sutcliffe was another case of one of the Ford/Shelby works cars being run under a flag of convenience. The Brock/Friedmann/Stauffer Daytona Cobra Coupes book describes this as a Ford works car which ran under an entry purchased from Georges Filipinetti.

greatest success came in 1966 with the win at the Targa Florio.
