Hi all - hope you're still smiling and managing to dodge any nasty Covid effects.


Might anyone have a copy of AutoSprint from September 1964 - Probably issue #18 (11 September) but possibly issue #19 (18 September)? I am trying to locate a copy of the report of the Coppa Inter Europa Sports Car race held at Monza on September 6th (ahead of the Italian Grand Prix) - I have the report from Auto Italia, but it's not as comprehensive as I would have hoped.


If anyone has a copy and would be willing to send a scan or a photo of the relevant pages, that would be hugely appreciated. I'm happy to share my email address by PM if that makes things easier!


Thanks in anticipation....

The 1965 Monza Official Yearbook  has three pages of coverage of the "15th Inter-Europe Cup" held on the morning of September 6th, 1964.  This includes a picture of the Ferrari 250LM's of Salvadori and Vaccarella rounding the Parabolica, and a picture of the 250GTO of Prinoth being righted by the marshals after rolling off track. Also one shot of the victory ceremony. Text is in English and Italian.  Five or six paragraphs.


If this might be of interest, let me know.

Thanks Jeff - that's a very kind offer; however, having read the report again Auto Italia, I think I have found the answer in the results summary, where the contender I was seeking is notably absent, confirming my suspicions he was a no-show. The images you describe are possible the same ones as in Auto Italia.
