Carrera takes Targa

With a lap distance of 45 miles, the  Madonie circuit which played host to the Targa Florio provided an even greater test of man and machine than the mighty Nurburgring.  Held on closed public roads on the island of Sicily, the Targa Florio was a mainstay of the World Sportscar Championship in its various guises through the 50s and 60s.  Its status meant that sports prototypes such as the mighty Ferrari 312PB of fastest qualifiers Arturo Merzario and local hero Nino Vaccarella did battle with the twists and turns of this sinuous circuit but with a record average speed of just 80 miles per hour, agility and handling was more important than straight line speed.    In 1973, when the faster prototypes dropped out through unreliability, the 911 Carrera RSR of Herbert Muller and Gijs van Lennep took outright victory.
