In the town next to the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, where the background music of the Sundays is the sound of motors, the formation of a motorsport fan club was unavoidable.
If it had to be a club, of course it would be a Ferrari one, dedicated especially to Enzo Ferrari, the worldwide known Boss famous for the victories with his red cars.
It was the 1967 and the fantasy of the sportsmen was stimulated by the duels between Ferrari and Ford during the Prototypes World Championship.
Newspapers had titles like “the goniometer against the computer” and the victories in procession, as the one in the 12 Hours of Sebring, made Italians prouder and prouder.
During the 1000 kilometres of Monza, in the test day, the newborn Club started its activities. The first members attended the event with a big yellow and black banner, with the writing
“Scuderia Ferrari Club Vedano al Lambro”. Being unusual for that time at racetracks, the club impressed a lot of people, and thanks to the big sign, even Ma’am Laura Ferrari,
the Boss’ Wife, along with the two pilots Lorenzo Bandini and Mike Parkes discovered the association.
The first thing that came up to mind was to meet up with people really into Ferrari and to discuss about motorsport events or even follow the Red Cars of Maranello during the races.
In the first years the members of the club were over 200 and the trips, also out of the Country, were attended by lots of people. Furthermore, the club was attended by the Brambilla brothers,
Vittorio and Tino, worldwide known and appreciated pilots from Monza.
Tino Brambilla, after lots of good results in other Formulas, had the great occasion to race with Ferrari in the 1968 Italian Grand Prix. The week before this event saw him and the club
members talk every nights about the debut he was going to do in the Club's first headquarters (the Campana Bar). His brother Vittorio wasn’t racing at that time and maybe, thanks to those
unforgettable discussions, he wanted to try, getting the results the everyone knows.
We are proud to think that his debut was born within our club, really close to the Monza Racetrack.
Lots of pictures are attached on the walls of our headquarters.
