Repost: ex-Cunningham Stanguellini Formula Junior
November 10th, 2020
We are pleased to have sourced a very special Stanguellini Formula Junior for a customer. It is an ex-Briggs Cunningham car mainly driven in period by Walt Hansgen. It was the first Formula Junior to go to the US in July 1959, the first to compete there in the following month - see the picture below - and the first to win a race there at Watkins Glen in September. It also won the Formula Junior support race at the first modern US Grand Prix at Sebring in December 1959. More updates to follow - in the meantime, a picture of the car in its first race at Montgomery Airport in August 1959. Hansgen is driving.
