Ferrari Dino 166 F2 - Ferrari Dino 166 F2
The Ferrari Dino 166 F2 was a Formula 2 racing car from the late 1960s.
Origin and races
The activities of Scuderia in Formula 2 remained limited. Ferrari had already built monopostos according to Formula 2 regulations, but only when the Formula 1 World Championship (partly in the 1950s) was based on Formula 2.
In 1967 the Formula 2 European Championship was introduced as a separate racing series. The Ferrari Dino 166 F2 was developed for this series. The car had a 6-cylinder engine, the basis of which was the Dino-V-6 from the road vehicle. The chassis consisted of pipes and sheet metal. The Scuderia only brought the Dino to the start of a race once in 1967. In 1968, efforts became more serious. The engine was fitted with 24 valves and the car was revised. Ernesto Brambilla and Derek Bell finished third and fourth in the championship.
The Formula 2 program expired at the end of 1969. Bell finished fifth and Brambilla eighth in the championship. However, the car was used for a short time. Andrea de Adamich drove the Argentine Temporada, a series for monoposto vehicles, at the turn of the year 1969/1970, albeit without great success. Chris Amon showed that the car was fundamentally competitive with his overall victory in the Tasman series in spring 1969.
