Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine This first prototype for the 250TR was actually a 290MM with a somewhat played with 250GT engine fitted and contemporary reports describe it as looking rather rough and ready with visible differences in shades of red paint where modifications had been made. The model captures the shape very well and the placement of the decals is accurate, but in light of these accounts it is rather too well finished! The car was to have been driven by Gregory and Gendebien but the Belgian was reassigned to replace the injured Von Tripps in another car and OSCA driver Marolli was offered the drive late on the eve of the race, having never even sat in the car. Gregory didnít know this and thought he had no race to drive in and had to be woken by a mechanic 20 minutes before the start! He moved from sixth on the grid to fourth by the time he handed over to Marolli, whom it quickly became apparent had little experience of such powerful machinery and was some three minutes a lap slower, dropping them to tenth at the flag.
