1958
Gran Premio de Cuba
[Cuban Grand Prix]

In 1958, at Cuba’s second Grand Premio, Cuba’s premiere [Grand Prix] auto race, after the cars had gone five laps on the Havana circuit, the race was red flagged when it was discovered that driver Roberto Mieres’ Porsche had broken an oil line when  Mieres had to pit on lap four to repair a broken oil line. Just as driver Phil Hill rolled his car to a stop and exclaimed, “There is a terrible slick on the course”, Armando Garcia Cifuentes yellow and black Ferrari skidded on a large oil patch, jumped a curb, turned sidewise, and, as it flew over the crash barriers, took out a make-shift bridge where observers were gathered to watch the even. At least four people were killed and forty injured by the Ferrari’s impact. The Ferrari was stopped by a construction crane. Britain’s Stirling Moss took the lead in a Ferrari and Missourian Masten Gregory, driving another Ferrari, was second. when the race was halted due to the accident.  Britain’s Stirling Moss was declared the winner.

In 1882, Armando Río y Cuervo and his brothers ran a watch-making workshop founded by their uncle Ramón in Havana. Cuervo y Sobrinos soon became a reference and a rival for the most prestigious watchmakers of New York, Paris and Rome.   In the 1940s, Havana became the meeting point for intellectuals, businessmen and artists from all over the world, and Cuervo y Sobrinos produced their own watches while continuing to sell the most famous watch-making names. Einstein, Caruso, Churchill, Hemingway, Gable and Neruda all became faithful clients of this illustrious brand. Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Marlene Dietrich, Gary Cooper, Santo Trafficante Jr, Meyer Lansky, Lucky Luciano, Dorothy Dandridge, Joanne Gilbert and Tony Martin were only a few additional stars and well known individuals AND GANGSTERS who were patrons of Cuervo y Sobrinos…

HABANA NIGHT LIFE

Following World War I,  MANY NIGHT CLUBS AND CASINOS SOON DOTTED HABANA [HAVANA] NIGHT LIFE. Wealthy Americans and international stars and public persona traveled and splurged and habana soon became one of the most popular places in the world. And even through the  Repeal and Great Depression, places like the San Souci never completely closed down.  During the late 40’s and through the 50’s, injections of cash for lavish shows and elaborate gaming facilities made habana the top destination for the royalty of the public and private world. Night Club/Casinos like the Sans Souci spent upwards of   $25,000 a week just for the shows that glittered the stages and thrilled the wealthy. “It’s was like stepping into a movie set of what Hollywood thinks a tropical night club should look like” …. and through it all, thick and thin, the greatest Latino Cuban Watch & Jewelry House, Quervo Y Sobrinos Habana,  remained the anchor of LUXURY, QUALITY, CLASS & SERVICE..

****************************************

This wonderful Genuine Ferrari, powered by a GENUINE  WEHRMACHTSWERK 17 jewel movement, is cased in a Rose Gold Filled three piece case and sports a  Ferrari Yellow Signed dial signed with the customary CUERVO Y SOBRINOS HABANA signature AND an additional UNICOS IMPORTADORES, and a steel case back with Cuervo Y Sobrinos and Ferrari logo, Signatures and associated imprints, demonstrating this fine Ferrari Watch was one of a small run made exclusively for Cuervo for the upcoming 1957 Gran Premio de Cuba  that was dominated by international drivers in Ferarri Race Cars.

Juan Manuel Fangio OF Argentina
Won Five Formula One World Driver’s Championships with four different teams:
Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Maserati

Even on those occasions when his team let him down, Fangio’s driving prowess enabled him to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Indeed, his most sensational performance – and many, including Moss, regard it as the greatest drive in Formula One history – came after a botched Maserati pit stop in the 1957 German Grand Prix at the mighty Nurburgring. Having lost nearly a minute to the Ferraris of Mike Hawthorn and Peter Collins, the Old Man flung his Maserati around the mother and father of all tracks, smashing the lap record to smithereens and beating the British youngsters into second and third.

This epic drive that secured his fifth driving title was his last victory. A few months later, weary from pushing himself so hard for so long and saddened by the loss of so many of his peers (over 30 of them were killed during his career), Fangio retired, leaving behind a championship record that endured for 46 years and a legend that remains undiminished. He died in 1995, aged 84, at home in Argentina.

JUAN-MANUEL FANGIO

BAPTISTA

CHE GUEVARA

CASTRO

Before the 1958 Cuban Grand Prix, Grand Prix champion Juan-Manuel Fangio was kidnapped by Cuban revolutionaries under Fidel Castro and Che Guevara  [ to embarrass the Batista government]. They kidnapped him at gunpoint in his hotel before the Havana Grand Prix, an event he had won the year before and held him until the race was over. 

Some of the drivers at the 1958 Cuban Grand Prix: Luigi Chinetti, Armando Garcia Cifuentes, Tanner, Shelby, Stirling Moss, von Trips, Phil Schell, Rubirosa,Ed Crawford, Phil Hill, Kessler,

            “The revolutionists treated me well,” Señor Fangio said. “They tried to explain to me the reasons for my kidnapping and the aims of their organization and their attitude was even friendly. I was well fed by a woman who brought my meals. During the period of the kidnapping I as transferred three times to three different houses in three different automobiles. The houses were well-furnished residences and in one of them I saw a part of a film of the Gran Premio race on television.
Juan-Manuel Fangio

1960 CUBAN GRAND PRIX

The 1960 Cuban Grand Prix was  titled the “Freedom” Grand Prix of Cuba, and organized at the Camp Columbia Airport, was won by Stirling Moss in a Birdcage Maserati. Thereafter the Castro regime showed less interest in the sport – which was  too capitalist for the President’s communist views and the last-ever Cuban Grand Prix race was held on the Avenida del Puerto in Havana in June 1962. Due to the rift with the US, not much was interest or history was created ….

FOR MORE HISTORICAL CUBA GRAND PRIX INFORMATION:

Caribbean Capers:
The Cuban Grand Prix Races of 1957, 1958 & 1960

“I was one of the timing officials at the races in 1958, and gathered as much original information, first hand accounts, and rare, official records from organizers as possible, with the intention of creating this book on the events in Cuba during the Golden Age of sports car racing,” author Joel Finn said.  “It’s a story that needs to be told, of a time in racing history like no other, set amidst the gaiety and glamour of the clubs, beaches, beautiful women and Hollywood stars.” 

With more than 500 historic images of the cars, drivers and events – many never -before published – and numerous meticulously compiled charts of the race entries and results, Caribbean Capers: The Cuban Grand Prix Races of 1957, 1958 and 1960, becomes the authoritative account of Cuban racing and will be available this November from Racemaker Press.  .”

The large scale format of the book fully showcases the stunning full-page historic photographs. The book is organized into ten chapters, beginning with Cuban Racing History in 1901, covering the Cuban National Races in the 1950’s, (the precursor for the 1957 Grand Prix), each of the three GP races, with a chapter on the first ever race held for the Formula Junior International Championships, and concluding with the Gran Premio Libertad sports car race during the 1960 Havana Speed Week. The cost of the book is: US$199.95, plus s & h.  For more information or to order your copy, please call Racemaker Press at 617 723-6533 or visit: www.racemaker.com.

Carroll Shelby
1958
GRAND PRIX

Carroll Shelby was born on January 11, 1923 Shelby developed heart valve leakage problems by age 7 and spent most of his childhood in bed. By age 14, Shelby’s health improved.

Shelby learned to drive a Willys automobile while attending Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, Texas.

After graduating from Woodrow in 1940, Shelby enlisted in the United States Army Air Corps and served in   World War II as a flight instructor and test pilot.

Starting as an amateur, Carroll Shelby became a driver for the Cad-Allard, Aston Martin, and Maserati teams during the 1950s.

Driving for Donald Healey, in a streamlined and supercharged, specially-modified, Austin-Healey 100S, he set 16 U.S. and international speed records.

He drove in the Mount Washington Hillclimb Auto Race in a specially prepared Ferrari roadster, to a record run of 10:21.8 seconds on his way to victory in 1956

In 1957, driving a FERRARI , Carrol Shelby placed second in the first Cuba Grand Prix [Gran Premio de Cuba] behind Juan Manuel Fangio.

He was Sports Illustrated driver of the year in 1956 and 1957

He competed in Formula One from 1958 to 1959, participating in a total of eight World Championship races and several non-championship races.

Teaming with Roy Salvadori, and driving for Aston Martin, he won the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Carrol Shelby retired from driving in October 1959 and opened a high performance driving school and the Shelby-American company.

Carrol Shelby  obtained a license to import a successful British Sports racing car manufactured by AC Motors of England, installing an American Ford engine in place of the original British Bristol engine, he introduced the car to the American public as an AC Cobra.

Soon the AC Cobra was being called the Shelby Cobra.

Shelby continued on to be influential with Ford manufactured cars including the Daytona Coupe, GT40, the Mustang-based Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT500, and of course the 427 Shelby Cobra. Parting with Ford, Shelby moved on to help develop performance cars with divisions of the two other Big 3 American companies, Dodge, and Oldsmobile. The most memorable of these cars was the Dodge Viper.

Ford provided financial support for Shelby’s Cobras from 1962 through 1965 and provided financial support for the Ford GTs first with John Wyer’s Ford Advanced Vehicles in 1963 and then with Shelby American from 1964 through 1967.

Shelby was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1991, and the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 1992.

1958 Gran Premio de Cuba Kidnapping

Death on The Malecon
Monday March 10, 1958

As the world’s No. 1 road-racing driver, Juan Manuel Fangio is an old friend to danger. The 46-year-old Argentine has seen its blurred face in the swirling landscape of a hundred tracks, known its angry snarl whenever his sports car skidded through a tight turn. But one evening last week he stared at danger in a new form: the muzzle of a pistol……..

 


Next time around, Cuba’s Armando Garcia Cifuentes, 27, met trouble headon. His bright yellow-and-black Ferrari skidded out of a shallow turn and tore into the crowd. It spewed up at least 40 casualties, including seven dead. In its wake lay empty shoes; spectators…….

FOR MORE HISTORICAL CUBA GRAND PRIX INFORMATION:

Caribbean Capers:
The Cuban Grand Prix Races of 1957, 1958 & 1960

“I was one of the timing officials at the races in 1958, and gathered as much original information, first hand accounts, and rare, official records from organizers as possible, with the intention of creating this book on the events in Cuba during the Golden Age of sports car racing,” author Joel Finn said.  “It’s a story that needs to be told, of a time in racing history like no other, set amidst the gaiety and glamour of the clubs, beaches, beautiful women and Hollywood stars.” 

With more than 500 historic images of the cars, drivers and events – many never -before published – and numerous meticulously compiled charts of the race entries and results, Caribbean Capers: The Cuban Grand Prix Races of 1957, 1958 and 1960, becomes the authoritative account of Cuban racing and will be available this November from Racemaker Press.  .”

The large scale format of the book fully showcases the stunning full-page historic photographs. The book is organized into ten chapters, beginning with Cuban Racing History in 1901, covering the Cuban National Races in the 1950’s, (the precursor for the 1957 Grand Prix), each of the three GP races, with a chapter on the first ever race held for the Formula Junior International Championships, and concluding with the Gran Premio Libertad sports car race during the 1960 Havana Speed Week. The cost of the book is: US$199.95, plus s & h.  For more information or to order your copy, please call Racemaker Press at 617 723-6533 or visit: www.racemaker.com.
