Alberto Ascari won the World Championship   two years in a row racing in the Tipo 500 and only failed to win  two races over the two seasons. One of those losses was due to his non-entry as a result of wanting to quailify for the Indianapolis 500. Ascari is pictured inspecting the model in our final picture.
