Arturo Merzario & the Ferrari 156 Dino

The Ferrari's 156 Dino with the numbers 2 & 8, which are popularly called "Sharknose", will come to the Austrian Historic at the Red Bull Ring!

Both "Sharknoses" are equipped with a V6 engine and 1500cc. The two Ferrari "Sharknoses" were driven in 1961 in Monza by Phil Hill (number 2), who also won the World Championship there, and Ricardo Rodriquez (number 8). 

Owner of both Ferrari "Sharknoses" is Jason Wright, who always drives these Ferrari's together with Arturo Merzario (picture: Merzario left, Wright right). 

Arturo Merzario is a well known former Ferrari factory driver who pulled Niki Lauda out of the burning Ferrari with the help of other drivers during his fire accident at the 1976 German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring.
