Slot Classic CJ-13

1952 was a different year for the world of the formula 1, because it wasn’t celebrated the traditional race of Monaco. Instead of it, there were celebrated two races for automobiles of “sport” class; one category up to 2000 cc and another for higher cylinder capacities. There was a great participation: teams like Allard, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Talbot-Lago… and pilots like S. Moss, R. Parnell, P. Collins, R. Manzon…

In this beautiful scenario could be found participating two Pegaso Z-102 incribed by ENASA. They were lightened berlinetas, standard BE 2 coachworks, and 2.8 motor with 4 carburettors. They were painted in red with the bonnet in yellow and had ventilation grilles and apertures for the ubication of the oil and water wads. They had provisional matriculations: B-104251 and B-104252.

But the problems appeared again in the official trainings. This time a canalization of the oil broke in both cars with the consequent cloud of smoke. In view of this circumstances the following morning the Pegaso team took silently direction to Spain. The lack of time and a right running-in made W.P. Ricart say to the responsibles of the preparation when he returned from Monaco: “my prestige can bear this mishap, but it can be repeated”. As a anecdote of the G.P. the pilots didn’t wear their competition helmets because they thought it wasn’t obligatory and to repair this error they bought cork shalakoffs that were painted in red. Due to the heat present inside the cars the paint faded away over the pilot’s face, which caused a great fright in the boxes thinking they suffered some kind of strange haemorrhage…
