Hi lads,

someone can, by any chance, point me in the direction of some specific literature about these two topics (Ferrari P4 and Ferrari in CanAm racing)?
Thanks :) :)

EDIT I refer to books, not sitography; but if you happen to have some good articles at hand then go ahead ;)

The most obvious choice would be Antoine Prunet's book, Ferrari Sports Cars and Prototypes. It's a usually bit expensive (+50€) but if you're patient good solid copies often surface at 'low' prices (15-25), which is how I got mine.
It covers the P series, and there's also a small chapter about the P4-derived 612 and the 512-derived 712. I don't have a scanner but I can take pics with my cellphone if you need.

The 2nd and 3rd choices I can't tell much because they're on my wish list :)  Those would be Pete Lyons Can-Am book, which is considered the best on the series; and more appropriately, Anthony Pritchard's Scarlet Passion, which covers Ferrari's Prototypes race history in the 60s-70s.

I forgot to add, the massive Tanner/Nye Ferrari book (at least in the 6th and last edition) covers the P cars too, & the 612, but not the 712. THat one is usually very cheap but do keep in mind that it also covers F1 and the road cars, so the prototypes are not given as much attention as in Prunet's and Pritchard's books.

I have a copy of the Tanner / Nye book so can post some photographs of specific pages if you want.

Thank you massively for all the great suggestions so far! I kinda regret it now, I've opened Pandora's box and so many books to look for now :D
