I need the forums help here as I only speak English .... As I recall there was some issue about being unable to locate a program cover for the 67 Targa Florio event .... I believe I have found two candidates, both were listed as being programs for the event.... Let me know if these are authentic... If it pans out I'd be happy to make the cover in game for the track .....

51st Targa Florio program cover.... signed by Nino Vaccarella.  :)

But, of course sentiment lies with our own John Bradley's original artwork.

:clap:  WOW .... Very nice .... Thank You...
Any clue what the 2 are I found .... Given the color scheme could it be the inside cover perhaps?? In any case you solved my problem....As I recall the bapom cover was custom made for the release and is n't authentic yes? I might be mistaken. Thank you for this..... :up:

Yes, John made it from scratch using the original as inspiration :)
Your 2 pics are the first a billboard (hope is the right word)  that go on walls; the second is a special issue of a magazine for the event

Ramoats, from what I've found on Google, the "Numero Unico Omaggio" pictures, are posters rather than official programs, or possibly  artwork from the Automobile Club Palermo newsletters or similar publications.

That is to say that your first picture, "programma ufficiale", is the official program, although it may not be the front cover.

It might be worth an email to the event to find out?

You know what.. I'm going to go ahead and make it as an alternate.  I'll post it here for whoever likes it...

Here it is folks... it has the virtue of being an actual fragment of this incredible event.. If you like it... use it.... back up your old page0GT.pbf before you drop mine in ... Cheers ...
