Following a dispute with the FIA about the homologation of his 250 LM sports car in late 1964, Enzo Ferrari audaciously handed in his team’s competition license and vowed that his cars would never race in Italian red again. His frenzy was short lived but nonetheless, his cars contested the last two races of the Formula 1 season under the banner of Luigi Chinetti’s North American Racing Team and were painted white and blue.
