Recently I could purchase an old program for a European speedboat GP on the "Lago di Lugano" in 1954. I hope some of you like the scans....

The boat type on the first two photos seems to have the grille of a tipo 158/9 Alfetta. Is it indeed equipped with an Alfa engine?
I heared of such a boat, but couldn't find photos.

The other two photos look like "Laura 1", but I am missing the Quadrifoglio sticker on the hood....:confused:

Maybe someone can help;)

Best regards
Ciao Ca:cool:rlo

I am wondering if these old boats are just sitting around in someones barn/garage in Italy waiting for someone to come along and restore them. :D That boat looks like a handful with the short back end and a big motor in the front. Bet it flew across the water!

Check out the page at " The Vintage Hydroplane" ,by Guido Ermanno Romani ,with some of the best photos that I have seen of Mario Verga's boat Laura 3a. The twin ar 159 installation is especially well represented.

The boat section also covers the ar159 powered MATHEA V111 and a couple of pieces on the ar powered Miss Badelia

Thanks for sharing the link, the photos are really great!
And a good reminder how dangerous this sport was (and still is).

Best regards

Are there plans for L3?

I have a small group on yahoo for classic boat modeling enthusiasts. If anyone is aware of a source of plans for Laura III please speak up. We would love to model this beautiful craft.
