    Syracuse, Sicily: driving a Ferrari, Giancarlo Baghetti (No 32) won the 191-mile Syracuse Grand Prix formula one cars in one hour, 50 minutes, 8 seconds, April 25, after a hotly contested race.

    Thousands of spectators crowded the circuit to watch top international drivers struggling for supremacy at breakneck speeds. The number of foreign competitors in this racing event increases each year.

    D. Gurney of the United States, (No 30), in a Porsche was second and J. Bonnier of Sweden, (No 12), was fourth in a Cooper Climax. Stirling Moss, (No 18), driving a Lotus Climax, was eighth.

    B.R.M. cars driven by C. Brooks and G. Hill both retired, as did J. Surtees and M. Trintignant - both in Cooper Climax cars.
