Friday 16 Mar 2007: Racing colours
Until the late 1960s the colour of most racing cars reflected the country of their origin, British cars were "racing green", Italian cars red ("rosso corsa"), French cars light blue, German cars were white and later bare metal ("Silberpfeil"), American cars white or blue with blue and white lengthwise stripes and any Dutch racing cars were usually orange.
