In 1919, Ferrari finished ninth at the Targa Florio, driving a Lancia, one of his first races.
Andr Boillot was the winner.
While at CMN, Enzo (right) piloted a 1913 8.0L Isota Franschini in the 1920 Parma-Poggio di Berceto race. Impressed by his driving and technical skills, Giorgio Rimini (left) hired him onto Alfa Romeo later that year.
At a bar in Turin, Enzo met Ugo Sivocci, a one-time bicycle racer and mechanic, who hired him to work at Costruzioni Meccaniche Nazionalia.
Being Ferrari's friend, Sivocci was also hired to drive on Alfa's three-man works team with Antonio Ascari and Enzo Ferrari.
The 36-year-old Antonio Ascari was killed while leading the 1925 French Grand Prix in an Alfa Romeo P2 at the Autodrome de Montlhry, south of Paris.
