Giancarlo Martini, uncle of the racing drivers Pierluigi Martini and Olivier Martini, in the mid-1970 drove in European formula 2 championship for Scuderia Everest, the team run by Giancarlo Minardi. In 1976 on behalf of Scuderia Everest Giancarlo Minardi signed a three-year deal with Ferrari to enter a Ferrari 312T in secondary events with the aim to provide talented up-and-coming Italian drivers with F1 experience. Scuderia Everest ran the loaned Ferrari 312T-021 for Giancarlo Martini in the Daily Mail Race of Champions at Brands Hatch and in the BRDC International Trophy at Silverstone – these were the year’s only non-championship events. Martini, who was 28 at the time, managed to shunt 312T on the warm-up lap in Brands Hatch and finished 10th in the International Trophy. Quartzo made the models from both races, car #36 with the white upper air intake from Brands (4054A), and car #36 with black one from Silverstone (4054B). For both models the car is designated as “British GP 1976 ‘Test Car’” on the plate.
