The infamous BELLINI 3.6 (Dennis Jenkinson once screamed that "that bloody s__t-box has frightened more race car pilots into early retirement than any other!") being thrown about the mean streets of London...in anger, by Terry Thomas. (THE Bellini 3.6 powerplant can be seen, "racing" , after a fashion, in the white #38 Special:

"NO THANKS TO YOU!"
(Note: The BELLINI BOYS ("B.B.'s") got out their guns, pun intended, and tried (Oh, HOW they tried!) to enlarge their boat-anchor of an engine to 3.8L., so they could badge it as a "Bellini 38"...a "38 Special." They were prodigious fans of Cowboy Movies.)

All it's life, this sled had the unenviable ability, under race conditions, to veer in the opposite direction from which it was steered! Eventually it's spaghetti-like tubular frame was found to be the culprit...some of it's epoxied joints (no proper welds, here), were becoming undone and allowing for heroic amounts of movement/flex! During one nightmarish adventure, Clive Sussman (who apparently LOST a bet) was 1/2 way through Eau Rouge "wrestling that wheel", when, with a loud report, an engine mount snapped (jamming the throttle linkage "full-on"), AND his bloody seat came undone from ITS' moorings! As he put it later, "Blimey, I had an instant panic attack...would have bailed-out, if I wasn't paralyzed in terror!" He put it into the nearest earthen bank and considered it his good fortune. The remains were given to a dealer in scrap, WHO then did sell the car to the production company that produced the Terry-Thomas flick.

An adroit observation! And the two famous faces here, give witness to the "Lily" quip:

No Smiles Here!: Neither of the car's two occupants (Sterling Moss & Denis Jenkinson) look happy, 'cause they weren't. Terrified, slightly...frightened, certainly. They have just "had a right-merry go of it" (in the Bellini 3.6), at Crystal Palace, thinking it would be great fun...it wasn't. So much so, that to this day Moss, who one can only assume is in prayer, REFUSES to comment on that day's activities and Denis was never quite able to rid himself of that questioningly-worrisome expression. It is said that one could see the very essence of life drain from their faces...a deeply humbling, and Life-Changing, experience for both of the chaps. A bloody Epiphany, I calls it!
No less than the great Colin Chapman, who was present this day, later said, "I could never quite understand how any car, which looked so grand on paper, and in reality, could handle so horridly!"
The car's chief engineer, David "Curley" Greyson, who's standing aside both, HAD a full head-of-hair a short 1 1/2 yrs earlier...at the outset of the "Bellini-Project." History blames his august-self for the "epoxy experiment" (EE).
(It seems that the Polka band, who were commissioned to entertain the assembled, were oblivious to the unfolding disaster.)

Listen & Watch a few restored Bellini's 3.6's...those that didn't crash themselves into a million pieces.

These examples have been civilized mightily (with properly welded tubular frames) and are NOT quite the "killers" they once were...albeit the fellow on the track did have his hands full with massive oversteering, which always plagued these sleds...when they weren't veering in unlikely directions. Note how said chappie is hugging the apex-curbs for dear life, not unlike a VERY fearful swimmer constantly in touch with the walls of a pool!

The last reputed go at Le Mans...for the olde 3.6...by this time, almost passably civilized.

The leisurely pace of the driver change gives witness to the urgency they felt was necessary...none.

I'm told (by my French acquaintance, Marcel)that this was the last run (albeit an exhibition), on the Continent, the African Continent, for "The Infamous Bellini 3.6".

Observe the bit of trouble the intrepid Jacque Levant is experiencing with that "VW Bug-like Tranny" and how gently he is minding the curves...being familiar with it's reputation. Although, by this time, it was becoming passably civil. The MK.1 would not 'ave done a lap without brushing a hay-bale. (More than likely, rearranging a dozen or more...the driver returning with hay coming out of ALL his orifices. And dragging a few bales behind.)
"J.L.", you fellow old-timers may recall never got sufficiently comfortable with using his left arm/hand to shift...and often, with the dexterity of a circus performer, would use his right. I SO MUCH had hoped that this clip would have shown him doing as much. I've been assured , by more than one, that's it's quite a show indeed...an eye-opener. Something once seen and never forgotten.
I attempted to approximate it, in our Austin Healey 3L. on a number of occasions, but found that my feet then would "forget" their normal usage, i.e., the Right would "play" the clutch while it's opposite, the Left, would seek out the brake(and throttle)...curious, what? The rearrangement of the brain synapses!

Taking your life in your hands, I calls it! : Neville Wodehouse, of Liverpool, provides yours truly with this short example of the infamous buggy NOT haphazardously leaving the tarmac...amidst the screams and chortles of those present.

Looks like a spot-on run, but "Ole'Nev" says that the driver, Sid Sussex, a man with whiskers of a nature which you with your pure mind would scarcely credit, was white as a ghost afterwards...drenched in perspiration. He hastily retreated into the Driver's/Officials tent where he knew there would be the materials for a stiff drink. A "stiffner" was what he fancied an imperious need of at that moment. A rather short time later he was feeling about as good as a man can feel and still remain on his feet. He demanded to be led to his "B-Car"...and this time he'd "Tame that S.O.B.!" Clearer heads prevailed, for history notes that he did NOT die that day.

Those are rural, wine country, roads, adjacent to the "L'Ormarins Franchoek Motor Museum"...in South Africa. Once a year, to celebrate the Boer War, they dust off a number of the museum "displays" and take them out for exercise.

Perhaps the best motor racing author ever, Denis Jenkinson, said shortly before his demise (but NOT on his death-bed, as some bewildered people claim) that "Nature in her dealings with the human race is given to the playing of practical jokes, and she had exercised her distorted sense of humour in the form of the Bellini 3.6 motor racing car. A vehicle given to making a man feel like human waste.
I am anxious not to take a liberty, but if I may speak frankly, it was a beastly contrivance...even after it's frame problems were discovered and corrected. You see, you could never be sure of what the bloody thing was going to do, or exactly WHERE it was apt to go... "a perpetual tank-slapper." The high speed curvy bits were a nightmare taken in it as you never knew when the wickedly-abrupt “terminal” oversteer of the beast would drop in your lap. A REAL pants-wetter.
The ONLY times that I witnessed Sterling being perplexed/frightened were in it, as he seemed to be in mortal combat with the machine. Not a most agreeable sight for the eye to rest on.
If the truth be revealed, it was the very cause of my habit of saying a prayer as I climbed in a motor car...ANY car...and my renewed interest in God...as I'm sure I've come brazenly close to seeing his face on a number of "Bellini Occasions.""

The ludicrous 3.6 Bellini, Mk. 4...by which time the much more successful, and popular, Aston Martin concern was contracted to fabricate the body work. And why not?, as they were the ones Bellini had taken pains to imitate the many previous years. "A.M." knew as much...and were amused, and flattered.

As I understand it, the "Bellini Boys" were great believers in the ancient axiom, "If it won't go, make it like one that does!" SO, they originally had ideas of wrapping their horrid chassis in a Ferrari-like skin. The "Commodore" threatened to sue them, and keep suing them AD INFINITUM! The Aston Martin group was, at least initially, indifferent (to be followed by amusement). Thus the 3.6's did always look somewhat similar to their masterful machine.

A fortnight past, whilst strolling down the Avenue (La Brea, by name) with the moon-of-my-delight, she expended a few cursory glances at the store front windows of the nearby antique shoppes...as is her custom. So, it was of no little surprise when she exclaimed,"Yikes!, isn't that that hideous race car you 'ave (she's part Cockney) a love/hate thing with? I quickly scanned the parked motor cars at hand, and could see none that could be categorized as such and would of chalked up her outburst as another hint of senility...until, until she pointed out the object of her amusement. To our right & behind a pane of the finest Corning-Ware glass, amongst other items of antiquity, was a display card, announcing: "1962 BELLINI 3.6 (Mk. 2), Bronze...$1200.00."

Once thought lost for the ages, the fuel injected, 5-speed synchronous, cone clutched, chain driven wonder resurfaces!...this is the wonder that paved the way for the still to come (20 yrs. later) BELLINI 3.6 race platforms.

This was the "Bellini Boy's" first foray into motor car production borrowing heavily on American influences...predating their copying of, later, their F1 rivals design concepts.

"The Bellini Boys" (Earnest & Julio) were rabid visitors of "Harry's Bar" in Venice, Italy. During which time they were known to wrap themselves around heroic quantities of a cocktail called the BELLINI...named NOT after them, but a 15th. century painter, Giovanni Bellini. Later, after they (& their 3.6) became somewhat famous, the liquid ambrosia was amalgamated, and re-named, to include it and them...if that's the proper way of stating the obvious.
The very first one I was given the pleasure of tasting was at Aintree, in 1960 I do believe...also got a kiss from the first English girl I had a crush on, I recall. GRAND DAY, what?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aintree_Motor_Racing_Circuit

Here’s the recipe, ENJOY!:

BELLINI 3.6
Ingredients:

3.6 Oz. Puree From Canned Cling Peaches (THE ORIGINAL: 3.0 OZ.)
Champagne
Dash Lemon Juice
Maraschino Liqueur To Taste
Mixing instructions:

Puree ripe peaches in a blender and spoon into a large, chilled wine goblet. Sprinkle with lemon juice and sweeten with maraschino liqueur. Fill with ice cold champagne. You can substitute peach juice or peach nectar for the peach puree.

But(t) DO take heed and recognize that there exist a grouping of snobbish cur's, usually with unseemly mustaches and sideburns (most probably haters of Motor Sports), who prance about day-by-day refusing to acknowledge the amalgamation. They are to be shunned and hissed! Here is one (BOO!!):

It was a VERY hot and windy that day at Riverside, when the ever unpredictable Bellini 3.6 came to do battle. And because of the temp. and overheating problemmes, the boys decided to bolt-on a Godzilla-sized oil sump (4 GALLONS!)...as well as a side facing oil cooler, & fan, in the cockpit! (NOTE: After the event, the pan DID show signs of having scraped the tarmac a good number of times.)

For all you lover's of fine dance:
The boys, Earnest & Julio Bellini, had a devotion to the Island of Hawaii and, as such, found themselves there OFTEN...especially in the off season. During a number of visits they, individually and unknown to each other!, became deeply enamored with a dancer ("Lily Luau") at their favorite night club. She ALMOST became the official "Bellini Girl", save for her refusal to leave the Big Island. It is doubtful that each EVER found out about the other's affair with the wee- innocent(?)-lass...as they were both lovers of discretion and knew how to keep a secret:

Although the song to which she sashays was recorded in 1931...this lil' scene was captured on Dec. 6, 1941. The day before the "Pearl Harbor" Attack!

Earlier this week, I found myself meandering about the streets of the Westlake Village District of Los Angeles to meet with a UCLA professor of Psychology. He, and I, are hip deep in an in dept study of "The Analytical Framework of the Cryptographic Mind." I was steering myself towards a restaurant of HIS choosing, one I knew not existed: "BELLINI OSTERIA!" As we wrapped ourselves around our meals and wine(s), I couldn't but scour the walls with my gaze...hunting for any "3.6" pictures. Alas, there were none to be found. The bartender/part owner, who looked remarkably like the younger of the two Bellini Brothers, swore on his Yiddisha Grandmother, that he knew nothing about the 3,6...nor did he even drive! As if that means anything.
When I return, I plan on grilling him in a greater manner than they do their salmon...and, AND sneak in a few framed pictures (FFP) of THE BELLINI 3.6 (MK.2 & MK.4) to hang on their "MENS" & "WOMENS" room walls. If they, out of some false sense of timidity refuse to do so, I will!

Ps I love this site soooooo much info
Ps I'm 24yrs old if that means anything"
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
SO, anyone 'ave those pics, to help this wee lass? To combat her (their?) sagging? Look lively now!
(I know a host of old dudes who'd kill for "Higher Nipples." (HN's))

Just a few scant minutes ago, whilst whisker-wacking (WWW) and singing "Pale Hands I Have Held Beside The Shalimar", Signora Marianna Marquesa Bonetti "from out of" Modena, Italy, E-mails me (at my YouTube address):

"My Dear Mr. Zuzulo56. Forgive me the indiscretion of contacting you prior to a formal introduction, but I have been following your series (Bellini 3.6) on the American "VINTAGE RACE RULES" Forum and find it most invigorating. You couldn't possibly know, but my servants, as well as some acquaintances, have gotten involved in shouting bouts (don't worry, if an Italian is speaking with another Italian, they're probably shouting-Ha!) over whether the 3.6's exist...or EVER existed! My chauffeur's Grand-Father states categorically that he knew the Bellini Brothers and once sat in the MK.4. I chose to believe him...and you, Dear Sir.
If you and your lovely wife, are ever again in Italy, I shall consider it a slight if you both do not stay and visit at my Estate.
Oh, dear me, I have almost forgotten the reason for infringing on your privacy. Please do me the honor of accepting this address, which may prove useful: http://www.shopwiki.com.au/bare-minerals-lipstick-bellini-3.6g?sb=1
It is common knowledge, in Italia, that when "The Bellini Boys", as you so cutely refer to them, retired from motor racing, they took up the development of a cosmetics enterprise."
Farewell, The Long Affection That In My Heart Does Harbor, Abides & Abides...and Better Abides."

************************************************************
NO ONE is going to convince me that their size- 3.6g.- is a coincidence.:

Outside of a number of European regions, plus perhaps Mexico, few recognize that for most of their adults lives, "The Bros." did NOT involve themselves with through-bred horses (as many of their peers did). They were devotees of the sport of Bull Fighting. So much so, that large chunks of cash was spend by them on the formation & upkeep of a Fighting Bull Stable. At times having up to 36 (10 x 3.6) in tow. On weekends, when the traveling Circus of Toreadors, Bulls, etc. were in town, hundreds of these embossed, metal, posters could be seen":

Although the Boys never affixed these, as badges, on their motor racing vehicles, some private owners have. I covet one...

(By-the-by, the tidy little scene is a thing from Greek Mythology. It depicts the god Dionysus, who loved a handsome young Satyr named Ampelos who was gored to death while attempting to ride a wild bull. From his blood Dionysos created the first grape-vine. For this reason, on The Continent, winos are known as "D-Men...or Demons.)
