1957 Pescara Grand Prix

The 1957 Pescara Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race, held on 18 August 1957, at the Pescara Circuit near Pescara in Italy. It was race 7 of 8 in the 1957 World Championship of Drivers. The race, which was the only Formula One World Championship race at the track, was held at the longest ever circuit to stage a Formula One World Championship Grand Prix. The track is 25 km/16 miles long and is now part of the SR16bis on the coast of Pescara. It was also the first of the two consecutive Italian races, and after the subsequent race at Monza was complete, it became the first time that two Formula One World Championship races had been held in the same country in the same year.

The temporary public road circuit used for this race was located near the town of Pescara. It was extremely dangerous; so much so that Enzo Ferrari, a man not known for compassion for his drivers, did not send his team to the race out of fear for his drivers' safety. However, he was persuaded by Luigi Musso to enter a single Ferrari 801 as Musso wanted to secure the Italian drivers' championship. Musso retired on lap 10 with a split oil tank.

The race drew a crowd in excess of 200,000 spectators.
