This is the Ferrari 312B - Mexico GP 1970 (C. Regazzoni) in 1:18 scale by GP Replicas.

The Ferrari 312B driven by Clay Regazzoni in the Mexico GP 1970 holds a special place in motorsport history. Regazzoni, a talented Swiss driver, showcased his skill and determination behind the wheel of this iconic Ferrari model. The Mexico GP in 1970 was an unforgettable race, primarily due to the high-altitude location of the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit. Situated at an elevation of over 2,200 meters (7,200 feet), the thin air posed a significant challenge for both the drivers and their cars. The reduced oxygen levels affected engine performance, resulting in a loss of power. Despite these adverse conditions, Regazzoni displayed his racing prowess, navigating the treacherous circuit with precision and flair. His masterful control of the Ferrari 312B allowed him to secure a remarkable third-place finish, defying the odds and cementing his legacy as a skilled driver. This race serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of Formula 1 and the remarkable capabilities of the Ferrari 312B, making it a memorable moment in racing history.
