Sameiro wins at Vila Real for the third time.
The Circuito International was run in two parts: on 22 June there was a sportscar race with 18 entries. The race was won by Eduardo Ferreirinha, driving a Ford V8-18. A month later eight cars met for the Formula Libre race, over 30 laps of the 7.2 km circuit.
Entries:
Portugal was represented by two Alfa Romeo Monzas for Sameiro and Soares Mendes, two Bugattis, one T51 for Ribeiro Ferreira and one T35C, for Conde de Monte Real, plus a Ford V8 Special - one of a small series of three built by Manuel Alves de Freitas & Cia Lda, in Porto, for Giles Holroyd. Three British Voiturette drivers gave the race a international impression. Douglas Briault raced ERA R6B and Gerard Manby-Colegrave ERA R1B.

Nuvolari at his best
For the first time, the Coppa Ciano was held on the new Livorno circuit. For safety reasons, the whole Montenero mountain section of the course was left out shortening the circut from 20 km to 7.218 km. On this course variant, rather than circling the rotunda the cars went through a hairpin and returned back on the west side before moving left and into the Ardenza district. Instead of climbing along Via di Montenero the route took the cars along the railroad before passing over it on the way through Antignano along the main street. South of Antignano after a sharp turn it joined the old race track back towards Livorno.
Entries:
Daimler-Benz had initially entered two cars for Luigi Fagioli and Manfred von Brauschitsch but then decided to miss Coppa Ciano and instead make preparations for extensive teats at Nürburgring, in an attempt to sort out the problems with the car. Auto Union entered cars for their usual trio of Bernd Rosemeyer, Hans Stuck and Achille Varzi with the cars arriving straight to Livono from Nürburgring. The team was confident after their double victory at the German Grand Prix a week earlier.
      Scuderia Ferrari entered four car for the race, two V-12s for Tazio Nuvolari and Antonio Brivio and two 8 cylinder cars for René Dreyfus and Carlo Pintacuda, the latter now having returned from South America. Clemente Biondetti was to race a Tipo B Alfa Romeo under the Scuderia Maremmana banner and Piero Ghersi a 6 cylinder Maserati for Scuderia Torino. The start list also included amateur driver Giosuč Calamai from nearby Florence in an old Alfa Romeo 6C-1750.
     
Practice:

     
Race:

      Despite the uncertain weather, it had rained all night and the rain continued to fall at intervals during the morning, a record crowd turned up for the race.
      Enzo Ferari has said that a racing driver gets a second slower when he gets married. At Coppa Ciano Rosemeyer was more than that. On the same weekend his new wife was out flying over three continents (Berlin-Budapest-Athens-Cairo-Damascus) with her Messerschmitt Bf108 "Taifun" and Rosemeyer was visibly stressed and worried. Auto Union team manager told Rosemeyer not to do anything foolish but rather retire if he did not felt well.
      The cars were lined up with Nuvolari's Alfa in the middle of the first row with the Auto Unions of Rosemeyer and Varzi on each side.

(Note 2)

At the start Varzi went into the lead followed by Rosemeyer, Brivio, Stuck, Dreyfus, Pintacuda and Biondetti. To the terrible disappointment for the spectators Nuvolari was out with a broken rear axle on his 12 cylinder Alfa Romeo seconds after the start. Nuvolari run back to the pits and demanded a new car, threatening to leave the team otherwise. The team was natuarally hesitant to bring in Brivio but when Nuvolari made it clear he wanted a 8 cylinder car Pintacuda's Tipo 8C was called in after three laps and Nuvolari took over.
      On the third lap Stuck, going through the narrow and twisty Antignao town section of Livorno, hit a curb stone and damaged his car so much he had to retire. Rosemeyer had an very uninspired race and retired after 6 laps. Rosemeyer admitted that he was so nervous that he could not race. Stuck took over the car.
      After seven laps Valzi had opened up a 17 second lap to Brivio with Dreyfus third. But now the Italian spectators were chearing and jumping for joy as Nuvolari was driving one of his greatest races. The narrow twisty sections were fitting the mantuan and the 8 cylinder Alfa perfectly. On the 12th lap Ghersi retired his Maserati. On the 14th lap Varzi is leading Brivio by 23 seconds but the Auto union driver is in trouble with the brakes. Nuvolari caught Dreyfus, the French driver turned over to the right waving by this team mate. At half distance he situation was:
1.Varzi (Alfa Romeo)52m33s
2.Brivio (Alfa Romeo)52m47s
3.Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)52m58s
4.Dreyfus (Alfa Romeo)53m17s

The spectators are standing and sheering. On the 18th lap Varzi, Brivio and Nuvolari appear together. On the next lap Nuvolari passes both opponents to take the lead while Varzi comes into the pit with brake failure. After a stop Varzi returns to the rece only to retire after one more lap. Scuderia Ferrari dominatesd the last third of the race. Nothing could hinder the "Flying Mantuan" from leading the Ferrari team home in 1-2-3 positions and take one of his greatest and most popular victories, once again humiliating the opposition. Stuck finished fourth, 3 minutes behind the winner and Calamai finished fifth and last.

      During the summer of 1936 Nuvolari probably raced better than ever in his career, beating the German teams four times within two months (Penya Rhin, Milan, Budapest & Coppa Ciano).

      After this race Rosemeyer sent his famous telegram to his wife in Damascus: "Retired after six laps. Come home soon. You must never leave me again." While Rosemeyer returned to Berlin with Lufthansa his mechanicis did no have such comfort on his way to Auto Union factory in Zwickau via the Brenner pass and Munich. Ludwig Sebastian: "We took the ordinary train from Rome but were unable to find any seats and had to stand in the corridor"

Footnote:
1. The 1936 race course was very similar to the 1937 one that had a length of 7.218 km (4.485 mi) but it seems there exact length of the 1936 course is unknown. Results speeds were given using a course length of 7 km, giving a race length of 105 km for the voiturette race and 210 km for the Grand Prix, but 7.2 km should be closer to the correct value.

The voiturette race run as a preliminary to the GP race was started at 8 AM. Seaman immediately took the lead from the pole and Bira (ERA) in 2nd place had only to see how the leading Delage drew away and disappeared. Bira was soon in the pit where the car caught fire. Trossi took over second place but Seaman was in a class of his own winning by 83 seconds.

Auto Union strikes back
Entries:
Mercedes-Benz decided not to start at Coppa Acerbo, too, and concentrate on testing for the Swiss GP instead. Varzi was also missing and team members had to go and look for him in Rome. He then duly showed up for the race but now it was clear that there was something seriously wrong with the Italian.
      During practice Stuck had a serious accident when a front wheel came off on the straight. The car went straight through the chicane and the driver managed to jump out from the car into a cornfield before the crash. Only slightly wounded Stuck was shaken by the accident and decided not to take part in the race.
      Scuderia Maremmana had entered a Alfa Romeo Tipo B for Biondetti but the engine had suffered unrepairable engine damages at Livorno and the car was replaced by a Maserati.
     
Practice:
Times from Friday practice were: Varzi (Auto Union) 11m06.0s, Brivio (Alfa Romeo) 11m10.6s, Stuck (Auto Union) 11m26.6s, Rosemeyer (Auto Union) 11m41.2s, Dreyfus (Alfa Romeo) 11m50.2s (sic!), Farina (Alfa Romeo) 12m25.8s, Ghersi (Maserati) 12m36.4s, von Delius (Auto Union) 12m55.4s,

To enormous sheers from the spectators it was Nuvolari who took the start with his Alfa followed by Varzi and Rosemeyer. Could he repeat his Coppa Ciano victory?
      For four laps the little Mantuan held the lead until he had to retire with engine troubles leaving the field open for the Auto Unions. Rosemeyer was the new leader and in a demanding race in temperatures of 43° Celsius, where only five cars managed to take the flag, he was in a class of his own doing only one pitstop and finishing 7 minutes in front of his friend von Delius. Varzi, who did the fastest lap of the race, had to make no less than 4 stops for new tyres ending third.

Just as in Pescara the week before a Voiturette race was held before the GP race. Probably because of the humiliating defeat in Pescara the works Maseratis had been withdrawn. Seaman took the start and led from ERA drivers Bira and Fairfield. The works ERA drivers in their repainted black cars were in trouble as usual as was Bira, who retired on lap 16 half a minute behind Seaman. The British driver led from start to finish in his Delage. Private ERA drivers Embiricos and Tongue took the other podium places.

Auto Union takes it all
Entries:
Mercedes were confident that they had cured most of the handling problems during the tests so they entered four cars for the Swiss GP.
      While Varzi was practising for the Swiss GP, Auto Union team manager Dr Feuereissen made a razzia at Varzi's hotel room finding both Varzi's girlfriend Ilse and drugs in the room.
      Scuderia Torino did not take part in the race but Étancelin raced his private Maserati V-8RI and Biondetti raced an ex-Scuderia Torino 6C-34 with Siata radiator cowl.

Caracciola went straight into the lead followed by Rosemeyer. For eight laps the Mercedes driver desperately held to his lead using every trick in (and not in) the book to keep the furious Auto Union driver behind. The handling of the Mercedes car was still not what it should be and Rosemeyer was clearly faster in the corners but unable to pass as the top speeds of the cars were equal. After much fistshaking and blue flags the Auto Union team called the Clerk of Course who made a firm sign to Caracciola to let Rosemeyer by or he would be black flagged.
      It turned out to be another Auto Union day. Mercedes was again in trouble as Caracciola retired with rear axle problems and von Brauchitsch got a newspaper stuck in the radiator whereby the engine overheated. Lang was also out of the race and the last Mercedes car of Fagioli got a puncture while holding third place and had to return to the pits at slow speed. That enabled Stuck to take over the third place. Étancelin retired the sole Maserati with throttle linkage problems.
      Once Rosemeyer came up in the lead he was unchallenged, leading home the Auto Union cars to a triple victory for the second time in a week with Hasse in fifth place. Of five finishers four were Auto Unions.
      Later the same day the race between Caracciola and Rosemeyer continued in form of a verbal fight in the hotel elevator. This was clearly a fight between generations, the old champ who refused to accept his inferiority against the young challenger. It would take half a year before the two drivers came on speaking terms again.

The voiturettes having the upper hand over the Grand Prix cars
The Junior Car Club decided to revive their Brookland 200 mile race last held 1921-1928. The 1500cc+ cars and voiturettes were raced together and the Andre Gold Cup was presented to the overall winner regardless of class.

However the 1500cc+ entry list was weak and the voiturettes dominated the race. Fairfield was on pole but it was Whitehead who took the start. He was followed by Scribbans, Seaman, Howe, Bira, Rayson, Fairfield, Dobson, Paul, Briault, Staniland and Powys-Lybbe. Noel Brocklebank retired his Bugatti after the first lap with ignition trouble. On the second lap Seaman took over the lead and on lap 6 Howe found a way past Scribbans as well and started the chase on Seaman. On lap 7 hub of the the left front wheel on Austin Dobson's Alfa Romeo broke and in 160 km/h the wheel flew into the pit area in a dangerous sitution. On lap 10 Peter Whitehead had to retire his ERA with piston failure and a lap later Paul joined him. Staniland had a troublesome race making several stops for adjustments of his Alfa Romeo and mays' ERa was leaking oil into the cockpit, making the pedals slippery. On lap 13 Howe took over the lead from Seaman while Bira was now third, 12 seconds behind. On the 21st lap Fairfield passed Bira for third position. The race took its tolls. After 29 laps Cyril White's Bugatti Bugatti stalled at Starkey's and was pushed away and a lap later Denis Scribbans became the third ERA driver to retire. At 30 laps Howe who was pushing to get time for his pit stop was leading Seaman with 14.6 seconds with Fairfield third a further 13 seconds behind. Douglas Briault made his pit stop on lap 35, handling over his ERA to M.G. driver Kenneth Evans. After several pit stops Percy Maclure gave up on lap 40. Fairfield retired giving over third position to Bira, who already had lost two laps to Howe. On lap 50 Howe, with only 8.4s lead after being unable to shake off Seaman went in for fuel and Seaman, who was running nonstop, retook the lead. When Bira pitted around lap 57 the first start attempt failed and the stop took 57 seconds. Then his fuel tank sarted to leak and after anothe stop for refill Bira called it a day after 63 laps. Evans was now third in his first race in a ERA, Taper fouth and Staniland fifth. At 60 laps Seaman, nursing his Delage, held a 44 seconds lead over Howe who was pushing to get closer, but in the end it was Seaman that held the fastes speed winning by 51.4s to take both the Gold Cup, the JJC 200 and the voiturette victory, collecting Ł350 in total.
      After this hat-trick (Coppa Acerbo, Prix de Berne, Donington) Seaman was invited to a Mercedes test drive in October.

Bianco in a 4CM took the start leading Belmondo and Trossi but after 1/3 of the race gone Trossi had forced himself up to the front and pulled away, the others having no chance against the 6CM car. Bianco, trying hard, had to see himself dropped to 4th.

Scuderia Ferrari sent three Alfa Romeo 8C-35 cars for Brivio, Tadini and Pintacuda. Early on in the race there was a tragedy as a wheel came loose from Bruno Gallinari's Bugatti and bounced into the specator area, hitting a boy with fatal results. The three Ferrari cars dominated the event, taking turns leading until Brivio had to retire with a fuel pump failure. In ther end Tadini took the vicory less than five seconds behind Pintacuda.
