Note: The day after the 1955 Mugello Circuit, Pagliai's Ermini 357 is portrayed, with the engine removed, after verification following a complaint from the Scuderia Campidoglio of Rome for non-compliant engine capacity, which was later revealed to be unfounded. Note the number on the side, changed from 74 to 124 to field the car in the first division with Piero Scotti, after his Ferrari had accused a mechanical problem during the circuit tests. Scotti was blocked on the starting line as the Ermini had been made the subject of a complaint and therefore had to remain in the closed park at the disposal of the technical commissioners. Average speed Km 99 and 876 m.
