The story of Corrado Manfredini, a sportsman and true driver, who from the "real" Mille Miglia through the Tourism categories, the Formulas up to the great prototypes such as the Ferrari 512, has followed an enviable career.
His story full of life and love for sport accompanies the reader to the rediscovery of a now lost motor sport.
Foreword by John Watson. When, during the tumultuous 1976 Formula 1 season, Niki Lauda nearly perished in a conflagration at the Nürburgring and then, severely scarred, courageously fought back to race again only six weeks later, the Austrian earned admiration and adulation world-wide. While the saga of that year, and the battle with James Hunt for the World Championship, has been told many times, the rest of Lauda’s racing has received less attention. This new book redresses that by documenting, race by race, his diverse driving career from 1968 to 1985. Through detailed dissection of each of his 316 races, in an eclectic mix of cars, a vivid picture emerges of a hugely determined and vastly talented racer who, despite many setbacks, left a remarkable legacy. All enthusiasts will treasure this comprehensive and richly illustrated examination of Niki Lauda’s entire competition history.
Many of the drivers who raced in Formula 1 for Ferrari. Included: Farina, Ascari, Villoresi, Taruffi, Fangio, Castellotti, Bandini Amon, Ickx, Regazzoni, Lauda, Villeneuve and Scheckter. Also an interview with Enzo Ferrari and many vintage photographs.
In the production of this new book, Miki Biasion wanted by his side his loyal navigator Tiziano Siviero - today like yesterday – in order to rewind the tape of memories of those who experienced all sorts of racing and human adventure from the co-drivers’ seat, who reinvigorates a narrative plot that is already lively in itself.
This book brings together all the great French drivers who have distinguished themselves, since the beginning of the 20th century, in the Grand Prix, Formula 1, Endurance, tourism competitions or American trials. From Boillot to Grosjean, passing by Benoist, Chiron, Wimille, Trintignant, Behra, Beltoise, Pescarolo, Cevert, Laffite, Prost or Alesi, the author retraces all victories of these champions toghether with their fascinating personalities.
This book tells the rivalry between the two great champions with an intense and poignant tone, marked by unforgettable events for Formula One fans, until the tragic end of May 1, 1994 in Imola, when the relationship between the two had cleared up.
