Faces, lives, stories that come together in one unique passion: rallying. Like a film, this book attempts to stop the most significant moments in the lives of a number of Italian drivers who became part of the speciality’s history between the ‘50s and the end of the ‘70s. Not biographies, but real slices of their lives, told by people who are great sportsmen and human beings; those who left an important mark on the sport, in some cases long forgotten. Villoresi, Cella, Patria, Cavallari, Giunti, Ceccato, Barbasio, Carello, Pinto, De Adamich, Ballestrieri, Pregliasco, Pianta, Montezemolo, Tony Fassina, Verini, right up to the man who became a legend, the very symbol of rallying itself, Sandro Munari. Those are just some of the names in this real anthology, a work that brings together the feats of 60 stars who left their indelible mark on the history of rallying.
Gianti Simoni, the long time navigator of Arnaldo Cavallari, collaborated on the book.
The story will continue with a book to be published in 2014, featuring other Italian drivers who competed from the ‘80s until today among whom there will be Vudafieri, Zanussi, Bettega, Tabaton, Tognana and Miki Biasion.
