Formula Junior was a unique and unprecedented phenomenon, which the motor racing world could in no way have predicted, as such many cars, drivers and races in a single category had never been seen before.

More than 1300 races were held on five continents between 1959 and 1963. More than a thousand cars entered these races. In addition, there were eleven races in 1958 that were organized by the Italian Formula Junior and more than a hundred in 1964/65 in Scandinavia, in the Americas and in Asia, after the official closure of Formula.

Today, Formula Junior is one of the most popular categories in historic racing.

This book is dedicated to the Italian contribution to this phenomenon, within the broader spectrum of world competition, and focuses on an analysis and description of the unusually long gestation of Formula.

It intends to offer comprehensive information about the approximately 60 different makes of Formula Junior racing cars produced in Italy and their technical and production characteristics.

English edition available.

VALLELUNGA RACETRACK: UN AUTODROMO PER ROMA 1951/2000

The Vallelunga Racetrack is located about forty kilometers north of Rome in the town of Campagnano. From 1957 on, with the race – Esso Six Hours – on the new asphalt track, Vallelunga has hosted hundreds of car and motorcycle races, starting with the Rome Grand Prix that found its definitive home at Vallelunga. In this arc of time, all the greatest champions of car and motorcycle racing have passed through Vallelunga, and some of them were even trained here, attesting to the technical validity of the facility. The soundness of the track has been underscored in more recent times by the spectacular success of the Super Touring races and the Silver and Gold Cups and by the constant presence of Audi, building its triumphs in Super Touring.

ITALIAN RACING RED: DRIVERS, CARS AND TRIUMPHS OF ITALIAN MOTOR RACING

Ferrari is the quintessential bearer of Rosso Corsa, Italian Racing Red, in the 21st Century. Rightly so, because Ferrari Grand Prix cars have represented Italy in Formula 1 racing since the World Championship was established in 1950. But as Karl Ludvigsen explains in this stunning new book, there is much more to Rosso Corsa than Ferrari. In the sport’s early years the power to reckon with was Fiat, who also set the pace after World War I. Then a feisty newcomer, Alfa Romeo, carried the Italian flag alongside, the Maserati brothers into the 1930s. Two racing drivers, Felice Nazzaro and Vincenzo Lancia, created their own car marques, one of which stormed into prominence in the 1950s. Italian drivers were to the fore with Tazio Nuvolari, Achille Varzi, Nino Farina, Gigi Villoresi and father and son Antonio and Alberto Ascari. Great races such as the Targo Florio and Mille Miglia, and the iconic circuit Monza, hosted many titanic battles. From Ferrari to Maserati, the Italians have certainly held a prime position in world motor racing. These colourful contestants and many others come to life in the pages of this fabulous volume which are redolent with all the glamour and excitement of fast Italian cars and drivers!

BRM V16 IN CAMERA: A PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT OF BRITAIN’S GLORIOUS FORMULA 1 FAILURE

BRM (British Racing Motors) was a motor racing venture created in 1950 to represent Britain in the new Formula 1 category. A symbol of Britain’s post-war rebirth, the BRM car did nothing by halves: its 1.5-litre 16-cylinder supercharged engine and advanced specification made it a technical tour de force, but it earned a reputation as a fantastic folly, such that Stirling Moss described it as ’without doubt the worst car I ever drove’. This book is a fascinating portrait of a racing car that still engenders enduring fascination.
