INTRODUCTION BY EMANUELE PIRRO
2023 represents a fundamental milestone for the history, the annals and the legend of the Le Mans 24 Hours. Not only will the event be celebrating the centenary of the first edition, but also the official return to the race of a Ferrari prototype, exactly half a century after the Scuderia’s last works entry. In other words, the world’s most famous race, alongside the Indy 500, will be celebrating the return of the best loved marque, creating a virtuous short-circuit between legend and passion.
Mario Donnini, a writer and journalist with Autosprint, author of the book Le Mans. 24 Ore di corsa, 90 anni di storia, returns to the theme and as well as tracing the history of Ferrari at Le Mans, reveals to the reader a wealth of anecdotes, episodes and backstage snippets about heroes and well-known and less well-known protagonists of a peerless and magical marathon.
