Red like many of the Ferraris that have passed through his workshop in Bologna that, from the early Sixties to the present day, has been an authentic worldwide point of reference for enthusiasts of the Prancing Horse and other marques. In his long career as an “independent”, Mingarelli, the man, the mechanic, the enthusiast capable of winning over a figure as charismatic as Enzo Ferrari, worked on almost all the road-going and racing Ferraris to come out of the Maranello factory. Moreover, his workshop, run together with his business partner and fried Rizzoli, has been a Mecca for collectors, enthusiasts and great drivers such as Clay Regazzoni, with whom “Il Rosso” has establish profound and enduring relationships.

LE DERIVATE TUTTE LE GARE PER “MOTO DI SERIE” NEGLI ANNI 70

An important period in motorcycling was that of ‘production derivatives’, the bikes that competed in short, nervous races or in the legendary 500 kilometres events. The list includes mechanics and industrialists, elite teams and simple workshops, British, Italian and Japanese motorcycles. The elegant Koelliker-Triumph team challenged the Moto Guzzis of the Brambilla brothers, the Laverdas of the Venetians and Tuscans. The Hondas took on each other, ridden by Bonera and Del Carro of Milan and Pelletier and Piccirilli of Rome and their respective preparers. Riders who also competed include Franco Uncini, Virginio Ferrari and Marco Lucchinelli, all at the start of their fabulous careers. This and more appears in a 160-pages book that also contains complete results tables of the races that took place from 1970 to 1979.

LANCIA BETA MONTECARLO

The Lancia Beta was inaugurated in 1972 with the launch of the saloon. The range was expanded three years later by the addition of the “Beta Montecarlo”, a model that soon became part of the Italian motoring history. Introduced at the 1975 Turin Motor Show, the new coupé immediately attracted public interest and admiration for its authentic sporting character, confirmed by its assertive and fascinating body, designed by Pininfarina, and in its two-litre, 118 hp engine. It was no coincidence that the newborn enjoyed a busy racing career: the Group 5 turbo version even enabled Lancia to beat Porsche and win the World Championship for Makes in both 1980 and 1981. This book is entirely devoted to the history of the Beta Montecarlo, covering the technical and stylistic evolution of the various series and, naturally, the coupé’s successful motor racing life – a book that just had to become one of the series focusing on cars that have made history.
