The desire to become racing drivers, even memorable aces, has always been in the hearts of thousands of enthusiasts. All keen to cross over the dazzling borders beyond which there are podia, cups and laurels. As they have waited, they have always given themselves advance popularity, fame, glory and, perhaps, among the excesses, pathetic certainties and even madness. They are the great vocations that have remained sterile, an unexplored, unknown world because nobody has ever dared to write about an inexistent career, populated by autographs never signed, tracks never raced on, popularity never experienced and champions loved but never met. These are the myriad of emotions, dreams and state of mind that Cesare De Agostini, who has never been a racing driver, tries to transmit to his readers with that unmistakable prose of his.

Enzo Lazzarini tells of the early years of the adventure that took his brother Eugenio to a glittering racing career, winning three world titles, eight second places and four Italian championships. A major undertaking that began after Enzo’s career was suddenly halted by a dramatic accident that completely changed his life. An iron will, a tremendous desire to live and an ability to work beyond the imaginable. Qualities that enabled Enzo and Eugenio to open a concessionaire by day that was transformed into a workshop by night, from which emerged the prodigious Lazzarini/Piovaticci 125 single cylinders at first and the surprising Piovaticci twin-cylinder 250 soon afterwards. Financial problems and technical difficulties were faced with a healthy “craziness”, step-by-step, without stopping for a second until they achieved a splendid victory in the 125 cc class of the 1973 Grand Prix of Holland. In the midst of pain, worries, preoccupations, doubts, disappointments and torment there was also joy, the successes and conquests of a man who, today, has become a successful businessman. Demonstrating that with the right will and strength of character nothing is impossible.

TEMERARI Ricordi da corsa dei Cavalieri del rischio

Foreword by Mauro Forghieri.

Ritratto inedito del Drake: le corse, l’impresa e la vita attraverso le sue parole di innovatore. Pilota automobilistico, ingegnere, meccanico, manager, uomo di grandi visioni. E poi imprenditore, artefice delle tante vittorie che hanno fatto del marchio del cavallino rampante un mito italiano invidiato nel mondo. La complessa personalità di Enzo Ferrari, pioniere dello sport e dell’industria, merita di essere analizzata e ricordata alle giovani generazioni di innovatori, perché di un grande innovatore si è trattato, che ha fatto la storia del Made in Italy e che ha ancora molto da insegnare a chi è pronto a lanciarsi nel futuro. In questo libro della serie “In parole sue”, Pino Allievi, che ha avuto il privilegio di conoscerlo ed essergli vicino, offre un ritratto vivido e in parte inedito del pensiero del celebre costruttore: sullo sport, sull’imprenditoria ma anche sui molti personaggi della nostra storia antica e recente con cui ha avuto modo di incontrarsi e, a volte, scontrarsi, da Gianni Agnelli a Silvio Berlusconi. In un mondo in cui la velocità è ormai d’obbligo in tutti i settori, un esempio di passione sportiva e libertà imprenditoriale a cui ispirarsi per raccogliere la sfida dell’innovazione

TINO BRAMBILLA: Mi è sempre piaciuto vincere

This book tells the story of the intense life of a racing man, one of non-stop work. A life on two and four wheels, on the track and in the garage, the same hands that manipulating steering wheels and tools after having tuned connecting rods and pistons. A decades long story that sees our hero, Ernesto Brambilla, aka Tino, be born and living his life at Monza, forever the capital of motor racing. He is the man who has been a faithful ambassador to the sport since he was little more than a lad, challenging footpaths and straw bales throughout Italy, which was in full renaissance. Once he had become an adult, he challenged destiny and rivals in dozens of races, from those in “his” National Autodrome and on to those at which he competed in faraway places, like Buenos Aires,  with triumphs at Hockenheim and in the terrible Tourist Trophy. In this book, his story is told, peppered with previously unpublished photographs, through a “particular” interview, a discussion between people he has always known. The author, Walter Consonni, was born and raised amid the legend of the Brambilla brothers. Like his brother Peo, he was also a student of Tino’s and lived the unique human and sporting dramas from his home courtyard in the centre of Monza. Races, tests, titles, tragedies. MV Augusta and Ferrari, the ascent of his brother Vittorio. His retirement from the track, but not from his exuberances. But there is a lot more in this book, in which a man who partially reached the finish line of the ‘80s, looks back and relives with pleasure and serenity a unique era. One in which racing often walked hand-in-hand with death in the quest to win.
