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.

DESTRA3 LUNGA CHIUDE Quando i rally avevano un’anima

The rallies of yesterday, the ones that spanned 30 years from 1960 to 1990 were not just simple races, but a concentration of adventure. They were excessively long, tortured that took place over of roads with impossible surfaces, the drivers always prepared for the worst. Day and night, searing sun or pouring craven rain, then snow and fog, dust and ice. The drivers had to compete in cars that broke, fitted with tyres unable to withstand the harshness of it all. A perfect contest to generate an incredible story. So here is a collection of various facts, many of which it has been difficult to track down, which could help those who were there at the time to remember, and those who weren’t to get to know. Page after page review an unrepeatable era in which there were not just the winners, but the surrounding companies, defeats born with the same dignity as victories, painful team orders and those who made generous gestures in renouncing a win to help a colleague in difficulty.
Fifty incredible stories that bring out once more recollections the memory cannot cancel. Times when rallies really were rallies. Things that happened that really were over the top, sometimes a good situation because, although they seem like romanticised tales, they were no more than the rule in those days. Carlo Cavicchi competed in just such rallies and wrote about them in the Italian motor sport magazines Autosprint and Rombo. Now, he has reopened his notebook and extracted the best of the best from it. Some stories really do induce dreams, told as they are by Jean-Claude Andruet, Attilio Bettega, Dario Cerrato, Hannu Mikkola, Raffaele Pinto, Tony Fassina, Luciano Trombottto, Maurizio Verini, Mauro Pregliasco, Sergio Barbasio and Amilcare Ballestreri. All rally drivers who really did write the history of their period. And all of them told by a great professional of the sport, Carlo Cavacchi.

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.
