Foreword by Mauro Forghieri
Today, not only the drivers, racing cars, circuits, designers and technology have changed, the whole world has. But if you have just a little nostalgia for what once was, for that which you’ve experienced or even just heard people talk about, read Temerari (The Daring), a nostalgic book devoted to the drivers and protagonists of the races of 1950-1980. People who raced for the sheer pleasure of it, for a win if they were really lucky, or maybe a record, a fastest lap time or an overtaking manoeuvre, which could sometimes be more important than a world title. People who looked death squarely in the face, because that’s what racing was like 30 years ago – even if many of them pretended not to know it. For the first time, this book publishes 60 interviews with Italian and foreign drivers whose destinies crossed at the time, people who survived the riskiest races of the 20th century.
