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.

VITE DI CORSA Incontri in pista con piloti, manager, astronauti, cantanti, gente strana

Why Vite di corsa (racing lives)? Because this book is not a novel but a rather serious narrative of meetings, many of them taking place within or through the motor racing environment, where the stars are “transient” as they speed across the most diverse of years. Captains of industry, racing drivers, managers, designers, musicians, even an astronaut and a footballer are among the most famous people the author has met during F1 Grand Prix days. He has delved deeply into a number of such people, others less so, but he has always received a powerful impact that has generated highly personal sensations and considerations. So here is a wide-ranging selection of great names seen up close, as rarely happens, with all their strength, charisma and weaknesses. A picture of a special world, exclusive, sometimes able to transmit unexpected sentiments. The people the author has selected as the stars of this book are: Gianni Agnelli, Giovannino Agnelli, Jean Alesi, Mario Andretti, Flavio Briatore, Mario e Vittorio Cecchi Gori, Pete Conrad, Gian Paolo Dallara, Bernie Ecclestone, Enzo Ferrari, Mauro Forghieri, Lewis Hamilton, George Harrison, James Hunt, Niki Lauda, Joe Macaluso, Diego Armando Maradona, Sergio Marchionne, Carlos Menem, Sandro Munari, Alessandro Onassis, Clay Regazzoni, Cesare Romiti, Ayrton Senna, Sebastian Vettel, Gilles Villeneuve and Jacques Villeneuve

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.

DON RUSPA Vita straordinaria del prete Formula 1



A priest with a passion for racing? Is that possible? The answer is ‘yes’, judging by the story of Don Sergio Mantovani, which has never been told before. He was nicknamed Don Ruspa (Father Bulldozer) by Enzo Ferrari (he had a small Gothic parish church in the Modena area demolished over night to make room for an old folks’ home…after the authorities had refused their authorisation!!!) From the mid-Fifties, Don Ruspa became the friend and confidante of some of the greatest Formula 1 drivers, among them Fangio, Bandini, Lauda, De Angelis, right through to today’s champions. His story is told in an easy-reading book by the ever able pen of Cesare De Agostini who, after a long interview with Don Sergio, really does reconstruct the life, death and miracles of this racers’ priest.
