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 In this book, his story is told, peppered with previously unpublished photographs, through a “particular” interview, a discussion between people he has always known.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.

MORE THAN 24 HOURS LE MANS 2006

Ruben Anders and Joost Rijkhoek have published the third edition of their Le Mans Annual. ?The style is slightly different again this year, at the request of the ACO. Rather than a purely photographic record of the race (as in 2004), or a photographic record plus race report (as in 2005), this time the images are complemented by extended captions, to explain the flow of the race and the major incidents. ?As before, there are still hundreds of photographs depicting the event - the atmosphere, the people, the crowds and the cars – but this time there’s a section devoted to the centenary of the first Automobile Club de France Grand Prix, organised by The Automobile Club de la Sarthe, the forerunner of the ACO.
