Vittorio Brambilla was the last of the romantic drivers. It was the same for him whether he was driving a motorcycle, a kart, a F3, F2, F1 or a Prototype. He raced to satisfy his passion for racing and had learnt the craft well: he was frequently faster than rivals blessed with superior technical and financial resources. 
His racing reflected his personality: a courageous man but not to take unnecessary risks, a passionate but sensitive and technically competent driver. Vittorio had speed in his blood. He earned a longed for drive in Formula 1 after years of paying his dues on the circuits of Europe, with cars that were not always at the cutting edge but were always driven with the awareness typical of those straightforward, generous people who know they can succeed. Vittorio certainly succeeded and probably deserved very different results.
A book about “Vittorione”, one that emphasises the incomparable human qualities that are worth so much more than any laurels has been a long time coming. A collection of photographs, many previously unpublished, enhance this invaluable account of the motorsport and racing of the recent past.

TINO BRAMBILLA: Mi è sempre piaciuto vincere - COPIA FIRMATA DA TINO BRAMBILLA E WALTER CONSONNI! / SIGNED COPY BY TINO BRAMBILLA E WALTER CONSONNI!

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 In this book, his story is told, peppered with previously unpublished photographs, through a “particular” interview, a discussion between people he has always known.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