Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I tell you in MP, Tazio.
Do you remember what "accessory" he lost while driving a Cisitalia? EB? RB?

Max, we're looking for a famous photographer and singer too. Song by Lucio Dalla… La bande dessinée de référence est Grand Prix… Think Magnette…

Several parts but you refer to a mudguard!

I dont remember the Cisitalia D46 having any mudguard. What he lost is the steering wheel! Try yourself, very different…*`

The WMF is an hotel located in Costa Rica, is it the answer? Or is it related to confiture?

Love you Bob. Really. OK, must confess have been a little bit pushy, but the virus situation is no fun atm here. Wont do it again… today!

That was all I could think of, when he drove with one spoke remaining on the column. I would hardly call a steering wheel an accessory, it is more of a necessity.

In 1946 he raced at the Grand Prix of Marseilles doing the fastest lap before his engine let him down. In another minor race he had the steering wheel come off his car yet managed to return to the pits holding the wheel in one hand and the steering column with the other.

His last Mille Miglia, in 1948, was a defining moment in his illustrious career. Driving as if possessed, his car taking a terrible beating, speeding along, the bonnet somehow became unfastened, and a gust of wind blew it over Nuvolari's head and down the mountainside. "That's better," shouted Tazio to his terrified mechanic, "The engine will cool more easily." Crossing the Futa ands Raticosa passes his seat had started to come adrift. Nuvolari could feel himself sliding which brought along a feeling of sea-sickness. Tossing the seat out he used a bag of lemons and oranges as a cushion. With his car literally falling apart under his super human effort the team advised him to quit the race at Bologna fore it was folly to continue under such circumstances and if anyone, Nuvolari had nothing to prove. Nuvolari answered with a derisive gesture, putting his foot down hard and shot away along the Via Emilia. At Modena Enzo Ferrari tried to beg has old friend to retire with dignity and could only weep as he realized that the remains of the car could not possibly hold out. Disaster disaster finally struck on the next leg and all three leading cars were out of the race including Nuvolari who damaged his rear suspension at Leghorn when his brakes failed.


In my opinion one of the three greatest drivers of all time, as the modern era forbids heroics, only results.

Well obviously that was Tazio Nuvolari. The picture of the K3 gave it away. He won the 1933 ARDS TT in imperious style, probably the best-known driver to race an MG outside of Sir Stirling.

You can just hear the 1940s copper - "'Ello, 'ello, 'ello, and who do we think we are - Tazio Nuvolari?"

But that of course is the Earl Howe car from the Mille Miglia - looks like Andrew Frankel driving.

Merci beaucoup pour les photos, mon Ami Robert. A real predator face, what a showman too. Panache is not enough…

When they are that size, do you still say louvres??

Apparently when askes about the inadequate brakes on the MG he replied, "No problem".

I'm sure in comparison to what he normally raced he hardly had to brake at all. i wonder how much he cost in those days?
