Road Race written by Chris Jones

In 1973 the Targa Florio died, and with it a whole tradition of European road racing. In Argentina road racing survives, but even there the great road races have passed: the stock cars no longer compete in the Buenos Aires – Lima – Buenos Aires race that made Juan Manuel Fangio famous or in the Buenos Aires – Caracas race that killed his best friend.

This is the story of the great road races : both the classics like the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio and the lesser known but equally fascinating races such as the Coppa D olomiti and the Giro dell’Umbria, the Carrera Panamericana de Mexico. It tells of world famous drivers – Moss, Fangio, Ascari, Nuvolari, Nazzaro and the brothers Galvez; also of the great drivers whose names are beginning to Fade – Biondetti, Trips, Marzotto, Kiling, Bracco and Minola.
