Great drivers and racers

Italy and its drivers and racers (even imported): a repertoire of stories of unconditional affection and legendary victories.

Several tricolour binomials remain in the imagination of the fans: Villeneuve-Ferrari, Fangio-Maserati (but also Ferrari and Alfa Romeo), Agostini-MV Agusta, just to mention a few. Among the competition languages in the car and motorcycle racing field, Italian occupies a special and respected place worldwide.
