A prestigious work of 280 pages in which Gianni Tomazzoni collected more than 470 pictures, most of them unpublished, and the firsthand testimony of drivers, technicians and journalists that had a place in the fascinating competitive and professional story of the great manufacturer Enzo Osella from Turin.
Since the dawn of a little boy wanting to be a driver, through the legendary Abarth garages, to reach the first prototypes branded Abarth-Osella, and then the lucky PA series.
The Formula 2 with which Eddie Chever nearly won in the European Championship before getting to the great world of the Formula 1, ten seasons side by side with the motor racing starscollecting small satisfactions but also so much “poison”. The return to the barchettas with which Osella won both in the Hill Climb races and on the world’s most prestigious tracks.
A story full of humanity coming out from the words of Enzo Osella himself but also from the testimony of the people who had the pleasure, in many ways, to collaborate with him during this half century of motorsport passion, including the Rai journalist Ezio Zermiani, appreciated by everybody for his live broadcasts from the starting grid of every Grand Prix, the author of the preface.
