Tuesday, June 11, 2019
book dedicated to the automotive career of the famous Mantuan driver, with photos of the most beautiful cars that he has conducted in the race on the most important circuits.
Fruit of the last literary work of the writer and journalist Gianni Tomazzoni; has required more than a year of research in the historical archives of motoring.
Luigi Moreschi from Quingentole (Mantua), born in 1947, made his debut in motoring competitions at the age of seventeen, taking part, without a license and with a helmet and goggles to avoid being recognized, at the Trial Lumezzane Coppa Cantoni time trial on September 5, 1965. He does so on board his own Austin Healey registered, for the occasion and for obvious reasons, by his friend Flavio Giosuè, a driver who will then appear in the official rankings of the race.
This first “clandestine” experience will be the fuse that will ignite the fire of passion in Luigi Moreschi and with this premise begins the wonderful story of the volume that collects the secrets of an inimitable career always conducted on the wire of 300 Km per hour. More than five hundred races played alternately in the cockpit of over four hundred different cars, six participations in the Targa Florio and twenty-nine appearances in the World Championship races held in the most famous circuits and against highly respected opponents, won two Giri dell’Umbria and he has obtained an endless series of absolute victories in the uphill races and in those on the track both with modern cars and with the motorcycles, the second true passion of Luigi Moreschi.
In fact, at the dawn of the 90s, Moreschi Motorsport was born in Quingentole, a company specialized in the production of restorations and specific preparations dedicated to the world of competition veterans.
Osella, Abarth, March, Chevron, BMW, Ford, Bizzarrini, Dallara, Lola, Porsche, AMS are just some of the most representative brands of all those treated in the Mantuan atelier where the experience gained by Luigi in many years of racing, is made available to customers-friends riders.
