Remembering Marinoni...




In the caption of the photo showing Giuseppe Campari after the finish of the 1924 French GP (April), his “strained co-driver” surely deserved to be named: he is Alfa’s chief mechanic of the time, Attilio Marinoni, himself no mean driver. He won the Spa-Francorchamps 24-hrs in 1928, ’29 and ’30. Marinoni also partnered Kaye Don in a 6C 1750 Alfa-Romeo in the 1930 ‘Double Twelve’ at Brooklands. He was killed testing a racing Alfa some time before World War II.
