Biography

The name of Sandro Cinotti is among the lesser known of the drivers to have driven for Ron Dennis. He won an Italian Formula 3 race (the 1973 Gran Premio Novolan at Casale) when his Scuderia Nettuno Brabham BT35-Ford came from the fifth row to beat Alberto Colombo in the final.

Formula 2 with Project Three Racing

Cinotto had little else in the way of results to recommend him when he raced a Project Three Racing March 752-BMW in the 1975 European Formula 2 Championship – an arrangement eased by sponsorship from Scaini.

His F2 career began with his best result in the category. Cinotti qualified for the 1975 Eifelrennen in 10th position and finished fifth on aggregate over two heats on the old Nürburgring. Emerging Formula 1 star Patrick Depailler showed the team’s competitive edge by finishing third at Pau but Cinotti did not score points again.

Subsequent career

Unable to qualify for his one F2 race of 1976, he raced sporadically in F3 that year and the next without tangible success. He returned for another F2 campaign in 1978 when driving a Roloil-sponsored Chevron B42-BMW among the backmarkers. He then continued to appear from time-to-time in sports cars until 1982, always with a similar lack of success.
