description
Over a 15 year period from 1947 to 1961, Berardo Taraschi built in its workshop in Teramo, Italy, 118 small capacity racing cars, including at least 63 Formula Junior. In the years Meccanica Taraschi used different trade-marks like Urania, Giaur and Taraschi and he had among his clients young drivers destinated to a brilliant future as Maria Teresa De Filippis, Luigi Musso and Colin Davis.

In 1947 Berardo Taraschi had begun building sports and competition cars under the name Urania. Following some racing success, Taraschi had struck a deal with Domenico and Attilio Giannini whereby they would provide him with their own Giannini engines. The contraction of GIAnnini and URania led to a new Italian marque known as Giaur and the resulting cars were truly wonderful. In the same period Giaur was also a name of a famous race-winner horse.

The car was built with a tubular chassis by Meccanica Taraschi and was fitted with the G1 engine by Giannini. It was a single overhead cammer (derived from the Fiat Topolino unit) whereas the later G2 engine had twin overhead cams.

Giaur chassis BT-004 was completed in 1950 and sold new to Italo Arlini-Di Brigida from Pineto, Italy. He soon raced it in the 1950 Mille Miglia where it finished 71st overall and 6th in class. The Giaur was sold to Gustavo Laureati of Grottammare who teamed with driver Elio Celani and DNFed with the car at the ’51 MM. Laureati and the Giaur tried again at the ’53 MM. Now teamed with co-driver Amedeo Francescangeli, the car placed 161st overall and 11th in Class. Following this, brothers Francesco and Vincenzo raced the Giaur at the 1954 MM where they placed 156th overall and 12th in Class. The car then was raced at a variety of events including Circuito di Salerno, Circuito di Terni, Vermicino-Rocca di Papa Hillclimb and several other local events. In late 1955 Francesco De Angelis traded BT-004 to seasoned racer Alfredo Tinazzo for an Alfa Romeo 1900.
