1 car is counted for this anniversary

Pietro Ghersi (Genova, 1899 – Genova, 1 agosto 1972) was one of the foremost Italian motorcycle racers during the 20s and the early 30s. He alternated between car and motorcycle racing after 1927, when he began with an OM, followed by Alfa Romeo and Maserati sports cars. He became a Scuderia Ferrari driver in 1934, then raced his own Maserati 8CM during 1935-36. Ghersi was very active in national car races with rare forays to France, Germany, Swiss whereas he was a true international competitor in motorcycles, finishing second once in the TT. His victories are limited to Italian sports car road races and hillclimbs. Amongst the latter he is twice the winner of his home race, the Pontedecimo-Giovi.

 

We'll publish a biography on him on the occasion of his anniversary or when it will reach a sufficient number of cars.
