Tazio Nuvolari [1892-1953] is widely regarded the greatest racing driver of all time. Through the
1930s and into the 1940s Nuvolari's reputation for skill and bravery eclipsed a whole generation
of rivals. Even today his name alone evokes a classic era in the history of road and Grand Prix
racing. Christopher Hilton seeks to understand Nuvolari the man and the Nuvolari legend as it
unfolded, using original documentary material, period race reports from several countries and
the recollections of Nuvolari's contemporaries. The author goes into detail particular as to fol-
lowing listed races: Mille Miglia 1930, Grand Prix of Monaco 1932 and 1933, the Tripoli Grand
Prix 1933, Le Mans 1933, Nürburgring 1935, Vanderbilt Cup 1936, Grand Prix of Belgrade 1939
and the Mille Miglia in 1948.
