Nanni asks for info on this, apparently a recent discovery, judging from the entry no.:

Please add new material, if you have any.

I'm always wondering...
Motorsportmemorial often indicates the sources at the end of its entries.
If Nanni or someone else actually has these sources, why doesn't he make them available for us?
It would really help.
The Autosprints, some newspaper articles, etc.

You are right, and I don't know.

I don't think Nanni owns the sources, the contributors do.
Racing is living and everything that happens in between is just waiting.

I get everything from him in terms of visual media, and upload it here, immediately. Possibly, most of the sources are articles, mentions.

Well, I've often looked for sources that were mentioned in the Motorsportmemorial entries, and, sometimes, I found some new stuff.
