Tazio Nuvolari Had Advice For You

I have saved this newspaper clipping from the LA Times for 10 years, and cut it out from a story when I was getting the paper delivered daily when I first moved to California. Wish I had a chance to photograph Nuvolari. Sounded like an interesting guy.

Tazio Nuvolari was born on November 16, 1892. He had 46 major road victories. Prior to auto racing, Nuvolari won the 35o cc motorcycle European Grand Prix in 1925, and was a Nations Grand Prix winner 4 times. Nuvolari was left partially paralyzed from a stroke in 1952. Ironically he died in bed a year later from a second stroke at the age 60 on August 11, 1953.

  1. Awesome article. You are so right about the online comparison. I have a bunch of stuff that I’ve copy and pasted into a word file over time, but the ones I cherish most are the clippings I can actually hold in my hand, carry in my wallet, or tack up for viewing. A digital copy just doesn’t seem to have the same inspiration to it.
