Many drivers are forced to take up odd jobs in support of their racing but not many had to resort to becoming a Banana Salesman! Who was this Mille Miglia champion?

And here's a BIG hint: One year he attempted to build his own car for the race whose motor was based on 8 Norton motorcycle engines!

Drat I made it too easy. So what gave it up? The Bananas or the 8 Norton engines?

No I don't. I need to get a good book on the Traga Florio. Most of my stuff is on Grand Prix racing and less so the sports cars.

Dennis:

As you should be able to tell by my name (Dr.Etceterini), I'm an "etceterini" (and therefore, MM and Targa) nut. The 8 Norton engines and not the bananas gave it away. There is a picture of the car in the book La Sport E I Suoi Artigiani 1937-1965.

The best Targa Florio book I have found (although it covers only the Giro and not all of the races) is: Il Mitico Giro di Sicilia, published by Nada
