The Lancia Marino


If you are an enthusiast for Lancia this 20 page little booklet written in English and with many photographs is about two Lancia racing cars built and developed by Marino Brandoli who was born in Modena in 1908 and was fascinated by engines which started when his father bought an American combine harvester for his farm. His passion turned to cars and he was fortunate to be hired by the Maserati brothers for the testing department and did some motorcycle racing on the side. He moved to Turin and during WWII developed systems to produce charcoal gas to power cars. After the war he designed his own 1100cc Fiat sports car that he drove in the 1946 Mille Miglia.

In 1954 he designed not only a racing sports car but a Formula 1 car, the Lancia Marino which mainly ran in hill climbs. However in 1957 he ran the Lancia Marino in the Naples Grand Prix against the factory Ferraris. The car featured a 2.5 litre Lancia B20 engine. It was an interesting design but was never going to win any Formula 1 races. When Brandoli retired at the end of 1957 the car disappeared but re-appeared at the 2012 Monaco Historic race meeting driven by former grand prix driver Beppe Gabbiani ( See separate phot0)
