Anyone with a passion for motorsport knows: there's always a lap of the track to go around. And when there is no track, you just have to invent one.
So Marco Simoncelli takes us to the hills of Romagna where, as a child, he used to ride his bike without hands, or to the central streets of Riccione, where he used to have fun slaloming on rollers at full speed among the bathers.
He opened the door to the Cava, a legendary place for motorbike racing, where professionals and enthusiasts competed all year round, and then ended up having dinner all together, with bread, salami and generous wine.
When Simoncelli became a professional rider, his story takes us to circuits all over the world where, between pole positions, straight down the straight, victories and disappointments, the air is not at all spoilt by exhaust fumes.
Reading his words today moves and above all amuses the reader, who is enchanted by the vitality of this young man full of talent, cheerfulness, desire to win and sporting values who, even when he became a super professional, never stopped being that little boy who used to scamper down the hills of Coriano at full throttle.
