Gigi Pirollo, a veteran navigator up there with the likes of Christopher Columbus and Ferdinand Magellan. In this case, however, we are talking about the history of rallying from the heroic 1970s through to the present day. Over 40 years in a career like few others. Italian, European and World Champion, Gigi has “navigated” for all the great names of Italian rallying: Alex Fiorio, Franco Cunico, Adartico Vudafieri, Andrea Zanussi, Carlo Capone and many others. Icons of a speciality that, over time, has moved on from the heroic tracks of the San Martino to the snows of Monte Carlo and the perhaps less adventurous present day reality but which still has plenty of stories to tell. Gigi’s was a precocious vocation, nurtured on the hairpins of the Giau Pass and consolidated at the Castelfranco Veneto “University of Rallying”, one of the capitals of Italian rallying of the time. In a first person story (the reader will feel as though they are sharing every step of Gigi’s career, directly from the cockpit), this book presents an anthology of experiences, many previously unpublished from Finland to the Safari Rally and Kenya. From the tracks of Oregon to distant Australia, with a single objective: to win at all costs. Always. A rich parade of photographs illustrates a unique story, written jointly with Giancarlo Saran.
