The Bianchi family emigrated from northern Italy to Belgium in the early 1950s and was adopted very quickly into the microcosm of the Belgian automobile world. In the beginning it was the exceptional mechanical skill of Roberto, before the talents of his sons Lucien and Mauro caught attention. They raced for the Equipe Nationale Belge and prestigious teams such as Citroën, Abarth, Alpine-Renault, Ford, Cooper or Alfa Romeo. But the story of the family is overshadowed by tragedies: Mauro got badly injured in a fire accident in Le Mans, Lucien did at the same track in the following year and the fatal accident of Mauro's son Jules, has sealed the fate of the Bianchis.
This book tells the story of the family until the death of Lucien race by race and with many personal images. The career of Jules Bianchi is also featured in a long chapter.
