Italy is the land of small racing car manufacturers. Some have become famous, others less so, but all, in one way or another, have made a valuable contribution to technical progress.
Rovigno Rimondi is one of them: from Bologna, he has always been passionate about mechanics. In 1967, after training as a mechanic and tuner, he decided to take up the challenge and become a constructor, with the name Raymond.
His first car, a Formula 3, although a handmade one, achieved good results and Rimondi decided to continue his career as a constructor with Sport cars, his favourite.
In 1971, he built his most famous car, the so-called 'Zanzara', driven by Romano Martini, which gave more than a little trouble to the more noble Abarth, even winning the overall at the Mendola. Two more Sports cars followed in 1972 and 1973.
In 112 pages the author, David Tarallo, recounts the history and stories of those years, through documents, testimonies and anecdotes gathered from those directly involved. The text is completed by more than 170 photos - most of them unpublished - and some appendices, including a list of the results obtained by the Raymonds on the track and uphill.
