The words “Elio De Angelis, piano player, and gentlemen” always seemed to go hand in hand whenever journalists wrote about the young Italian driver. However, there was so much more to Elio. Elio started racing in karts, progressed to F3, then to Formula 1 with Shadow, before joining Lotus as Number two to Mario Andretti. A year later he was the youngest driver to have the primary seat in a F1 team. His team mate was Nigel Mansell and the partnership developed into a great friendship.
This Limited Edition of the 208-page, 11x11-inch book, REMEMBERING ELIO by Lorie Coffey is presented in a slipcase and is signed and numbered by F1 World Champion and Indycar series winner Nigel Mansell. The book truly gives an insight into a fun loving man with stories that will make you both laugh, and cry. With a foreword also by Nigel Mansell this is a detailed account of a young mans life and racing career, and was written with the full help and support of the De Angelis family.
