Hello, i am also trying to contact Mr. He lived modestly in the small medieval village of Budrio east of Bologna.

It seems like everyone would like to contact Matt Spitzley – including me! For instance, he had over glass plates of the Italian Grand Prix meeting, which was the first Italian Grand Prix held at Brescia before it moved to Monza the following year.
We talked for ages and it is a happy memory of a memorable man. Despite being some fifty five years old they are still amongst the most elegant post-war Bentleys.
I have not seen him since the mid s when a I drove in the British F3 series in a Docking Spitzley car, and b Matt kindly restored a Ferrari for me. I am trying to get in touch with Matt Spitzley regardin images from the Zagari collection. His study and darkroom were an absolute delight — an ordered chaos brimming with images and memorabilia of his life. Matt Spitzley regarding the Zagari collection, i need to find a photo of a car at the Mille Miglia.

If you can direct me to the Goddard and Monkhouse collections I would be grateful. This meeting lasted spiitzley week and not only had races for cars but motor cycles, bicycles and even airplanes.
Franco Zagari was never one to promote himself. There is a thread with an email for him but it is inactive. Former historic racing driver and past owner of one of the Ecurie Ecosse D-type Jaguars, Neil Corner, persuaded four other entrants to come along with their Bentley Continental R types and so we had the unique experience of five of these elegant cars of the early s each of them subtly different.
It was the obvious car to choose for the opening day when went cross country and over Glencoe to the lunch stop at Airds hotel at Port Appin. I successfully contacted Matt Spitzley at the Zagari Collection. Do you already have an account? He maty found rafing strange that he had met a Scotsman who did not drink the whisky he always proffered before we sat down to talk.

Got through to him and Diana. The light car race was won convincingly by Bugatti with the new Type 13 which thereafter was always called the Brescia. You must be logged in to post a comment.
