Nino Vaccarella - Targa Florio 1965
After winning the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans, the former headmaster of a
nearby school became the local hero of the Targa Florio race after winning
in 1965, then repeating in 1971 and again in 1975, when it was no more a
World Sportscar Championship event. He also drove the big V12-powered
Ferrari 512S in a heroic yet ultimately losing effort in 1970, damaging the
car in the final stages.
Vaccarella participated in five World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on
10 September 1961. He scored no championship points. He also participated
in several non-Championship Formula One races.
