《恩佐.法拉利》
作者:布洛克.耶茨

近十年世界一級方程式錦標賽,英國的「黑帝」咸美頓與德國的維度爾可說鬥得難分難解。今年賽事將完,最終錦標花落誰家,實令車迷翹首以待。

維度爾自2015年賽季起加盟法拉利,至今一直未能成功為該隊折桂。事實上,在舒麥加年代過後,法拉利車隊氣勢已今非昔比。近幾年,它的光芒已被紅牛及平治車隊掩蓋。

不過對於大部分港人來說,說起「法拉利」未必會立刻想到一級方程式,反而更會聯想到名貴跑車。這個象徵身份地位的名字如此家喻戶曉,但大家對於法拉利創辦者認識又有幾多?

經常架起墨鏡的恩佐.法拉利(1898-1988),形象向來神秘。有傳這是因為唯一親生兒子迪諾早逝,令他深受打擊,才會變得鬱鬱寡歡。事實上,在19世紀末出生的恩佐,人生經歷了兩場世界大戰,當過車手,創立過車隊,在二戰後銳意創業,最終成為全球知名傑出品牌,本身經歷極富傳奇,閱讀其人生經歷已經尤勝小說情節。

《恩佐.法拉利》的美籍作者布洛克.耶茨為撰此書,歷時數年,採訪逾百位與恩佐共事之人,挖掘出大量翔實細節,力求還原這位意大利國寶級人物的真實面貌。此書去年更被中國上海法拉利俱樂部翻譯成中文出版,如果閣下對這位車壇傳奇有興趣的話,這本近500頁的大作實在不容錯過。

Enzo Ferrari
Author: Brock Yates

Speaking of Ferrari, most Hong Kong people don’t immediately think of Formula One, instead associating the name with luxury sports cars that symbolize status, but how much do you know about its founder?

Enzo Ferrari was born in the late 19th century and lived through the two world wars. He was a race car driver and built a race team. He became an entrepreneur after the Second World War, eventually founding the successful, world-renowned marque.

American author Brock Yates spent several years visiting hundreds of people who worked with Enzo, digging up details to give readers a comprehensive understanding of the legendary Italian. If you are interested in the racing legend, you should not miss this book.

About the writer: Uncle Shrimp loves reading, writing and athletics, and hopes he can continue exploring the world through sports.
