RACE RESULTS  -  PRE-HISTORIC SERIES

French & Italian Championship races


Non-championship races in the mid-1950s could be divided up into different categories.     As well as individual races in various European countries, there were national championships held in France and Italy.     I am counting all races held on circuits in those 2 countries towards these 2 championships.

Here are the Italian Championship results:
