It is the period of the great world championship rallies of the 1980s and 1990s, and at the top of the rankings appears the name of an Italian driver with an alarming frequency: Miki Biasion. That period went on to enshrine him in history as the greatest Italian rally driver ever, and one of the top ten in the history of rallying: two-time world champion, winner of 17 world championship events, which included double victories in the famous Monte Carlo Rally and especially the two consecutive ones in the legendary Safari in Kenya.
Biasion remembers, with an exciting, incisive and direct narrative style, that unforgettable sporting period through his sensational 17 victories, which can be described as “Seventeen steps in history”. Like all good story-tellers, the Italian ace describes the opponents he clashed against all the time, reveals the background that led to this or that victory, explains the Lancia Deltas that he powered to success in unforgettable races and recalls the challenges at each different latitude.
In the production of this new book, Miki Biasion wanted by his side his loyal navigator Tiziano Siviero – today like yesterday – in order to rewind the tape of memories of those who experienced all sorts of racing and human adventure from the co-drivers’ seat, who reinvigorates a narrative plot that is already lively in itself.
The over seventy spectacular colour photos, many of which are unpublished, complete this book of great emotional impact, which draws the reader into an unrepeatable era of rallying.
