On This Day


Wednesday 7th December 1988

The organisers of the traditional end of year Bologna Motor Show had the idea to attract the crowds to the 1988 edition with a two day Sprint event featuring real Formula 1 drivers and cars. Of course the front runners snubbed the idea to have their machinery flying over a parking lot at an average of 85 km/h, but all of the Italian teams, except Ferrari were present with the likes of Alex Caffi (BMS Dallara F1 88A), Nicola Larini (Osella FA1/L), Fabrizio Barbazza (EuroBrun ER188), Gabriele Tarquini (First 188), Luis Perez Sala and Pierluigi Martini (Minardi M188) eagerly hammering the monoposti around the parcours.
