Registered but did not Start:

  • #67 – BARBA/GAROFALO – Autobianchi Giliberti A112 (S1.3)
  • #24 – FERLAINO/CASTRO – Chevron Ford B19 (S2)

The Piccolo circuit, starting at Floriopoli just north of Cerda would prove enough of a challenge as it did back in the early 1970’s.

Crowds everywhere lined the roadside. Some were lucky to have a front row seat.

Some other entries were registered but did not start the race…Joe Siffert readies himself before the race. He would partner with two other drivers in this edition of the Targa… When the green flag fell Giovanni Scalera was the first away in his Porsche 912. The rest would follow.
