Papa Rossi Was One Fast Man

Graziano Rossi, better known as Valentino’s dad, shown in 1980. Graziano never raced a full GP season, but he performed amazingly well when he did race. Look at 1979 as an example – Graziano was on the podium in every 250cc Grand Prix round he finished, and he won three of those rounds. In 1980 he scored a pair of podiums in the 500cc GP class. It understandable that Papa Rossi is best known for being Valentino’s dad, but he undoubtedly had a solid racing record in his own right. (Cycle News photo)
