There is a monument on the main road between Spoltore and Cappelle Sul Tavo, positioned very near the bend Jack Brabham nearly lost his life. No wonder he says Pescara was the most dangerous of all the Grand Prix road courses.

We'll definitely look out for that when/if we're down again.........

And I've just checked that this book is available as a Kindle edition for €3.99 so it will be my bedtime reading for a few days.

Thanks Relaxed, been meaning to get Amazon set up for Italy so this might make me get on with it  ;). I've just got a shipping order from Euro Car Parts so I'll bring some out next time I drive but would be good to get it sorted in Italy. I'll check Amazon, thanks.

I read the book about this a few years ago, well worth a read. Some drivers had a very lucky escape on the 'Spoltore bend'.

Link below if interested in reading more.

Thanks. Great if you click "look inside" on Amazon, couple of pages down is a MAP... ;D

Amazon maybe? They sell it, but I don't know how competitive their price is.

All the more fascinating to those that know the area! Wonder if a map of the circuit could be dug up? I can see the hill coming down from Spoltore, but wonder which way they went after Capelle sul Tavo to Montesilvano? Thanks for the link…
