Footnotes

  • Maglioli won the 1952 title of Italian Champion in the category International Touring Car over 1500cc, driving a Lancia Aurelia B21 in events like Mille Miglia, where he took first in class. In the 1953 International Sestriere Rallye, he drove a Lancia Aurelia B20GT, winning some stages but later crashing. The 1953 medal is believed to be in recognition of one of the stages. In the Freiburg-Schauinsland hillclimb (valid for the European Championship), Maglioli came second overall in a Porsche 718 RS.
