Profile

Carlo Franchi's briefest of Formula One careers came when he entered the 1978 Italian Grand Prix driving a Surtees TS20, but it ended when he failed to qualify. He raced almost exclusively in Italy in Italian cars and achieved little. He never took part in a race under his own name, preferring the pseudonym of 'Gimax' - his son also raced under that name.
