Profile

Toni Branca raced for a number of seasons in the 1950s without ever making much impression, and it was reported his career was financed by a wealthy Belgian countess, the Vicomtesse de Walkiers. As in effect a privateer driving a Maserati, he raced Formula One and Two with a best of fourth in a minor F1 race, and then switched to sports cars, twice entering but not starting the Le Mans 24-Hour, as well as hillclimbing.
