Birth: Jun. 8, 1892
Death: Sep. 10, 1933

Grand Prix motor racing drivers and opera singer. Born Cavaliere Giuseppe Campari near the city of Lodi, south west of Milan, Italy, he left school to work for the Alfa Romeo factory which eventually involved test driving factory cars. As his interest in cars grew, he entered in local hillclimbs and in 1914 he came fourth in the prestigious Targa Florio. After WWI he resumed racing with Alfa Romeo cars and in 1920 won his first major race at Mugello. In 1921 he came third in the Targa Florio and in 1924, as part of a strong Alfa team with Brilli-Peri and Ascari in Alfa Romeo P2s, he won the French Grand Prix. Campari also loved food, and ate heavily, as well as opera. He had a world-class baritone voice. The 1925 season was not so successful as Alfa withdrew from racing after the death of his team mate Ascari. In 1928 he won the Mille Miglia and a 2nd place in the Targa Florio. He continued to gain successes and became one of the leading Grand Prix drivers.By 1933 he'd joined the Maserati team and at the age of 41 had decided to retire at the end of the season to concentrate on opera singing. At the Italian GP at Monza in September, in his final race, he crashed on spilled oil whilst leading. His team mate Borzachini who was immediately behind him skidded off the track and was also killed. After the restart, a third driver crashed and was killed.
