Mario Tadini (I)
* 1905
† Aug 1983
Bologna
?
Mario Tadini was the owner of a chain of clothing stores. He was one of the greatest all-time hillclimbers - who never showed the same talents in circuit racing - and a Scuderia Ferrari founder. As a matter of fact, most of the initial capital for the Scuderia was put down by him. Tadini, a great stylist, never raced professionally. Ferrari said that he did not like prolonged efforts and difficult courses, but that he could be as fast as everybody in a good day. Tadini tried a come-back driving in F2 for Ferrari in 1949, but soon quit. His pre-war palmarès in hill-climbs is impressive and comparable with the one of Bergmeister Hans Stuck, though less heralded.

Filippo Tassara (I)
* 1900
† 17 Aug 1953
?
?
Tassara came to be known as driver after winning the Coppa del Re at Monza in 1926. Tassara belonged to a family of affluent steel industrialists from Brescia but originally hailed from Genoa. His debut had been in the Rally Coppa del Garda in 1924. That same year he purchased a Bugatti T22. In 1926 he drove twice a Bugatti T35, at Pozzo and Roma. His participations were scarce, about 20 between 1924 and 1940, more than half of these concentrated in the years 1924/25. He became President of the Brescia Automobile Club after WWII, becoming instrumental in the rebirth and the flourishing of the Mille Miglia, teaming with Castagneto and Maggi, having taken over Mazzotti's position. He took up racing again, albeit sporadically. The apex of his career as a driver was probably when he finished the grueling 1925 Alpine Cup without penalties, driving a torpedo Bugatti T23.

Manuel de Teffé von Hoonholtz (BR)
* 30 Mar 1905
† 1 Jan 1967
Paris
Rio de Janeiro
Manuel de Teffé was, with Nascimento jr., the prominent Brazilian driver before "Chico" Landi. De Teffé's great grandfather, who had taken part in the battle of Waterloo, had moved from Preussia to Brazil 1824 as an army instructor. Manuel de Teffé was the son of the Brazilian ambassador in Rome in the 1920s and early 30s and later a diplomat himself as well. He was part of the Italian racing milieu and competed in several Mille Miglia and other Italian races, driving various Alfa Romeos. He bought a 1500 cc Maserati 6CM in 1938 (#1558?), racing a full voiturette season in Europe that year under the Scuderia Ambrosiana banner. British expatriate to Argentina Eric Forrest-Green purchased that car in 1941 and used it in Argentinian races during 1941/42. Continued racing after the war. Married Czech millionaire Dana Edita Fischerova in 1952, divorced 1960 or 1961. After the war he advanced in his diplomatic career, having missions in different countries: Uruguay 1953-56, general consul in Marseilles 1961, ambassadeur in Honduras 1965. Died in Rio de Janeiro 1967 and was buried in Petrópolis. De Teffé had been instrumental for bringing the European drivers to race in Brazil during the late 30s and was the main creator of the Gávea circuit and its races.

(Tommaso) Omobono Tenni (I)
* 24 Jul 1905
† 30 Jun (1 Jul?) 1948
?
Bern, Switzerland
Multiple Italian MC champion Omobono Tenni was one of the greatest motorcycle racers of his era. He was also one of the symbols of Moto Guzzi's history.
Tenni came from a very poor peasant background from Northern Lombardy, then moved to Treviso after WWI, where he had found a job as a mechanic. His first victory was achieved in 1924 when still a teenager. It marked the beginning of a formidable career, highlighted by a lengthy series of successes. Riding a Moto Guzzi beginning in 1933, he soon was winning everywhere on Italian racetracks and then all over Europe. In England Tenni became the first Italian to triumph in the TT. "Black Devil", "Red Bullet", "Fire-winged Centaur", "Death Defying Man" were some of his nicknames he was given, people seeing Trenni as Nuvolari's counterpart in the two-wheel world. With deep Northern Italian roots, a boundless enthusiasm, and unlimited passion for engines, he was outside the racing track a quiet, generous and simple man exemplified by the famous understated telegram that he traditionally would send to his wife after each victory: "Arrived First, Kisses, Tenni".
In the mid 30s Tenni tried his fortune in car racing. After an amazing debut at the Mille Miglia he became "semi works" Voiturette Maserati driver (Scuderia Torino) in 1936 and works Maserati driver in 1937 but Tenni did not show the same fire he had shown on two wheels with a record of 47 victories on Moto Guzzi in the period 1933-1948. Tenni died after a crash during practice for the motorcycle race at the 1948 Swiss GP, Bremgarten, the same weekend as Achille Varzi's fatal crash.

Reginald Ellis "Reggie" Tongue (GB)
* 17 Jul 1912
† 1 Jun 1992
Urmston, Manchester
Lancaster, Lancashire
Tongue was one of the better British drivers of the era. Born in a wealthy family his motor experience was "loaning" his fathers 1924 10 23 Talbot two-seater, destroying the lawn in front of the house during the process. Tongue's father died while Reggie was still at school. After some effort Reggie finally pursuated the trustees to release money for him to order a new Riley car with which he began his career in reliability trials. While at Exeter College, Oxford in 1935, he purchased Dick Seaman's MG Magnette and the next year he bought an ERA-B. He sold the ERA after the 1938 season and bought the first Maserati 4CL, giving the car its debut. He was also closely involved with the organisation of John Cobb's attack on the world land speed record. As a member of the RAF Volunteer Reserve Tongue flew Spitfires during the Battle of Britain. Later he was appointed a test pilot to Rolls-Royce. After the war his sports interests turned to sailing, shooting and, riding. He was also back to motor racing as one of the founders of the Oulton Park circuit and he also raced a Jaguar in the 1951 Monte Carlo Rally.

Ernst Ebenhart Troeltsch (later Dietrich-Troeltsch) (D)
* 30 Jul 1913
† 21 Mar 1956
Wildgutach, Schwarzwald
?
Ernst Troeltsch was the only child of famous German theologian and philosopher Ernst Troeltsch (1865 - 1923). After his father had died when he wasn't even ten years old his mother married for the second time. The name of his stepfather, a well-known politician called Hermann Dietrich (1879 - 1954) who for some years was a member of the German administration, was attached to his surname - so he officially became Ernst Dietrich-Troeltsch. In 1935/early 1936 he bought the Bugatti T51A #51134 (ex Bremme, ex Burggaller) from the heirs of Rudolf Steinweg. In 1937 he sold the car on to Leonard Joa. Died of heart failure in 1956 at an age of 42.

Conte Carlo Felice "Didi" Trossi (I)
* 27 Apr 1908
† 9 May 1949
Biella
Milano (Milan)
Trossi was in Biella north of Milan in a medieval castle that his aristocratic family owned. The family business interests included agriculture, estates in the Riviera, a woollen industry and a bank, Banco Sella. With an engineer education Trossi's hobbies included racing boats, airplanes and cars. He begun racing in 1931 taking part in rallies and hill climbs with two Mercedes-Benz SSK and a Bugatti.
At the end of 1931 he became president of Scuderia Ferrari after buying the shares of the Caniato brothers. During 1932 and 1933 he took part mostly in sports cars and hill climb events, finishing second in the 1932 Mille Miglia. During 1934 and 1935 he was a full Scuderia Ferrari Grand Prix driver, winning the 1934 Montreux, Vichy and Biella GPs. At that time also became involved in Augusto Monaco's aircraft type radial engine Grand Prix car project.
Trossi proved to be an excellent driver especially on street circuit but Enzo Ferrari's verdict was that he still was an amateur driver, not "hungry" enough to consistently be at the very top. After a disagreement with Ferrari he sold his shares of the Scuderia to Alfa Romeo at the end of 1935 and for 1936 formed Scuderia Torino, racing Maseratis with works support in the voiturette class and later joining the Maserati works team. He won the 1936 Coppa Ciano and the Lucca GP and the 1937 the Naples, Genua and Lucca GPs. Re raced Maseratis until 1940 when he joined Alfa Corse for the Tripoli Grand Prix.
After having spent the war in the Italian air force, Regia Autonautica, he returned to Alfa Corse in 1946. He won the 1946 Milan GP and the 1947 Turin GPs. However he was an ill man suffering from a brain tumour and he died at an age of 41 in 1949.
