Trossi takes the 6 cylinder Maserati to another victory
The race was run on a new narrow and twisty track in Sempione Park. Newcomer Emilio Villoresi initially held the lead but was then passed on the fourth lap by the works Maseratis of Trossi and Tenni. Tenni went off track on lap 7, when trying to keep Trossi's pace, and he had to stop for repairs and eventually to retire. Trossi in the new 6 cylinder Maserati dominated the rest of the event. Emilio Villoresi finished second and Belmondo after a duel with Bianco finished third.
Even with the Monza autodrome nearby, Milano decided to hold a race event in the city itself with races in both the Grand Prix and voiturette class.
      For a location the Sempione Park in the middle of the city was selected. The start and finish of the race track was at the Piazza del Cannone in front of the Castello Sforzesco, the track continued along Viale Gadio, past the famous city aquarium (Aquario Civico) and circled the sports arena (Arena Civica). After a section along Viale Elvezia, the track went back into the park, circling the other side of the Arena. Then it took a right turn to the center of the park and then another right turn into Viale Francia (Viale Malta nowadays?) and followed it to the Piazza, making a hairpin turn in front of the Arco della Pace. Then the track continued in a long sweeping right turn through the park to another hairpin in front of Castello Sforzesco that took the circuit back to the pits and the start and finish straight.
      The circuit was narrow and twisty and the decision was made to restrict the participants to 12, the organizers deciding what drivers would take part.
      Timing equipment was of the highest class as electrical timing with a photoelectric cell was used, perhaps for the first time during an European race event.
Entries:
The British ERA drivers were preparing themselves for the Nuffield handicap race at Donington Park so there was an all-Italian entry for the voiturette race to be run before the Grand Prix. Apart from Sergio Carnevalli's Bugatti T39A all the cars were Maseratis. Favorite was Eifel winner Carlo Felice Trossi with the new 6 cylinder car that with its independent suspension fitted the track perfectly. The works team also entered Omobono Tenni in a 4CM while Gino Rovere's 1.5 litre car was not ready following a crash an week earlier and he had to race a 1.1 litre car instead. Local driver Aldo "Tino" Bianchi, entered by Luigi Castelbarco and 48 years old Giuseppe Gilera were to race 1.1 litre Maseratis as well.
      Baronessa Maria Antonietta Avanzo, Italian first and perhaps most famous female race driver of the era, who had started racing in 1920 was to race a Maserati 4CS.
      All the other cars taking part were Maserati 4CMs. The young newcomer Emilio Villoresi, junior brother of Luigi Villoresi, was going to race Luigi's car while Luigi entered a Fiat but then decided not to take part in the race. Enrico Platé was another driver entered by Luigi Castelbarco and Archimede Rosa was entered by Scuderia Maremmana. Vittorio Belmondo and Ettore Bianco in their private cars made up the rest of the entry list.
     
Race:
After a dark morning with some rain the weather turned sunny in the afternoon and tens of thousands of race enthusiast gathered at Parco Sempione. In front of military and civilian dignitaries the 12 cars were lined up in four rows like this:

At 3 p.m. the flag was dropped and young Emilio Villoresi made a good start took the lead followed by Trossi and Tenni while Rovere stalled on the grid and came away last. On the first three laps Villoresi held the lead but then Trossi found a way by and immediately thereafter Tenni passed as well for second position. For the next laps Tenni was following Trossi closely but on the seventh lap he overdid it, went off the track and had to make a 3 minute pit stop for a damaged wheel and new plugs. Tenni returned to the race but soon afterwards the driver was seen walking back to the pits after the gearbox on his Maserati had failed, probably because of the earlier accident.
      As had been feared the narrow track made passing very hard and even lapping the backmarkers proved to be a challenge. Luckily, apart from a few contacts with straw bales, there were no major incidents. Trossi was controlling the race leading Emilio Villoresi by 13 seconds after 10 laps. The major battle was instead for third position between Bianco and Belmondo. On the sixteenth lap Belmondo found a way by and started to pull away leaving Bianco behind fast. On the same lap Trossi made the fastest lap of the race with a time of 1m41.4s. At half distance the situation was:
1.Trossi (Maserati)34m33.4s
2.E. Villoresi (Maserati)35m08.6s
3.Belmondo (Maserati)35m14.2s
4.Bianco (Maserati)35m51.2s

After his bad start Rovene came through the field to finally catch and pass Gilera, who had led the 1100cc class until then. After 30 laps Trossi had opened up a minute lead and at the end of the race took the flag 78 seconds in front of Emilio Villoresi, who however had done an excellent job in his debut race at this level. Belmondo was the only other non lapped driver in third position with Bianco a lap behind finishing fourth and Rovene another lap behind being fifth overall and winner of the 1100cc class.

Nuvolari vs. Varzi
Varzi persuaded Auto Union to enter a single car in the Milan GP. There he faced the Ferrari team led by Nuvolari. Varzi had been over-optimistic about his chances. Varzi took an early lead but the Auto Union car was not at its best on the twisty 2.6 km circuit round the Sempione park and a bit after half distance Nuvolari closed in and took over the lead. After a long duel with Varzi, Nuvolari took the chequered flag nine seconds in front of his arch rival.
The voiturette race was followed by the main event to be run 60 laps. For the race the participants, just like the voiturette race, were restricted to 12. (For circuit details, see the voiturette race).
Entries:
This was "Alfa Romeo country" with the Portello factory located just 2 km from the track. Scuderia Ferrari entered a 12-cylinder car for Tazio Nuvolari and three 8-cylinder cars for Giuseppe Farina, Mario Tadini and Antonio Brivio. Scuderia Maremmana entered two Alfa Romeo P3s for Clemente Biondetti and Giacomo de Rham and a "Monza" for Sergio Banti. while Gianni Battaglia and Vittorio Belmondo entered their private Alfa Romeos.
      It could have been a Alfa Romeo parade. Luckily for the excitement of the race Achille Varzi persuaded Auto Union to enter a single car. The Maserati works team did not appear but Scuderia Torino entered two 6 cylinder Maseratis for Piero Dusio and Eugenio Siena.
Race:
With the Portello factory nearby many of the numerous spectators that gathered in the park surely had connections to Alfa Romeo. The race started at 5.30 p.m. The cars were lined up in the grid with Nuvolari on pole position in the center of row one:

(Note 3)

Nuvolari took the lead at the start followed by Varzi, Brivio, Farina, Tadini, Siena, Battalia and Dusio. De Rahm and Belmondo immediately retired. On the second laps Varzi took over the lead after doing a sub 1m38s lap. Already on the third lap Varzi started to pull away lowering the lap time with another second. On the fifth lap Farina found a way past Brivio to take third position and soon left his team mate far behind. Varzi increased his lead by over a second a lap. After ten lap the gap had increased to 12 seconds but then Nuvolari started to speed up and for the next ten laps the two Italians pushed each other to the cheers of the crowd, gaining a tenth of a second here or losing a tenth of a second there, but unable to get the upper hand over the opponent. After 20 laps, with one third of the race done, the distance between them still remained about 12 seconds.
      Nuvolari kept pushing his arch opponent. He did the 25th lap in 1m35.3s lowering the gap to 10 seconds. On the next lap the gap decreased by another two seconds and on the 27th lap Nuvolari gained 0.6 seconds. After 28 laps the gap was down to 5.6 seconds. Varzi gained back 0.8 seconds on lap 29 only to lose it again on lap 30. At half distance the situation was:
1.Varzi (Auto Union)48m21.2s
2.Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)48m26.8s
3.Farina (Alfa Romeo)49m35.8s
4.Brivio (Alfa Romeo)49m56s

On the next lap Nuvolari caught Varzi and on the 32nd and 33th laps they raced close to each other. Then on the 34th lap Nuvolari passed the Auto Union, setting in a new fastest lap with a time of 1m34.5s. One can only imagine the reaction of the crowd as the Alfa turned up in the lead. Nuvolari successfully defended his position during lap 35 and pulled away a bit on the next lap but Varzi pulled in the gap again on next lap. The two cars spent laps 38 and 39 nose to tail but then Nuvolari got a break as they lapped third positioned Farina, the Ferrari driver letting his team mate by but making it harder for Varzi. Nuvolari made the 40th lap in 1m34s. The time was equaled by Varzi on lap 43. After 45 laps the gap had grown to 7 seconds and it stayed within 10 seconds for the rest of the race. On the 57th lap Varzi put in the fastest lap of the race with a time of 1m33.4s but that did not hinder Nuvolari to take the flag 8.8s seconds in front of the Auto Union driver. Farina, Brivio and Tadini took the next three positions for Scuderia Ferrari but were clearly distanced.

      Varzi had been over-optimistic about his chances. The Auto Union car was clearly not at its best on Sempione park where it couldn't use its power advantage and where the Alfa could challenge it on more or less equal terms.

Ferrari supreme in South American race with a tragic end.
Several of the participants of the Rio de Janeiro GP a month earlier also took part in the Sao Paulo GP, including Europeans "Helle-Nice" and the Scuderia Ferrari drivers Pintacuda and Marinoni. Pintacuda totally dominated the event but Marinoni spun and stalled but was able to continue again after a controversial push from Pintacuda to finish second. On the last lap "Hellé-Nice" during a fight with de Teffe for third position lost control and had a horrible crash into the spectator area resulting in several fatalities.
The São Paulo Grand Prix was held five weeks after the successful 1936 Rio de Janeiro GP and several of the international entries decided to take part in both races.
Entries:
Marinoni and Pintacuda raced Ferrari entered Alfa Romeo 2.9 litre sportscars and spare parts had arrived from Italy to cure the differential trouble that had occured at Rio. "Mlle. Hellé-Nice" would again race her own blue Alfa Romeo "Monza". A few Argentinans, Victório Rosa (Hispano-Suiza), Augusto Mac Carthy (Chrysler) and Victório Coppoli (Bugatti), took part in the race as they had done in Rio.
      The Brazil entries included Manuel de Teffé, Arthur Nascimento Júnior, Chico Landi and Domingos Lopes. The rest of the field consisted of local drivers mostly in old Bugattis and American specials.
      Nascimento Júnior was assigned #32 but as it was the number used by Irineu Corrêa in his fatal accident 1935 he used #42 instead. He however kept his drawn position on the grid.
      Pintacuda got race number #12 but as he was the clear favorite with a superior car he prefered for sportmanship reasons to take #38 next to his team mate at the back of the grid instead.
      Valentim Passadori obviously tested car #18 but was replaced by Luiz Mastrogiacomo on race day.

People turned up in masses for the until then largest automobile race in São Paulo. The start, announced for 9 o'clock, had to be delayed as the governor had difficulties to arrive at the place, due to traffic jams. When the flag finally fell, Pintacuda worked himself up the field to take the lead on the third lap followed by Marinoni. However, the later spun on the fourth lap but was able to rejoin and catch Pintacuda. They were followed by Hellé-Nice, Rio winner Vittorio Coppoli, Manoel of Teffé, Chico Landi and Benedito Lopes. Then Marinoni spun again, stalling his engine and losing 7 minutes before Pintacuda arrived and gave him a gentle push start with his own car. Eight laps later Marinoni was back up in second position. "Hellé-Nice" had to make a pit stop on lap 52 and dropped to fourth. She then catched de Teffe by five seconds per lap and caught the third positioned Alfa during the last lap. De Teffe went wide in the last corner and the two Alfa Romeo "Monza" cars came onto the main straight side by side.
      No one seems to be sure what happend next. Some say an overexcited de Teffe fan pushed a straw bale out on the track in front of "Hellé-Nice", some say a policeman walked out on the track trying to control the crowd, some say "Hellé-Nice" made a simple mistake, but anyway at a speed of 160 km/h she hit something and lost control, the Alfa Romeo somersaulted twice and crashed into the main stand resulting in four (six?) dead and thirty-four injured. The driver herself flew through the air and fell straight upon a soldier, who absorbed the full impact. "Hellé-Nice" survived even if she had to spend over two months at hospital with a fractured skull while the poor soldier was less fortunate, succumbing to his injuries. A deeply shocked Hellé-Nice gave up GP racing.
      Pintacuda's push start of Marinoni during the race was not appreciated by the other competitors. After some discussions it was finally decided that Marinoni would keep his second place but that part of his prize money was going to a fund for the crash victims.

Prince Bira in "Remus" dominates as the works ERAs struck trouble
The race was run in two heats with the aggregate times deciding the total winner. Prince Bira won the first heat while the works ERA of Howe and Lehoux got technical troubles. In the second heat the third works ERA of Fairfield had to retire as well and Bira won easly from Veyron's Bugatti and Rüesch's Maserati.
Just as in 1935 the race was run in two heats with the aggregate times deciding the total winner.
Entries:
Both Seaman and Mays were unable to race, the former still without a car after the Picardie crash as the repairs took longer than expected and the latter was busy with business affairs. The Works ERA's were driven by Marcel Lehoux (R3B with Zoller supercharger), Earl Howe (R8B) and Pat Fairfield (R4A). Prince Bira was to use his new R5B "Remus" for the first time outside Great Britain.
      Hans Rüesch entered a rebodied Maserati 4CS. Pierre Veyron had a one-off apperence with his old Bugatti T51A. Apart from the Maserati 6CM entered by Olympic medalist Frederick McEvoy there was another 6 cylinder Maserati to be raced by Lazlo Hartmann for the works team. Private Maserati 4CMs to be raced by Henri Durand and Ettore Bianco, and Austrian Walter von Wustrow's 4 cylinder Bugatti completed the field.

Lehoux took the lead on heat one followed by Bira and Earl Howe. Howe had to retire with a broken gearbox and McEvoy Maserati 6CM was destroyed when it started to burn after rolling over. Luckly McEvoy was thrown out of the car and escaped unhurt. Bira followed Lehoux without difficulty and then on the 14th lap passed to take the lead. The duel continued, both drivers doing equal fastest lap of the race on lap 18 but near the end of the race the Zoller supercharger got seized on Lehoux's ERA and he fell back half a minute behind Bira who took the victory. Fairfield finished third making it a triple win for the ERA cars.

Hartmann's Maserati had a cracked piston and he was a non starter for the second heat. The existing information is somewhat vague but it seems Lehoux' car with its failed supercharger was pushed to the starting line, mostly to keep the spectators satisfied, and that it then stalled at the start. So only six cars took car in the second heart. Bianco held the lead for a moment but before the end of the first lap Bira had taken control over the race. The order was Bira, Tongue, Bianco and Fairfield. Then Fairfield's works car suffered a similar gearbox problem as had Howe's car in heat one. Bianco had to retire when the car caught fire and Tonge got a puncture too far away from the pits to be able to return to it. That left Bira in front of Veyron's Bugatti and Rüesch's red-white Maserati and that was the way they finished, both in the heat and in the aggregate results.

In retrospect:
Albi was to be the last voiturette appearence for two famous French drivers. Pierre Veyron was to concentrate on sports cars, going on to win the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939 and for French/Algerian Marcel Lehoux the Deauville GP a week after Albi would turn fatal.

Star 13 July 1936: Bernd Rosemeyer got married to Elly Beinhorn. They deliberately choose 13th as their wedding day as both regarded 13 as their lucky number.
Star July 1936: Both the Le Mans 24h race and the Belgian Grand Prix were cancelled due to strikes.

A fatal race
Deauville, one of the most in fashionable holiday resorts in France, is located in Basse-Normandie, between Le Havre and Caen. Deauville was one of several towns in the 1930s that tried to follow up on the success of the Monaco Grand Prix so the decision was taken to organize a race event for the resort and a race course was planned on the promenade roads between the houses and the beach. On the map the course doesn't look worse than some of the other twisty 1930s street courses, but many drivers however did not like this course thinking it to be narrow, unsafe and with problematic corners making it unsuited for racing.
Entries:
With the Second Italo-Ethiopian War over and the League of Nations' sanctions from 18 November 1935 lifted on 15 July the Italian goverment gave Scuderia Ferrari permisson to race in France again and the team send 8 cylinder Alfa Romeos to be raced by Giuseppe Farina and René Dreyfus. Ferrari had kept Dreyfus as a test driver and now gladly took him back as full member of the team. Private Alfa Romeo P3s were entered by British drivers Austin Dobson and Charles Martin, Spanish nobleman de Villapadierna and French Raymond Sommer.
      The Bugatti works team entered T59s for Robert Benoist and Jean-Pierre Wimille and Philippe Etancelin entered his own T51. Ex-Salmson driver Albert "Raymond" Chambost was to race his ex-Sommer Maserati 8CM (3006, rebuilt into a two-seater) while Frederick McEvoy was a non starter after his Maserati 6CM had burned at Albi. The ERA works team sent a single car (R3B) with the engine size increased to 2 litres for Marcel Lehoux.

It turned out to be a tragic race. After only seven laps Chambost crashed his Maserati 8CM, received a fractured skull, and died a few days later. At half distance the race Farina in the Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo led from Wimille's Bugatti and Lehoux's works ERA. The Farina did a pit stop falling to third. When Farina then tried to pass Lehoux for second the cars collided at Courbe des Bains, the Italian escaped with minor injuries but the ERA overturned and caught fire. Lehoux was thrown out, recieved a fractured skull, and died at hospital. At the end there were only three finishers, Wimille taking home his Bugatti to a joyless victory. The Deauville track was never used again.

Auto Union dominates on Nürburgring
Von Brauchitsch lead on the first lap but was then passed by Rosemeyer and Lang. Caracciola was a early retirement. When Rosemeyer on a two stop strategy made his first stop Lang took over the lead but he had broken a finger during a gear change and had to stop for medical attention, Caracciola taking over the car. Later when von Brauchitsch gave up Lang volunteered to race on with that car. Mercedes was in trouble. Chiron survived a high speed crash with minor injuries and Caracciola had to retire for a second time. When Nuvolari retired his Alfa Romeo no one could hinder a Auto Union triumph with Rosmeyer winning easily from Stuck with Brivio finishing third for Alfa Romeo.
Entries:
Auto Union entered four cars for Hans Stuck, Bernd Rosemeyer, Achille Varzi and Ernst von Delius. But Achille Varzi never turned turn up at Nürburgring, so Auto Union let Rudolf Hasse make his GP debut instead. This started off several rumours of what was wrong with Varzi.
      The Mercedes-Benz team had done much work trying to prepare for their home Grand Prix and entered a full five car team, Lang having his first race with the pukka 1936 type car. During the season it was realized that the blocks in the new ME25 engine were too weak. New cylinders and blocks were therefore made for the home event. A Tripoli Mercedes had moved from 240mm superchargers after trouble with the 255mm superchargers. Now, several of the engines were anew equipped with the larger superchargers.
      British driver Seaman raced the Scuderia Torino V8RI, Trossi driving an 2.5 litre 4 cylinder car instead.
Practice:
Practice times: Caracciola 10m03s, von Brauchitsch 10m05s, Rosemeyer 10m07s, Lang 10m09s.
Race:
For once the weather in the Eifel mountains was perfect and a record number of about 350,000 spectators turned up for the German GP expecting to see a new fight between Nuvolari, Rosemeyer and Caracciola. For the race Rosemeyer and the Ferrari team selected a two-stop strategy, most of the other went for a one-stop strategy.

At 11 AM the lights turned to green and off they went, von Brauchitsch taking the lead. Rosemeyer came up from third row to take second place and Lang, who had decided to try to follow Rosemeyer, took the third place. Behind them came Caracciola, Stuck, Nuvolari, Fagioli, Chiron, Dreyfus, Brivio, Hasse, von Delius, Trossi, Zanelli, Seaman and Severi. Von Brauchitsch made the first lap in 10m24s.
      On lap two Rosemeyer took the lead and Lang followed up to second place. Zanelli retired his Maserati because of fuel feed problems. Lang was in trouble as he had broken a finger on the first lap while changing down a gear at Brünnchen. Von Brauchitsch was also in trouble with brake failure coming into the pits slowly for a 8 minute pitstop for repairs. The order after two laps was:
1.Rosemeyer (Auto Union)20m31.1s
2.Lang (Mercedes-Benz)20m40.2s
3.Caracciola (Mercedes-Benz)20m48.4s
4.Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)21m08.1s

10.Dreyfus (Alfa Romeo)21m45.1s
11.Hasse (Auto Union)21m49.1s
12.Trossi (Maserati)22m43.4s

Stuck passed Nuvolari at the Südkehre and the order was: Rosemeyer, who by making the first ever sub 10 minutes lap on the Nürburgring had opened up a 20 seconds gap, Lang, Caracciola and Stuck. Severi stopped to change plugs. Caracciola had to retire on the next lap continuing the misfortunes of the Mercedes team.
      On lap 7 Rosemeyer came in for a 42 second stop for tyres and tanking followed by Nuvolari, Trossi, Brivio and von Delius.
      Lang, who had been leading in a GP for the first time, gave over his car to Caracciola, the spectators loudly showing their displeasure with boos and hisses until the loudspeakers explained that Lang needed medical attention.
      Half race gone the rest of the drivers went for their pit stop. Von Brauchitsch gave up and Lang, with a splint on the finger, volunteered to race on with that car. At half distance with 11 laps done Rosemeyer, who still was driving flat out, had an over two minute lead over Stuck with Nuvolari third.

10.Severi (Alfa Romeo)2h07m24.1s

Severi came in for tanking and Dreyfus took over the car. Stuck, Hasse, Fagioli and Chiron came in for tyre changes and the new race order became like this:
1.Rosemeyer (Auto Union)2h03m13.4s
2.Nuvolari (Alfa Romeo)2h05m40.4s
3.Caracciola (Mercedes-Benz)2h06m02.2s
4.Stuck (Auto Union)2h06m33.0s
5.Chiron (Mercedes-Benz)2h07m27.0s

11.Trossi (Maserati)2h16m39.4s
12.Dreyfus (Alfa Romeo)2h18m17.4s

At lap 13 Chiron had a high speed crash at Antoniusbuche when the car spun to the left and overturned. The driver was sent to hospital with wounds on his head and shoulders. Fortunately he was not seriously wounded but it was his last race for Mercedes-Benz.
      On lap 14 both Rosemeyer and Caracciola made their second stops and Nuvolari retired from his second place with plug trouble. Seaman, who had retired with brake problems, took over Trossi's car. Brivio made his second stop and von Delius came in with hands full of blisters but was forced to continue as there were no reserve drivers.
      Caracciola retired with Lang's car. When Fagioli was lapped by Rosemeyer the Italian entered the pit to tell Neubauer exactly what he thought about the short wheelbase Mercedes. Neubauer answered by ordering Fagioli out of the car and Caracciola took over.
      Rosemeyer could take it easy on the last laps, greeting the spectators, to take the flag 4 minutes in front of team mate Stuck. Brivio took his Alfa to a fine third place followed by Hasse making a strong Grand Prix debut and Caracciola as best Mercedes driver. Then came two drivers in pain, von Delius with bleeding hands and Lang, who had regretted that he had returned to the race. The result was no surprise to Rosemeyer, after all the victory came 13 days after the wedding, 13 being his favourite number!
