1932 was a triumphal year: Nuvolari in the Alfa Romeo 8C2300 won the Monaco GP at Monte Carlo

By this time Nuvolari’s star (the «Flying Mantuan», as he was called) blazed in the racing world. Out of 16 races, Tazio won 7: the Gran Prix of Monaco, the Targa Florio, the Italian Grand Prix, the French Grand prix, the Circuito di Avellino, the Coppa Ciano and the Coppa Acerbo.
There were also 5 first in class and 9 fastest laps. The only race he did not managed to finish was the Mille Miglia:
coming out Florence, his car run out of the road. Nuvolari’s triumphal year was made complete by two other titles of great prestige: the Italian driver’s championship and the International
Championship, won on the basis of the three victories in the Grand Prix races of Italy, France, Germany.
