Hi,
Does anyone know about this magazine, i believe it covered F3000 very well and had plenty of images of F3000 I believe, can anyone comfirm that.

Also does anyone know where I could buy some, I've looked on Ebay but couldn't find any.

Thanks again,
Arron :)

It's gone for many years.

It was founded by Marcello Sabbatini (the founder of Autosprint) in 1981. Then, after several changes of ownership, was shut down due to economic (2 motorsport magazines are too many in Italy).

It's very difficult to find old copies. I've found some at the flea market that takes place every September in Imola.

Thanks for that.

Do you know if the coverage of the early F3000 season's 85/86 was any good.

Rombo was even available in Holland at a certain point. It was as a twin brother to Autosprint. Possibly with more emphasis on sensation headlines and stories. Many pictures though.
Happy hunting!

Rombo is extremely rare, I wanted to buy copies of Rombo that covered the Birmingham Superprix races.

In the last three years, I only found the 1988 edition. Just keep looking and something will pop up for sure,

I bought them all at the time and I still have them all here in my archives but cut out all pictures of Reutemann and Gilles Villeneuve.
Can I help you with some articles about certain races?
