We can't do much to help you without at least a chassis number. Here's the list of Osella chassis numbers on the WSRP site:

and here's the race record for the PA7 on the Racing Sports Cars site:

It would seem that no PA7 ever raced at Le Mans.

Chassis 088 was used by Pietro Laureati to finish 6th in the Macerata hillclimb in July 1979.

Perhaps one of our Italian members can tell us a little more about Pietro Laureati. He seems to have had an interesting selection of cars over the years. :wave:

Piero Laureati was from the Marche region, center Italy, graduate engineer and keen racer drove interesting cars, mainly in hillclimb. Amongst them an Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, various Abarth and, even, an exotic, Abarth engined, Chevron B19. Died recently, at 89 http://www.rivieraog...a-di-soggiorno/
