The first time I saw him it was as 3rd driver from the SCUDERIA NUVOLARI. After a few research, I found he was also relief driver for Alfa Romeo in 1924 and test driver for FIAT but otherwise nothing

Not only a test driver for Fiat - he raced one in the 1924 French Grand Prix
Raced Bugattis 1927/28, Maseratis 1928/32, latterly concentrating on sportscar races and hillclimbs

Pastore was presented in L'√Čtoile Belge, 18 May 1924 (Belgian newspaper) as the Director of the test track over the roof of the Fiat factory at Torino.

I've data about Cesare Pastore from 1924 to 1931.

In 1924 he took part in the Targa Florio and the European and ACF GP, driving a Fiat.

More surprising, in the Italian GP at Monza, where Fiat was not entered, he replaced Campari in the Alfa Romeo P2 to finish 3rd.

Later, he drove
1927: Bugatti and Fiat
1928: Bugatti and Maserati
1929: Maserati
1930: Maserati
1931: Maserati

Well, about the Italian GP, It seems that "Pastore replacing Campari in the P2" is a Sheldon error. The relieving driver was instead Bruno Presenti ! The results published just after the race confirm the fact.

Pastore raced several times in parts of Croatia that were occupied by Italy between two world wars. He certainly drove a Maserati in Matulji-Ucka hillclimb in 1929 and 1930, winning sport category in later year (sadly, reports of both races I have are very confusing...). Also, he drove a Fiat 525 SS in Padova-Trento-Rijeka (Fiume) race in 1930 where he was apparently disqualified, like his temmates Nazzaro and Salamano, although I don't know why.

Was that Fiume event a race or a rally?
I'm sure if there was a race over that route I would have heard of it, especially with Nazzaro and Salamano among the competitors
Or is the year wrong?

I'm sure I have some data about that hillclimb events, but it used the Italian name. I think it was linked with the Italian name of Opatija, which was Abbazia (without checking).

This is my 999th post... encore 1 !!!

I ve just finished the Nuvolari book, from Franco Zagari, it seems that Cesare Pastore was also a financial ? who helped T. Nuvolari to created the Scuderia T Nuvolari, and helped him to buy 4
Bugatti ?
