Some googling gave only minor info on the sports car race at Caserta 21 June 1959:
2nd Gaetano Starabba, Porsche
7th Nino Vaccarella, Maserati 200SI
Since I'm fascinated by these races on common roads and streets where you still actually can drive on the roads where the races were held, I wonder if someone has some more info on this race i.e. the race winner. No purpose built racetrack can offer the same thrill except maybe the Nürburgring.

Thank you Alessandro Silva. I see it took you only 11 minutes to answer my question. I wish questions one have could answered as fast as that!

OOps. Gaetano of course.
I was thinking to a former colleague called Francesco!
