Over the years I have seen very little-to-nothing about Piero Dusio's entry into the 1952 Italian GP. The only time a Cisitalia was entered for a Grand Prix as far as I am aware.
"On the first day the new 2-litre Cisitalia eliminated itself quite unintentionally by scattering a rod and most of its crankcase over the track; this was an o.h.v. four-cylinder, with four Del Orto motor-cycle carburetters, mounted in a typical Cisitalia multi-tube chassis with independent suspension all round, transverse leaf spring and wishbones at the front and a combination of radius tubes and wishbones at the rear, with he outer universal joint of each half axle mounted in the wheel hub."
There are also a few photos on Revs, albeit of the engine compartment only for some reason and not the whole car. But at least this proves it was there?:
This photo is from the Roma GP, but I presume it is the same chassis?
Is there anything else out there?
