    Mark Rotharmel from Toronto, Canada.. Race is Milan, 1984. Second Effort provided Barry Woods, Gene Thibodaux and myself with three similar Molinari's for the final two races of that season - the German and Italian Grand Prix's. Michael Werner replaced Thibodeaux at Milan.

    Renato won the 1984 F1 title but following the trophy presentation at Milan, thieves made off with his Porsche... That could have been the cause of his headache.

    Thanks for your info Watermark 11.

    Renato took me for a spin in his white Porsche 911 Turbo up in the Como mountains.
    Here is a picture of one of Renatos boats 1984. The -84 engine cowling was rounded in the rear. Molinari made his own and OMC made one to, but Renatos was nicer.
    The second picture is from 1983..You can see the square rear of the Evinrude cowling.
