Ermanno Cuoghi


In his book "Racing In The Rain", John Horsman described Ermanno Coughi as an "enthusiastic helper who attached himself to our team. ...I could not get rid of him when the testing was over." John goes on to say Coughi was a "leftover" from Shelby who came to England driving their transporter, having been promised a job at FAV. He was used as a "helper" but his skills were recognized and Ermanno quickly rose to be Chief Mechanic. In many conversations with John, he often mentioned Ermanno and how much he contributed to the success of their team.
