Past Gas # 197: The Eerie Parallel Deaths of Ferrari’s Father-Son Superstars

By Donut Media

By the time he had reached the starting line at the inaugural Belgian Grand Prix in 1925, Antonio Ascari was a living legend. He was to “slow down” by race officials at Monza, and even won the first Belgium Grand Prix by a whopping 22 minutes. But how did Antonio Ascari come to be one of the most respected drivers of his era? How did his son Alberto not only live up to his father’s legacy, but become a legend in his own right? And how would their nearly symmetrical lives, both in glory and in tragedy, leave a lasting impact on motorsport?
