The Italian automobile club ACI Sport Italia honored the long-standing Audi factory driver Dindo Capello at a gala event this weekend. The three-time Le Mans winner and current Audi dealer was recognized for his successful career in motorsport at the “Night of the Champions” held in Taormina, Sicily. During the ceremony, Capello was surprised by the event’s hosts with a collage of video clips showing his best scenes. The prominent guests in attendance also included Nino Vaccarella. The Italian race driver legend celebrated major successes in motorsport in the 1960s and ‘70s. In addition to a Le Mans victory (1964), the Sicilian clinched three victories at the Targa Florio, an endurance race on public mountain roads on his native island.
