Special trophy at the "Golden helmet" awards for Audi works driver Emanuele Pirro

Le Mans 2002
Emanuele Pirro

Audi works driver Emanuele Pirro has been awarded the “casco d´oro speciale” during a big television gala at Bologna on Saturday. “Casco d’oro” is an annual award introduced in 1966 by specialist magazine “Autosprint”, Italy’s leading motorsport magazine. The organisers explained that Pirro and Audi had been unbeatable at Le Mans, and the Audi works driver has “already become a legend” thanks to his hat-trick in the 24 Hour race. For his second places in the Le Mans 24 Hour race and the American Le Mans Series (ALMS), Pirro´s team-mate Rinaldo Capello was awarded the special trophy “Italia che vince”, reserved for Italian race drivers who have been successful in international motorsport series.
