A motorcade of 70: 18 drivers, 3 or 4 Enduro and trial motorbikes, a Fiat 131, hundreds of scrapped cars, a wooden ramp almost 30 m wide and over 100 m long, 1,500,000 spectators in 1978. This is the business Card of "Stunt Cars", the travelling company of acrobats of 2 and 4-wheel vehicles owned and operated by the TOGNI brothers, HOLER and DIVIER. This is a family that was born into and grew up with the circus and inherited from the circus a taste for shows based on risk and ability. Acrobatics with cars began around the '20's in America as a kind of rodeo with cars. It was a country festival where the people applauded the men as they tamed the "mechanical" horse. The first shows in Europe were during the '60's by the "Canadian Helldrivers", a team of car acrobats coming from a number of countries. With success, though, the group split up when the contract terminated. At this point, there were two "schools": the German, which kept the name "Helldrivers" and the other, French, which changed the name to "Cascadeurs". In 1971, HOLER and DIVIER TOGNI, noting the success achieved by the "Canadian Helldrivers", decided to bring the show to Italy. Due to differences with the America impresario, this was not possible and so the brothers decided to become stuntmen themselves. For HOLER, an acrobat in the Darix Togni Circus, it was not difficult to learn the tricks of the trade as plied by the American, French and German aces. DIVIER preferred to handle the organisation end of the shows. The influence of the circus was immediately visible in the Stunt Car shows and not just due to the introduction of clowns to reduce the tension and cover the "gaps" between one number and the next. The main difference was in the Tognis ability of create a show-i.e., to amalgamate and organise the individual numbers to create two hours of continual suspence. The Stunt Car motorcade preserves this dual image: motor homes, women and children from the circus, coveralls, helmets, Rally and Formula 1 car tyre and rim equipment. I went behind the scenes of a Stunt Car show. As I followed the cars being prepared, I tried to understood the secrets. HOLER Togni was not anxious to reveal them because he is afraid that some youthful, wild driver will put them in practice and try to drive on two wheels or do a spin in reverse. These are dangerous even for an expert stuntman and are absolutely inadvisable for ordinary drivers. My notes on stunt cars are, therefore, intended merely to satisfy the curiosity of the spectators on how it is technically possible to do certai numbers in a show.
