Ludovico Scarfiotti was a talented mid 20th century Formula 1 and sports car driver from Lodi, Italy. He ran Le Mans, Sebring, the Grand Prix circuit and was an excellent hill climber in Europe. Unfortunately his early demise occurred while he was participating in the European hill climbing championship near Berchtesgaden, Germany. He also raced NASCAR including the Rockingham 500 race of 1963.
