    Has anybody more infos about this driver? I assume he was the typical amateur racer of that period.
    Does anybody know more about his background?

    Well, I do not have a photo of him.
    He co-drove in the 166MM #0266MM in the Mille Miglia 1954. Race-no. was 459.
    But it seems that he also drove himself in other Italian races with Ferrari and Maserati.
    Ideas?

    Respectfully disagree.
    0266 M (not MM!) was sold 20 March 1953 to Phil Hill in CA/USA.

    Mirko Landini of Bologna did not race that car in the 1 May 1954 Mille Miglia.
    He was, however, a co-driver with Paolo Pineschi ("Pegaso") in a 500 Mondial Spider Pinin Farina, race #459, in the May 1954 Mille Miglia. See pic below.

    Marcel, thanks. OK, it was not #0266M then.
    But I was right to have him as a co-driver in the 1954 MM. I never stated that he actually drove the car himself...
