AUTO SERVICE GIORGIO MAFFI, 1960s
ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA
Giorgio Maffi started working at the age of 14 to sustain his family, joining the only VW company in Ethiopia. He decided later on to open his own car workshop business in 1968.
He consequently got involved in many races and co-founded the Ethiopian Motorsport Federation to serve as its race director. Motor racing became extremely popular in Ethiopia, and participants were pushed to creative heights to overcome the limited resources that were available to them in terms of racing parts and equipment.
