In Formula1

There can be little doubt it was a smart move from the F1 organization and the F1 chiefs to set up a live show in the very heart of Britain’s capital just hours before the British Grand Prix. It’s not everyday that fans, petrolheads and racing enthusiasts get to see the world’s best single-seaters right before their very eyes. Even with today’s hight quality TV coverage standards, it’s tough not to get goosebumps when you hear these engines roar in the flesh, or catch a glimpse of a Ferrari zooming by.

Riccardo Tafà
Riccardo was born in Giulianova, graduated in law at the University of Bologna and decided to do something else. After a stint at ISFORP (public relations training institute) in Milan, he moved to England. He began his career in London in PR, first at MSP Communication and then at Counsel Limited. Then, following his unhealthy passion for sport, he moved to Jean Paul Libert's SDC and started working in two and four-wheelers, this was in 1991/1992. A brief move to Monaco followed, where he worked alongside the owner of Pro COM, a sports marketing agency founded by Nelson Piquet. He returned to Italy and started working in the first person as RTR, first a consulting firm and then a sports marketing company. 
Back in 2001 RTR won the ESCA award for the best sports MKTG project in Italy in the year 2000. Among other things, RTR obtained the highest score among all categories and represented Italy in the ESCA European Contest. From that moment on, RTR will no longer participate in other national or international awards. Over the years he takes some satisfaction and swallows a lot of toads. But he is still here, writing in a disenchanted and simple manner, with the aim of giving practical (unsolicited) advice and food for thought.
