About the Author:

Mirco de Cet was born in a small village in the Dolomite Mountains north of Venice, Italy. His interest in vehicles began at an early age, when he saw people going about their business on small cylinder machines known as 'motorino'. In the 1950s Mirco moved to England, where he worked in a well-respected automobile franchise. At this point his love of both cars and motorcycles really took off, and he was invited to work on a car magazine. He has a passion for anything mechanical.
