RACER – Alfie Costanzo

By Drivers, Ferrari No Comments

The story of the racing life of the Australian Driving Champion Alfredo Costanzo.

The movie RACER is a great tribute to the Australian Driving Champion Alfredo Costanzo. Produced by independent film production company Weightless. The project delivered under the watchful eye of film maker Will Gaffney. The inspiration for this project was none other than Alf’s Costanzo’s son Alf Jnr.

Will Gaffney was thrilled to be invited to bring this project to life;

“Production on the documentary “Racer” about the life and career of 4-time Australian Gold Star Drivers Champion Alfie Costanzo was great. This project has been an incredible experience to being invited into the Costanzo family and drawing out such an amazing story from so many wonderful people.”

Over 500 people gathered at the Westfield Village Cinemas in Doncaster for one of the centres biggest ever private screenings. Family, Friends and associates enjoyed this great documentary of the trials and tribulations of Alfredo Costanzo and his quest to be the best driver in Australia.

The Targa Florio Australian Tribute has been privileged to have Alf and Carlo Travaglini participate in the inaugural 2017 event. They won the Ferrari Tributo category driving a beautiful 2017 Ferrari California and have continued to be an integral part of the event in 2018.

Congratulations to the RACER, Alfie Costanzo.
