Giulio Cabianca Cause of Death
Cabianca died in an unusual accident at Italy’s Modena Autodrome test track. The Modena Autodrome was located along the Via Emilia, which runs through the city of Modena. Cabianca was testing a Cooper-Ferrari F1 car owned by Scuderia Castellotti when he experienced what appeared to be a jammed throttle. Unable to stop, his Cooper turned off track, hit a spectator, and then drove through the Autodrome gate, which was open due to men working near the track. The car crossed the Via Emilia and crashed with a workshop wall. Cabianca’s Cooper was hit by a cab while crossing the street. Cabianca, as well as the three passengers in the taxi, were killed.
