The proprietor Gianni Sala started following racing cars while working for a team in the rally championship. Afterwards, he moved on to Lamborghini Engineering and particularly into the Modena Team, headed by Mr. Mauro Forghieri (Eng.), at the time of their participation in the Formula 1 World Championship with the “Lambo.” After this experience (lasting just the two year. Immediately afterwards, he moved on to “Team Motor,” which was already taking part in the Ferrari Challenge, directly following Beppe Schenetti’s F.355 that, in 1999, ended the championship in second place.

His competition experience, twenty-five years by now, has also passed through direct collaboration with the Manager of the Stanguellini racing department, where he obviously learnt many of the “tricks” of the trade. For about 8 years now, Gianni Sala has been working on his own, opening his first workshop at Carpi and for three years (2000/2001/2002) following the Daytona Team in the Ferrari Challenge, to then move to his current headquarters at Rubiera (Reggio Emilia), a stone’s throw from the province of Modena.

[Pianeta Modena]MODENA MOTORI - ITALY - Very specialists for italian mechanical parts

Where does the culture for Italian engines derive from, for which Modena Motori is by now acknowledged all over the world for over 10 years?
Simple: the two current partners and owners, Luca Amadei, with over 20 years’ experience in the mechanical engineering sector, and Andrea Bernardi, at Modena Motori almost since its very beginning (10 years ago), besides being experts in the sector, they are first and foremost two great fans of Ferrari, Maserati and all our finest Italian motorcars in general.

Enthusiasts of fine mechanics and absorbed in this world, practically forever (they are both still rather young), it is not by chance that they collaborate actively above all with “Ferrari Classiche”: the special department that Ferrari himself wanted, geared to restoring and certifying all the historical cars of the Prancing Horse and by now fully working at Maranello (inside the very company of the Cavallino Rampante) for more than two years.
Their specialization? Obviously the classic Ferrari and Maserati mechanics, with particular experience and predilection for overhauling and restoring all the mechanical parts in general: engines, gearboxes, differentials, suspensions, etc.

Taking the name of its two founders, the Lunelli & Tarabusi machine shop opened in Modena in the 1930s.
It was one of the very first auto repair shops in Modena and, at first, specialized solely in engine service. But, virtually unique among the repair shops at that time, Lunelli & Tarabusi already had a range of specialized equipment and systems and, immediately after the war, began to handle conversions and, above all, sports car engines for OSCA, AlfaRomeo, Maserati and Ferrari.
Its 1986 transformation into “Nuova Lunelli” with a number of partner-owners and employees did not change shop business all that much because of its proven international reputation and, above all, because it continued to maintain in operation some of the equipment from its early years.
Alessandro Pollastri, who in 1986 became the director of the new company, not only saw to it that the Lunelli & Tarabusi tradition was maintained, largely thanks to the over-thirty-year experience of its partners, Bergonzini Paolo, Meschiari Daniele, Vaccari Omer e Tonelli Ivano, who had been part of the former shop for nearly two decades, but also a number of specialized pieces of equipment, such as the planetary grinder. This piece of equipment had been among the first in the 1930s shop and is still used to this day because it is absolutely irreplaceable for certain work on period engines.
