The first true Bugatti car, Type 13, was in production in 1910 – 1922. The type 13 road cars were also the base for several modifications into racing vehicles corresponding to the “Voiturette” class. Type 22 was one of the modifications made in 1913. After World War I Bugatti Type 22 cars were regular entrants in voiturette racing. In 1921 Bugatti 22 took first 4 places at voiturette Grand Prix held in Brescia as a part of Brescia motorsport meeting culminating in Italian Grand Prix. That’s why the car was nicknamed “Brescia”. One of the Brescia races called Circuito di Brescia was run for the voiturettes. It was won by Italian Franz Conelli behind the wheel of Bugatti 22 #3.
