Fornasari was officially founded in 1999 by Giuseppe Fornasari, along with a group consisting of several of his friends and supporters. Fornasari had been active in motorsports since the early 1990s, having entered the world of racing with a Chevrolet Corvette purchased in America.

The world of racing and Gran Turismo is always the backdrop to the life of the promoter of this initiative, thanks to his father, Gigi, Alpha skilled pilot Maserati and fifties, who gave his son a passion for not only cars but also a wealth of technical knowledge and human resources. Names that have characterized the history of Italian motor sport names are often family, and the world of enthusiasts, collectors and technicians is a small group, consisting of situations that run and are repeated, different but always the same.
