Still racing as Beppe is now a historic racer, in both circuit racing and rallies. Now also works in television and helps his son's racing career. Gabbiani had undoubted pace, and was very impressive in European Formula 3, but neither of his attempts at Formula 1 - the first arguably came too early for him - really met the promise he showed in F3 or F2, in which he was usually competitive. Beppe has also written a book about his life. After his single-seater career finished, Gabbiani went onto compete in sportscars and saloon car racing for some considerable time.
