After retirement, Renato became President of the Automobile Club in Pescara and helped re-launch the Svolte di Popoli annual festival. He died in 2002, after suffering kidney problems. Pirocchi began his career racing sportscars in 1954 and one year later, became the Italian National Champion in the discipline. But it was in Formula Junior in his homeland that he became most entwined with, beginning in the series in its inaugral year in 1959 and then winning the title the following season. This series was also where he returned to after his brief attempt at Grand Prix racing.
