Lives near Pescara, where he runs, with his family, an agricultural business and vineyard. Francesco's role is largely now ceremonial or as an adviser as his nephew runs the business. Cerulli Irelli was predominantly a sportscar racer, racing for well over a decade, often in his own AMS. His finest sportscar moment came in 1976, when he won the Vallelunga Six Hour race, but he also took a number of class wins. Promising in Italian Formula 3 in the early 1970's, Francesco continued racing until the mid 1980's, competing in the Renault 5 Cup in 1985. A book about his life came out in 2022.
