Giuseppe "Nino" Pilia (born 29th May, 1955 in San Remo, Liguria) is an Italian former racing driver and Seborgan nationalist best known to motorsports fans for his performances in the 1978 Dywa Grand Prix Series, in which he made himself available as an injury replacement for Kelby Rogerson despite no organised racing experience outside the Italian Formula Ford Championship. After showing some promise in the rounds at Imola and Rouen, Pilia moved over to the Sammarinese squad in place of the departing Silvio Bachot, and was rewarded with a podium at the Mugello Circuit. He then followed it up with an impressive win on the streets of Pau to briefly lead the Championship before eventually falling back to fourth.
