Al momento della nascita avvenuta il 28 settembre 1898 alle 2,15 della notte i genitori, Maria Laudomia Ristei ed il padre Remo simpatizzante della propaganda di sinistra fatta dall’esule russo Michail Bakunin, lo registrano all’anagrafe del Comune di Terni con il nome di Baconino, seguito da due più normali Francesco e Domenico. Il bimbo cresce, diventa ragazzo, segue i studi scolastici che però al termine dell’obbligo abbandona per portare un aiuto alle esigenze della famiglia. E’ con questa idea che Borzacchini, il cui nome gli amici hanno modificato in un più armonico Baconìn, influenzato dal rumoroso passaggio delle prime automobili varca la soglia dell’officina-garage di Amerigo Tomassini ed Ezio Conti ai quali chiede di poter lavorare nella loro bottega.

In brevissimo tempo Baconin, grazie alla passione per la meccanica che lo divora, diventa abilissimo non solo nelle riparazioni ma anche nella guida della anzianotta Storero. Purtroppo per Borzacchini, non c’è tempo per provare altre emozioni. Lo scoppio della guerra lo costringe alle armi, tenendolo lontano dai motori e dal profumo della benzina bruciata, fino al 1919. Alla cessazione delle ostilità Baconin torna nell’officina di Tomassini che riorganizza il lavoro affidandogli la responsabilità della scuola guida e del noleggio. L’uso quotidiano dell’Ansaldo, della Rapid, della Scat, della FIAT, fa acquisire a Borzacchini quella esperienza e sensibilità di guida che all’epoca nessun altro giovane può vantare. Grazie alle polverose e feroci sbandate nella Piazza del Duomo riesce a fare la conoscenza di Maria Mezzetti, che poi sposa nel corso del 1920.

Il virus della velocità, che si è manifestato attraverso le scommesse fatte con l’amico Peppe Pegoraro per affrontarsi, anche con la moto, sulla strada che porta al paese di Marmore, viene curato dall’intervento di Amerigo Tomassini che mette a disposizione di Baconin l’Ansaldo 4C per la disputa della Coppa della Mengara in calendario il 16 maggio del 1923. L’indiscusso primo posto di categoria che porta a casa, è il segno concreto del potenziale e della classe racchiusa in quel fisico ancora acerbo. Il risultato conseguito e la facilità con cui é stata ottenuta la vittoria esalta Borzacchini che decide di avere una Salmson GP.

Dopo averla acquistata e messa a punto nella meccanica con l’aiuto di Tomassini, Luigi Biagioli, Giovanni Vicario e Leonida Filippi, Borzacchini si presenta il 24 maggio del 1925 alla II Coppa della Perugina dalla quale, dopo un aspro confronto con Clerici, con Fagioli, Tortima, Berretta e Stacciari, esce a testa alta salendo sul secondo gradino del podio. Subito dopo la gara perugina segue la terza Coppa della Mengara alla quale partecipa l’eugubino Fagioli ottimo conoscitore della strada. Borzacchini, concentratissimo, dopo aver fatto percorrere alla Salmson le traiettorie più corte va a cogliere il successo di categoria che corrisponde ad un più importante secondo posto assoluto.
