John Miles, who died at the age of 74 on Sunday, was sadly one of the more forgotten racing drivers…
International motor racing and Formula 1 lost one of its greatest and enigmatic characters with the passing of Guy Ligier.
If one wanted to write a Hollywood script about a racing driver who started out with nothing, went on to race in Formula 1 late in life and then to found and run his own grand prix team then the Ligier story would be easy to adapt for the screen.
Jean-Pierre Beltoise died in Senegal on Monday 5th January 2015. A motor sport legend has left us at the age of 77.
Everyone loved Jean-Pierre who dedicated part of his time to teaching road safety. He lost his first wife Eliane in a roadcar accident and later his brother Jean-Claude 500 meters from their family home. Everyone in the GPDC expresses their most sincere condolences to his family; to Jacqueline his dear blond wife and Anthony and Julien his sons and all his friends.
