Born today in 1929 he is the only driver to win the 24 hours of Le Mans, The Formula One World Championship and the Indianapolis 500 (1966). He only had 3 starts (1966-’67-’68) winning in his first year while leading ten laps. (This was also Chief Mechanic George Bignotti’s third of 7 Indy victories) The next 2 years saw mechanical woes keep him from finishing but he did have a middle of the front row start in 1968. I always liked his unique helmet design too.
