We gasped and grasped at the opportunity to speak briefly with one of our all-time heros of Le Mans, Jacky Ickx. Jacky is our Original Mr Le Mans although in the same period he is challenged by Henri Pescarolo, Derek Bell and Hans Stuck. But it is Jacky that in times when drivers took their lives in their hands every time they mounted their steads that won Le Mans 6-times driving for Ford, Mirage and Porsche whilst also having driven for Ferrari at the Great Race as well as in Formula 1. In the aforementioned World Championship he won eight races and scored 25 podium finishes.
A great of our times, who’s thoughts on the 2017 85e of Le Mans 24h we are proud to have captured for your enjoyment. Click feed and hear Jacky speak about this ‘Racing Planet!’
