Too bad he missed out on Le Mans 67, where he was favored to win. A bad crash, and the sister car took the victory. Mario survived, thanks to the chassis improvements made after Ken Mile’s death in the J-car.

Check out John Surtees too . Only person to win world championships on two and four wheels.

He used to say Concorde helped, he could race in one series and be across the Atlantic in time for another.
