Vic Elford

https://sportscar365.com/obituary/vi...es-away-at-86/

One of the greatest allround drivers has gone .
His results are amazing , as 1 driver who won Le Mans24 hr race , and Monte Carlo rally

Just checking , am now not sure about winning Le Mans , but he did win a lot of others .

Growing up in Central Florida, between Daytona & Sebring, Vic was an early childhood hero. I became a fan of the 917, and Quick Vic featured in our local media.

May he R.I.P.

The toughest of guys in an era of tough guys . Imagine the sensation now if a driver won Monte Carlo Rally , Daytona 24 Hours and Targa Florio, then finish 4 th in his debut GP , in the wet , in a crap car .

And in the same year - in fact, in a short space of a few months. It really beggars belief.

Drove all type of cars - and was quick in all of them!

I know it's inevitable, as Elford's star shone so long ago , but it is tragic that his death attracts just 8 comments. And if Lewis were to stub his thus weekend the story would break the internet and create at last a dozen conspiracy theories . (Did George trip him up ? )

Bloody tempus fugit innit..

I quite agree. I started a thread on another forum to celebrate his remarkable 50 anniversary of winning both Monte & Daytona - it attracted very little interest.

However, plenty of professionals in the sport have commented, which was good to see; they recognise the quality he had.
