Yes, I think it is. The driver looks like he's about to ask him for a light.

I thought it would be quite difficult. It just shows how driver safety & pit lane diclipline (smoking) has changed. Not surprising to find he died later in the year.

Who sang that? Maybe with your sad lack of motor sport history, you may fare better with pop music.

Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati, works driver, successful in sports cars, even able to beat Fangio in the same car. Good results in the Mille Miglia* And nobody knows who he is! Tragic.

*For the less learned (ie ignorant) the Mille Miglia was a thousand mile race around Italy, over semi closed roads, and never cancelled because of bad weather. Imagine any of today 'heroes' venturing out in a sports racer with drum brakes, no seat belts, HANS devices, fireproof overalls, and a cloth helmet.

Lesson endeth here.

You forgot to say he died in the Carrera Panamericana when his Lancia hit a house.

And he escaped injury in a huge crash also in a Lancia in the same event the year prior when he suffered a burst tyre. (Whilst leading the event.)


And on top of the good results in the Mille Miglia "bauble" mentioned, he also won the Targa Florio. (the year before he died)

Looking for a car. Well, three cars in fact.
"We thought we had won, thanks to our reliability offering a nice tir groupé. Our drivers were really good, especially one who did great things with the steering wheel. Unfortunately, a strange rule knocked us out. One year later we had a well-deserved revenge"…*
Place will be easy to find, year and car(s) not so much.
One clue: not Lotus…

Dont be shy, you can write here.
So clues are: not Lotus and not Monte Carlo Rallye related so not Mini Cooper either. But yes, it has to do with a strange regulation. Find who made this kind of rule to annoy some competitors…
