Jacky Ickx was born on January 1st, 1945 in Brussels/Belgium and was one of the most versatile racers who was competing in a variety of disciplines, but never became world champion in the Formula 1, but twice runner-up.
First he started in motorcycle racing and was also very successful, but in 1966 he switched to racing cars. In 1969, he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time and won 5 more times, keeping the record for the legendary race for a long time. Even in the exhausting Paris Dakar Rally, Jacky Ickx was successful in 1983.
Like many other drivers, he started in Formula 2 and then Formula 1, where he joined Team Tyrrell in 1966. Only two years later, after Jacky Ickx had switched to Ferrari, he managed his first Grand Prix victory. During his 13 years in Formula 1, he won 8 Grand Prix races and became in the years 1969 and 1970 Vice World Champion behind Jackie Stewart and Jochen Rindt, who became posthumously World champion after the tragic accident during training in Italy.
