Dan Gurney

Dan Gurney was an America Formula One driver who raced in the Formula 1 World Championship between 1959 and 1970. Gurney won 4 Grands Prix and claimed 3 pole positions during his career and was a double winner of the French Grand Prix. His maiden victory in the 1962 French Grand Prix at Rouen-Les-Essarts has the distinction of being Porsche’s first and only F1 win to-date and his second victory, in the same event in 1964, marked the first championship victory for the Brabham team. His fourth and final victory came in the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, this time at the wheel of the Eagle-Weslake for Anglo American Racers, the team he founded with Carroll Shelby. Gurney also won the Le Mans 24 Hours race in 1967 and famously started the tradition of spraying champagne on the podium after the event. He died in California in January 2018 aged 86.
