Jochen Rindt was born on April 18th, 1942 in Mainz in but he is brought up by his Austrian grandparents in Graz where he makes friends with a certain Helmut Marko. They begin together in competitions of touring cars.


Between 1963 and 1965 he ventures on several automotive categories. He participates for example LeMans 24 Hours for the second time in 1965 and wins the race with the Ferrari 250LM car number 21. He makes his first F1 season in 1966 by Cooper who is bound with Maserati and finishes third in the World championship. He integrates Lotus team in 1969 and turns out to be deserving successor of Jim Clark, died the year before on the Hockenheim track.


Despite some disagreements with Colin Chapman Jochen Rindt continues by Lotus in 1970 and is even announced as favorite. On the 10 races he participates this year, he takes three times the pole positions and wins 5 times. He was killed during the practices of the Italy GP in Monza on September 5th at the age of 28. Jochen Rindt was far ahead and he would have been able to end the season in a masterful way. He is until now the only one driver to have been posthumously titled.


We chose to reproduce Jochen Rindt according to the posture he had on a Rainer W. Schlegermich's famous picture. Sat in a campsite seat, a cigarette in the hand and the bottle of soda which waits at his feet, he is talking to Colin Chapman, Team Manager Lotus.

Photographer of the 50-60's

This representative character of the years 50-60, dressed in a jacket and in a pants is taking a photo with the famous and performing argentic device Rolleiflex. He could be a follower of Cartier-Bresson or Robert Doisneau roaming in the streets of Paris in search of the cliché which will make him famous.


Amateur or professional photographer could have been met around any tracks to immortalize the race, or into the paddock to catch on-the-spot unexpected reactions, or also around the cars where the Beauties compete in elegance to draw attention.

Pedro Rodriguez

Pedro Rodriguez is a Mexican driver who from 1958 until his death in July, 1971 participated in all the LeMans 24 Hours events. Whether it is for Ferrari, Porsche or Ford with whom he wins his first and only victory in Le Mans in 1968 with the Ford GT40, his talent is indisputable. He pursued for a long time at the same time pilot's career of Formula 1 and endurance. He dies a few months before his rival and team-mate Jo Siffert on the circuit of Nüremberg. 


When he was not helmeted to race, we recognized him by the cap in tartan of Sherlock Holmes. We found relevant to represent him with this strange hat and his helmet in the hands as we were used to see him in the paddocks.
