... Jacky Ickx.
Jacky Ickx, Belgium's most famous racing driver, won the last Canadian Grand Prix F1 at Mont-Tremblant in 1970. In his rich career, Ickx won 10 Grands Prix, became vice world champion twice, and was 6 time winner at Le Mans.
Ickx was at his best at extremely challenging circuits like the Nürburgring and... Mont-Tremblant.
Next weekend, Jacky Ickx will not be there. But another Belgian, Jan Heylen, is eager for revenge after his unlucky weekend at Cleveland.
I'm really looking forward to the champ car race at Mont-Tremblant. From what I've read and heard about it, I think this jewel in the mountains of Quebec will be the most challenging track of the season, together with Road America.
