Didier Pironi (1952 - 1987)

Didier Pironi was a French racing driver, a very succesful one, he dominated lower Formulas, he won the 24 hours of Le Mans, he drove in Formula 1, he won Grand Prix and almost became France's first F1 world champion back in 1982. He was also a very intelligent, well-educated man who was interested in many things beyond racing. The story didn't have a happy ending, you may know about it and come here regularly to see if I finally updated something.

Or somebody told you the name, you asked Didier Who?, googled it and ended up here.

However, this is the place to get all information you can get on Didier. Enjoy exploring.

A new nice project is about to start. Just recently I managed to put my hands on the upper half of the bodywork of a 1974 Matini Mk14 Formula Renault car. It's in relatively poor shape and has to be repaired and repainted in the colours of the car that Didier used that season. Stay tuned!

The new French magazines seem to have chosen Didier Pironi as a continuous subject. Titled 'Amis à mort' issue #10 contains an article about the meanwhile classic rivalry between Didier and Gilles Villeneuve. Can't say much about the contents as I don't have it here.
