Dan was the only US driver to win an F1 race in a car of his own design! One of the most beautiful F1 cars ever!

Well, this is sad news indeed. It seems between rock music icons and driving masters, we are losing heroes at an alarming rate lately. It goes without saying that Dan was one of the greatest all round racer, designer, manager, etc., and a very nice guy to boot. He will be missed. Dan Gurney, R.I.P.
