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.
