Villeneuve – 30 Years Passing …

Though it has been a full 30 years today since Gilles Villeneuve was lost to us on that track in Zolder, his fearlessness, passion and driving art are forever remembered.

He had the love of his public, and the respect of his fellow drivers. He did not play politics or games, and raced with his heart, sometimes pulling off the seemingly impossible.

Three decades after his death, the love of his public and the respect of his fellow drivers are just as strong …

Cheers to you, Gilles!
