    He won the first race I ever attended, which also happened to be his maiden start for Ferrari, I believe, the 1963 12 Hours of Sebring. He very generously spent a good 20 minutes in the paddock at Goodwood reminiscing about it with me. He will be missed and his dual championships will likely never be matched.
