O piloto norte-americano Dan Gurney morreu neste final de semana, aos 86 anos. Ele foi o primeiro piloto a vencer provas em várias das principais categorias do automobilismo mundial como Fórmula 1, Fórmula Indy, 24 horas de Le Mans e Nascar.⠀⠀Na Fórmula 1 ele foi o segundo piloto a vencer uma prova dirigindo seu próprio carro , o no GP da Bélgica de 1967.(o primeiro foi Jack Brabham, um ano antes).⠀⠀Ao vencer as 24 horas de Le Mans, na companhia do também lendário A. J. Foyt, ele quebrou a tradição e "pulverizou" o champanhe que recebeu pela vitória, criando um costume imitado até hoje em todas as categorias.⠀⠀Ele também foi o primeiro piloto a usar um capacete fechado, o único a conquistar uma vitória com a Porsche como montadora Por fim, em seu tempo de Indy, ele criou o dispositivo aerodinâmico Gurney flap, usado até hoje nos aerofólios traseiros tanto na Indy quanto na Fórmula 1.⠀⠀Dan Gurney 1931 - 2018#autosgiros #dangurney #piloto #driver #f1 #formula1 #findy #nascar #lemans24hr #lemans #lemans24h #champagne #capacete #porsche #brabham

Dan Gurney, is a legend in #motorsport who passed away on Sunday morning, as a result of pneumonia. He was 86 years old. Gurney was like no other driver, engineer or constructor. Together with Carroll Shelby, Gurney also founded All American Racers, a team he would run for decades that produced winning cars in a similarly diverse set of racing: from the big oval of #Indy to the forested snake called the #Nürburgring.His career in motorsport both in #Formula1 and #IndyCar, where he would earn two second-place finishes at the famed Indy 500. In the former category he would count four world championship race wins during his #F1 #racing career, along the way earning the first victories for #Porsche and #Brabham in Grand Prix competition. Most impressive of course is the first place finish at Spa in the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix, where Gurney drove an AAR Eagle to beat the likes of Jackie Stewart, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Pedro Rodriguez, and Jochen Rindt. Spa was the first and only time a car was designed built and driven to victory by an American driver.The week before Gurney and Le Mans rookie A.J. Foyt won the #LeMans 24 Hours in their bright red #GT40 MkIV. However their antics a short while after the chequered flag are arguably better known. In the words of A.J. Foyt “Dan was a big part of that win and I’m just glad to have been on his team. He sprayed Henry Ford II all up and down with champagne and I said ‘man, that’s the boss you’re spraying!’”

On This Day - the 1978 Argentine Grand Prix held at Buenos Aires.Mario Andretti took pole in his Lotus, with Carlos Reutemann's Ferrari joining him on the front row and Ronnie Peterson in the other Lotus third on the grid. The start was uneventful, with Andretti and Reutemann easily keeping first and second, with John Watson in the Brabham taking third from Peterson. Watson took second from Reutemann on the seventh lap, but Andretti was uncatchable. Reutemann ran third for a while, but then began to drop down the order, and so reigning world champion Niki Lauda took third in his Brabham, which became second with ten laps left when Watson's engine blew up. Andretti motored on to a crushing victory, with Lauda second and Patrick Depailler's Tyrrell taking the final spot on the podium.First Race: Didier Pironi, Williams and Lamberto Leoni. This was Niki Lauda's first race for Brabham.#onthisday #NeverForgotten #F1 #f1az #f1aze #f1azerbaijan #formula1 #azerbaijangp #azinsta #azinstagram #rahimnaliyev #marioandretti #lotus #brabham #nikilauda #williams

Unfortunately, former @f1 racer Dan Gurney died from pneumonia in California yesterday at the age of 86, although he only won four grands prix, he is considered as one of the best F1 drivers never to win a title and invented the champagne-spraying celebration after winning the 1967 Le Mans 24 Hours whilst American magazine Car and Driver wanted him to run for president in 1964 but he was only 33 (the campaign is resurrected before every American presidential election by his friends and fans) #RIPDanGurney #ScuderiaFerrari #Ferrari #BRM #Porsche #TeamLotus #LotusBRM #Brabham #CoventryClimax #BrabhamClimax #AllAmericanRacers #Weslake #EagleWeslake #McLarenF1 #Cosworth #McLarenCosworth #f1 #formulaone #formula1 🇺🇸

.CARRERAS DE UN DÍA COMO HOY:El 15 de enero de 1978 se disputó el #GPdeArgentina en el circuito Municipal de Buenos Aires, competencia vencida por Mario #Andretti sobre el #Lotus 78, dupla que al final del año serían respectivamente los ganadores de la copa de pilotos y de constructores.La foto, tomada en el box del equipo #Brabham, muestra claramente la situación socio-política reinante en aquel entonces..Vía: Marcelito Vila#F1
