Motor Sport News - - Historics -

French sports car ace An­thony Bel­toise hon­oured the mem­ory of his fa­ther Jean-pierre by rac­ing a 1970 Ma­tra MS120 at Monaco.

The car was raced in pe­riod by Jean-pierre, who went on to score his only world cham­pi­onship F1 win at Monaco in 1972 with BRM. He died in Jan­uary 2015

“My fa­ther was an ex­am­ple to me and I re­ally wanted to pay trib­ute to him,” said An­thony, a dou­ble French GT cham­pion. “It was re­ally mov­ing to drive that car on such a leg­endary track.

“I wanted to fol­low his foot­steps and to be­come a driver, which I have now been for 20 years.”
