Beltoise Jr honours father in Matra at Monaco
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.”
