With regards to the recent article ‘100 Greatest Drives’, I’d like to add a few more to your list: John Cannon, in the rain, in the 1968 Laguna Seca CanAm race; Gilles Villeneuve, in the rain, in the 1976 Formula Atlantic race, at Gimfi, Canada, when vision was down to 15 feet.
My other nominations are Alex Zanardi and Juan Montoya for their last-to-first charges at Cleveland CART races in different years.
