Sir Jackie remembers a friend and fallen hero

October 24 of this year will mark 50 years since the passing of Swiss motorsport hero Jo Siffert, who was tragically killed at Brands Hatch in 1971 in a season ending non-championship F1 race.

The two-time Grand Prix winner and legendary Porsche sportscar driver's memory was revived last weekend at the Swiss Viper Museum in Givisiez where a special exhibit of Siffert's car is ongoing.

The commemoration was attended by the Siffert family and many distinguished guests, including three-time F1 world champion Sir Jackie Stewart, a close friend of the late Swiss driver.

Sir Jackie paid a heartfelt tribute to Fribourg's local hero after visiting Siffert's grave earlier in the day.

Because you never forget those fallen on the battlefield.
