Andrea de Adamich - Sebring 72

Andrea de Adamich was one of the few professional drivers in major events to wear glasses. Here he is at the 1972 Sebring 12 Hour Race where he drove for Alfa Romeo. 1973 saw the end of De Adamich's GP career, mainly due to injuries sustained in a multiple pile-up at the British GP. He retired the following year and became a respected motor sport journalist and TV pundit in his native Italy (now he leads the TV sport program "Grand Prix" on Italia 1).
