Mark Donohue

Legendary race car driver Mark Donohue. Donohue was a gifted driver who could drive just about any kind of car and win. He was a national champion in SCCA racing, FIA racing, Can-Am racing, Formula 1 and he even won the Indy 500. He tragically died testing the March 751 Formula 1 car in 1975. Today his death might have been preventable due to the knowledge gained, and safety devices developed, after the untimely death of Dale Earnhardt. This image was scanned from a photo that I picked up at one of the races.
