Jacky Ickx

Belgian driver, Jacky Ickx ruled sportscar racing in general and Le Mans in particular throughout the 1970s and 1980s, but his career effectively spanned four decades. Ickx was a multi-discipline master: one of the old school of drive anything, anywhere, anytime. Ickx was a top-line F1: he completed 25 podium finishes and was twice runner-up in the World Championship. His other titles include six-time Le Mans winner, five-time Spa 1000kms winner, multiple sportscar World Endurance Champion, European F2 champion and Paris-Dakar rally victor. Ickx remains a legend in the racing world. Although he’s best known for his Porsche associations in Martini and Rothmans liveried cars, he also worked with Ford and Ferrari.


Tom Kristensen

Tom is a Danish former racing driver. He holds the record for the most wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with nine, six of which were consecutive (from 2000 to 2005). In 1997, he won the race with the Joest Racing team, driving a Tom Walkinshaw Racing-designed and Porsche-powered WSC95, after being a late inclusion in the team following Davy Jones' accident that eventually ruled him out of the race. All of his subsequent wins came driving an Audi prototype, except in 2003, when he drove a Bentley prototype. In both 1999 and 2007 Kristensen's team crashed out of comfortable leads in the closing hours of the race. He is considered by many to be the greatest driver ever to have raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Elsewhere Kristensen also holds the record for most wins at the 12 Hours of Sebring with a total of six.

In August 2014, Kristensen was appointed Knight of the Order of the Dannebrog by the Queen of Denmark. In January 2018 he was inducted into the Danish Sports Hall of Fame.


Jochen Mass

Jochen Mass is a racing great with numerous successes to his credit. As a Formula 1 racer from 1973 to 1982, he drove for Surtees, McLaren, ATS and Arrows, among others. Before and after his Formula 1 career, he scored many wins in sports cars, most often driving Porsche or Mercedes-Benz sports prototypes. Jochen raced the 24 Hours of Le Mans eleven times. He took pole position in 1986 with a Porsche 962 C and won in 1989 with Sauber Mercedes. The German driver also has 114 Grands Prix to his name, including a victory in Spain in 1975.
