Gijs van Lennep


Gijs Van Lennep, born March 16, 1942, was a Dutch journeyman racecar driver who gave a good account for himself in his four F1 drives. He drove for the Porsche sports car team from 1967 and won the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1971 with Helmut Marko.

That year his sponsors hired a Surtees for him to make his F1 debut in his home GP where he finished 8th. The following year Van Lennep won the F5000 Championship in a Surtees and drove twice for the Williams GP team winning his only championship point with 6th place in the Austrian Grand Prix.

In 1973 he won the Targa Florio, with Herbert Müller, in a Porsche 911 Carrera RSR.

He continued with sports car racing winning the Le Mans 24 Hours for a second time in 1976 with Jacky Ickx before retiring.
