Johnny Servoz-Gavin


Georges-Francis Servoz-Gavin, better known as "Johnny", was a motor racing driver in both sportscars and single seaters. Born 18 January, 1942, in Grenoble, France, Johnny was a rising star, becoming French Formula Three Champion in 1966 and the European Formula 2 Champion in 1969, following in the footsteps of Jacky Ickx and Jean-Pierre Beltoise. He started 12 F1 races, failing to qualify in one, between 1967 and 1970. His best year was 1968, in which he scored six points driving a Matra in the Italian Grand Prix. He only scored a fifth and a sixth in the next two years, however, and in 1970 after failing to qualify for the Monaco Grand Prix he retired. A man of good looks and high society, he is also known for being the driver in the film Rendez-Vous (1970).

Servoz-Gavin participated in 12 grands prix. He achieved 1 podium, and scored a total of 9 championship points.
