A concept car to make the automobile safer

Towards the end of the sixties, too many grave injuries and even fatalities were happening in motor racing. These made the headlines of newspapers worldwide, and this, coupled with the wave of automobile safety consciousness which began to rise in people's minds - notably in the USA - caused some to react.

45 Jacques Swaters - A Ferrari Life
An appreciation from an old friend

One of the last of the "Old Guard", Jacques Swaters, who had been involved in the forging of the Ferrari name to the international stature it enjoys today, passed away peacefully in his sleep in Brussels at 84 years of age. Jacques Swaters' first contact with Ferrari came in the Spa 24 Hours Race in 1948, where he was competing in a pre-wat MG with co-driver, and later to be the renowned motoring writer and journalist, plus 1960 Le Mans winner, Paul Frère.
