Francois Cevert, the glamorous, rising French star of motor racing was about to step into Jackie Stewart’s number one role at Tyrell when his life was tragically ended by a crash in practice for the United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen.
Cevert signatures are extremely rare, and the Speedsport Gallery in now fortunate to be able to offer a very clear Cevert autograph which was collected at Crystal Palace in May 1970 when Cevert was competing in the traditional May Bank Holiday International Formula 2 meeting. We acquired this item directly from a gentleman who went to this event as a 15 year old boy and collected many autographs in his programme.
This programme is signed by Cevert on page 38, to his entry listing for Heat One of the Formula 2 Trophy race where he was entered in his usual Tecno Cosworth FVA.
Andrea De Adamich has also signed to his entry in the Jolly Club Brabham BT30.
The front cover is also clearly signed by Graham Hill and other autographs to the back include Alan Rollinson and Mike Crabtree plus a few others we can’t identify !
