This stocky former Porsche racer made his name while paired with Pedro Rodriguez throughout 1970 in the works-backed JW/Gulf Porsche 917. He later contested the thinly supported Interserie contest for big Group 7 sports cars and made the mistake of renting an uncompetitive Surtees TS16 for the 1974 Swedish Grand Prix.
