BORN TODAY

is Swedish F1-driver Jo Bonnier (1930-1972). Did you know that Bonnier had a crash in a race near Imola in 1958 where his 1500cc Maserati somersaulted over someone else's car, resulting in their crash helmets making contact mid-air? Now that's some Hollywood scripted racing right there. Bonnier took one win out of 104 GP starts. He was tragically killed in a crash at the 1972 24h of Le Mans.
