EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative black-and-white photograph, taken by the renowned motorsport photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch, we find Jody Scheckter in deep concentration as he prepares for the start of the 1979 United States Grand Prix at the Streets of Long Beach. The image captures the raw energy and intensity of Formula 1 racing during an era when the sport was at the pinnacle of its popularity. The year was 1979, and Scheckter, a South African racing driver, was in his prime. He had already claimed the Formula 1 World Championship title in 1979, making him the reigning champion. In this race, he would be driving the iconic Ferrari 312T4, a car that would become synonymous with the Maranello team's success in the late 1970s. The photograph was taken on October 7, 1979, at the Streets of Long Beach circuit, which has since become a legendary venue in the world of motorsport. The tight and twisty streets of this Californian waterfront location provided a challenging and exciting backdrop for the drivers, testing their skills and courage to the limit. As Scheckter gazes intently into the distance, his expression reveals a mix of determination and focus. The crowd, which can be seen in the background, is a sea of people, their faces a blur of excitement and anticipation. The starting grid, with its array of colorful Formula 1 cars, is visible in the distance, adding to the sense of anticipation and tension. This photograph is a testament to the passion and excitement that Formula 1 racing generated during the late 1970s. It captures a moment in time, frozen in black and white, that encapsulates the essence of a sport that continues to captivate audiences around the world.
