Another man I’d like to know more about – born in Paris of wealthy American racing parents – “Arree” was a character in an era of characters. He funded (or under-funded) his own entries in the early ’50s, drove at Indianapolis, later drove for Ferrari, Vanwall and BRM – running near, but rarely at, the front. A cautious man, he was a known practical joker and startled the field at the ’59 USGP at Sebring by putting his Cooper on the pole – he’d allegedly found a short cut where no one was watching. What would Bernie say?
