    RiP - Alain De Cadenet

    "De Cadenet drove at Le Mans numerous times, finishing as high as third in 1976 in his own De Cadenet-Lola T380 Ford-Cosworth.

    He raced that car in the 24 Hours of Le Mans from ‘75 to ‘79 then switched to another De Cadenet, a Lola LM Ford-Cosworth.

    He also piloted two Cougars and a Porsche 956 at Le Sarthe. He drove a car listed as a Duckhams LM 72—with sponsorship from Duckhams Oil—to a 12th-place finish at Le Mans in 1972 after getting Gordon Murray to design the car.

    In 1980 he and co-driver Desiré Wilson, one of only five women to have ever raced in F1, won two rounds of the World Sports Car Championship, beating several factory teams at the Monza 1000 Kilometers and the Silverstone 6 Hours."

    Died July 2nd.

    meet hima few times and was happy with the way he treated everyone,notably, when holding a technical discusion, he would breakoff and quickly speak to others, then come back to the discusion without losing his place. RIP Alain.

    Ps that looks like Dick Bennet looking at AdC.s car
