Jacky Ickx

It happened today – 20 September

On 20th September 1970, Jacky Ickx won the Canadian Grand Prix. It was the second of three wins that the Belgian secured while with Ferrari. However, it was not enough to give him the title crown, which went posthumously to Austria’s Jochen Rindt, who was killed a fortnight earlier at the Italian Grand Prix. With the works Lotus team absent following the tragedy at Monza, the main rival to the Ferrari 312 B at the Mont Tremblant track was the Tyrrell of Jackie Stewart, who took pole position and dominated the early stages of the race. On lap 32, the Scotsman had to retire when a halfshaft broke, leaving the way clear for Ickx, who himself had a comfortable lead over his team-mate Clay Regazzoni, the gap being maintained to the chequered flag.
