  • Gianclaudio Giuseppe "Clay" Regazzoni (5 September 1939 – 15 December 2006) was a Swiss racing driver. He competed in Formula One races from 1970 to 1980, winning five Grands Prix. His first win was the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in his debut season, driving for Ferrari. He remained with the Italian team until 1972. After a single season with BRM, Regazzoni returned to Ferrari for a further three years, 1974 to 1976. After finally leaving Ferrari at the end of 1976, Regazzoni joined the Ensign and Shadow teams, before moving to Williams in 1979, where he took the British team's first ever Grand Prix victory, the 1979 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

He was replaced by Carlos Reutemann at Williams for 1980 and moved back to Ensign. Following an accident at the 1980 United States Grand Prix West he was left paralyzed from the waist down, ending his career in Formula One. Regazzoni did not stop racing, however; he competed in the Paris-Dakar rally and Sebring 12 hours using a hand controlled car during the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1996, Regazzoni became a commentator for Italian TV.

Lacking an offer for a competitive drive in 1980, Regazzoni re-joined Ensign. His season came to an abrupt end only four races into the year. He crashed during the 1980 United States Grand Prix West, held at Long Beach, when the brake pedal of his Ensign failed at the end of a long, high-speed straight travelling at approximately 280 km/h. Ricardo Zunino's retired Brabham was parked in the escape road. Regazzoni later recalled, "I hit Zunino's car, then bounced into the barrier. For about 10 minutes I lost consciousness. Then I remember terrible pain in my hips...". The crash left Regazzoni paralyzed from the waist down, ending his competitive career. On recovery, Regazzoni sued the race organisers, claiming their safety procedures were sub-standard. The race organisers won the case.

  • Como 20 años atrás... Agustín tenía este auto, un súper extra tinny Mini Cooper. Ayer estaba ayudándolo a  acomodar las fotos de todas las restauraciones de motos 🏍 y autos 🚘 que hizo y apareció el mini verde... Recuerdo la segunda cita que tuve con Agustín, me invito a salir, toco timbre en el depa donde vivía con mis hermanas cuando aún éramos estudiantes y solteras, y me dice vamos a comer, ok! Pero cuando íbamos rumbo al auto, en mi cabeza era que no sea ese carrito de juguete el auto de este chico, porfa que no sea... y era! Me hago la que me pareció normal, no dije nada, pero en mi cabeza era, seguro que este es uno de esos locos súper fanaticos que va a limpiar en cada cosa que le toque con una franela. Por suerte, no era tan así... pero el muy orgulloso de su auto me pregunta ¿que te parece mi auto? 🤔 simpático? Y ahí arranque... este auto llega a Buenos Aires?? ( 30 min. De la ciudad de La Plata) te lo mandaron por correo y lo armaste vos? Es que me precia que era un juguete 😂
Ahi lo maté 😂🤣 Ya se! Todo el mundo me decía esta re bueno el auto! Pero tenía tantos preconceptos de la gente amante de algo... con el tiempo me encariñe, pero es difícil porque hace de cuenta que vas con la cola arrastrando en el piso.. yo creo que cada pozo se siente como que caes al precipicio...
En síntesis, el mini verde era como que te venga el principe azul, y te pasa a buscar en un pony 😂😂
