On August 23, 2015 Guy Ligier passed away at the age of 85. For nearly half a century, he has marked the history of motorsport. However, it is only when he was in his thirtiesthat this all-round sportsman took the turn in motorsport. Few French drivers have scoreda point in the F1 world championship, Guy Ligier has done it! For Guy, F1 is also the death of a dear friend, Jo Schlesser. As a tribute, Guy Ligier, who became a constructor, will name all his racing cars with the initials JS. This book traces the history of one of the most beautiful French Formula 1 teams. For twenty-one years, from the JS5 to the JS43, the last Ligier to win a Grand Prix, the Vichy team will have competed in 326 Grand Prix, for 9 victories and 50 podiums. Relive this epic illustrated by the superb photos of Bernard Asset.
