Zolder '82


26 years ago this week in May...we lost Gilles Villeneuve.
I was at Zolder that fateful weekend in '82,taking pictures of Didier Pironi in the pits,
suddenly everything stopped,people walking around with shell shocked eyes.
The truck coming back with the wreck of the Ferrari nr 27.
What i remember most was that Saturday evening,it was very quiet all around the track,spectators not knowing what to do but wander around in silence,
nobody could believe Gilles Villeneuve had gone,just like that...
here he is in happier times winning the 1981 Monaco Grand Prix
