For years I wondered about that suave English dude on Legends of Motorsport on Speed TV. Here was this guy I had never heard of, who seemed to know absolutely everything about racing and yet I had never heard of him. Apparently, I had missed this little bit of racing history, as Alain De Cadenet was a true gentleman racer with some pretty solid credentials.
Newfound friend of The Garage, Lou Galanos was at Daytona in 1971 when De Cadenet co-drove this NART Ferrari 312P/71 to a 5th place finish along with team boss Luigi Chinetti and Nestor Garcia-Veiga.
This is just one of Lou’s huge collection of images taken at Daytona back in the day. You can see more of them on Flickr where he posts as Nigel Smuckatelli.
