Pedro Rodríguez, so reserved a character but fabulously flamboyant behind a steering wheel, was the purest of racers. This is what he existed to do, from cycling events and horse-riding as a small boy, to motorcycle competition from the age of 12, and early contests on four wheels when 14, driving a Porsche 356A bought by his father. Pedro was still only 18 when he first went to Europe, to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours of 1958, marking the arrival of a remarkable racing talent, particularly in sports cars. Famed above all for his exploits in the legendary Gulf Porsche 917s, including two victories in the Daytona 24 Hours, he was at the height of his powers when he tragically perished. Now, in this long-awaited portrait by an old friend and associate, the purest racer at last receives deserved celebration.
