Bjorn Waldegard – 1943-2014 – Celebrating a life
We were deeply saddened to learn of Bjorn Waldegard’s passing last week, a man who captured the hearts of rally fans worldwide with two-decades of fantastic WRC performances.
When the dust settled on the 1979 WRC season Bjorn Waldegard had become the first official World Champion in rallying, a year which saw him drive for Rothmans, Ford and Daimler-Benz. He’d go on to continue winning rallies right up until the Safari event of 1990, at which he took first placed aged 46.
We’ll keep our words short, and we hope you enjoy this quick collection of our favorite Bjorn Waldegard memories. Rest in peace.
