The youngest driver to ever compete in a Formula I race at age 21, Chris Amon is an enigma in auto racing circles — a driver with unlimited potential who has been dogged by ill fortune throughout his career. When he was 17 he overcame his father’s plans for him to attend agricultural school and began running his own 250F Maserati in New Zealand club events. In 1962, he was refused entry at Le Mans because at age 19 he was too young, so he came back four years later and won the fabled 24 hour endurance race there. At one time or another over the last 10 years Amon has driven for some of the biggest teams in Formula I racing, including a lengthy stint with the Italian Ferrari team. Last winter, he scored his first Formula 5000 victory by winning a round of the Tasman Cup series in Australia while driving a Talon MR-1A for Jack McCormack of San Juan Capistrano. Amon will team this year(1975) with Australian driver Warwick Brown in a pair of identical Talons sponsored by Norris Industries of Long Beach.
