Twice Le Mans champion, a legend in sportscars, who made up for starting his career relatively late age-wise. Regular historic racer, who also is involved in his family's flight school. Never made it to Formula 1, despite very impressive performances and wins in F2 (runner-up in 1972) and F3 (He won the 1970 French Formula 3 title), but his age at the time may've counted against him. Unfortunately has been in poor health lately, but is slowly recovering. Jean-Pierre also raced in touring cars in the 1980's.
