Killed in qualifying for Indianapolis just as his career was really starting to develop. Easily Phillippines' greatest driver, he picked up the racing bug from his dad, Eddie, who raced dragsters, bikes and even boats at an amateur level. Jovy raced in Asia, New Zealand, Europe and the United States (where he had been based since 1976) - winning the 1991 Toyota Atlantic Championship after finishing as the Rookie of the Year in the series the previous year. A prize in his name, in that series, for drivers is still awarded every year.
