F1 Fact
WHO IS JOHN LANE? --- Giles Villeneuve probably wpuld not have made it to F1 had it not been for John Lane. At that time, Villeneuve was driving in Formula Atlantic for the extremely under-funded Ecurie Canada. After six rounds of the championship, Gilles held a commanding lead with five wins and 2 fastest laps to his credit. Then upon arriving at Mosport Park for the 7th round of the championship, the team was informed that the latest cheque from their sponsors had bounced. Gilles was reduced to watching the race as a spectator. As Gilles watched in desperation, his dreams rapidly fading, Harrison and team manager Ray Wardell were being approached by businessman John Lane with the offer of much needed financial input. John, who had been extremely impressed by the young Canadian, agreed to buy the rolling stock on the strict proviso that every effort was put into helping Gilles secure the 1976 title. John's investment and faith were amply rewarded when Gilles went on to win the three remaining rounds of the championship as well as taking all three poles and fastest laps.When John first approached Harrison and Wardell, he had $65,000 in the bank and much to his wife's chagrin, invested virtually all of it into the ailing outfit, such was his belief in the young Villeneuve. --- Sourced from
