Mini Bio (1)
Joakim (Jo) Bonnier was the first great racing driver from Sweden. He started out as an ice racer in Sweden, before driving on dry race tracks. He started his Grand Prix career in 1956 and sustained a pretty good job as a race driver for three decades, winning the 1959 Dutch Grand Prix and several sportscar races. Bonnier was killed at Le Mans, France, in 1972 when his Lola collided with a Ferrari. The collision launched him over the barriers into the trees.
