[#Ligier50years – Story #40] 2004-2005: more than 4️⃣0️⃣ years after the make’s creation, Ligier was back in Magny-Cours launching a CN, a new light sports-prototype, the Ligier JS49. A first client arrived: Jacques Nicolet. 🎙 “It was the first time I met Guy. He definitely lived up to his reputation! Carried away by our passion, we spent the night talking. We talked about the past, the good and bad memories. We talked about reshaping the world, at least the motorsport world. It was only a few years later that we talked about building our future together…” . . . #ligier #ligierautomotive #guyligier #endurance #motorsport #motorsporthistory #memories #changetheworld

[#Ligier50years – Story #39] 1️⃣9️⃣9️⃣6️⃣, Monaco, @olivepanis clinched Ligier’s first GP victory since 1981! On a wet track, the F1s were running off track one after the other, but Olivier managed to keep his Ligier JS43 with the Mugen Honda engine on the track, scored multiple fastest laps and crossed the finishing line in front of Coulthard’s McLaren. 🏎 💨 A great finish for the “Bleus” squad which thrilled France 🇫🇷 and its creator, Guy Ligier during 2️⃣0️⃣ years. The following year, the team was renamed Prost Grand Prix by its new owner. . . . #justraceit #ligierautomotive #ligier #F1 #F1Heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #monacogp #olivierpanis #mugenhonda #mclaren #davidcoulthard 📸 @dppiimages

[#Ligier50years – Story #38] 1️⃣9️⃣8️⃣7️⃣, the new Ligier JS29 with its Alfa engine did not make it to the first GP in Brazil! After some catastrophic tests at Imola, Arnoux declared to the press 📢 “the Alfa engines break like glass”. Alfa seized this opportunity and terminated the contract with Ligier. This blunder was very timely. Alfa was just incorporated into the Fiat Group which already owned Ferrari. One F1 team was enough for the Italian Group! Ligier was left without an engine and had to give up on the first GP. Years of hard times came afterwards for the “Bleus”, with only few upturns. . . . #justraceit #ligierautomotive #ligier #F1 #F1Heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #alfa #ferrari 📸 @dppiimages

[#Ligier50years – Story #37] 😢 1️⃣3️⃣ July 1986, England GP, Brands Hatch. Laffite was getting close to matching Graham Hill’s record of 176 GPs, with the pressure that came with this. 🎤 “Something felt off with this race! The 1️⃣3️⃣ July of my 1️⃣3️⃣th GP season, even if I’m not superstitious, how can I not think of it”. At the start, Laffite got stuck in a massive pile up and hit the rail at front. “Johansson’s Ferrari was suddenly in front of me, cutting me off. I turned and braked not to hit him. I was driving on the grass and my tyres had no more grip. In front of me there was a barrier. I was heading straight into it. It was time to pay the high price for so many years of happiness”. And what a cost! Fourteen hours of surgery, the heel bone broken in 48 pieces, multiple legs fractures and 7 at the pelvis. This was the end of a great F1 career and the end of an era for Ligier. . . . #justraceit #ligierautomotive #ligier #F1 #F1Heroes #F1photography #whenracingwasracing #jacqueslaffite #ferrari #johansson #brandshatch 📸 @dppiimages
