At Charade were the Charade Heroes celebrating the 60th anniversary of the racing track this weekend. Ligier was represented by a lot of old and young cars.
The Ligier JS9 was part of the event. It was the car of Jacques Laffite during the 1978 Formula 1 championship. I would like to share with you these videos because that car is just a piece of technical art.
All the people present on this video are real heroes of the Ligier & Martini stories. Tico Martini on the left is the founder of the Automobiles Martini.
Automobiles Martini made a lot of Formula 3 cars on the last century and had real successes in this category.
Michel Beaujon (with the blue shirt) is one of the designer of the JS9 with Gérard Ducarouge and Robert Choulet.
The JS9 weights 580Kg due to an Aluminum chassis. It is powered by a Matra MS76 V12 engine with a great sound.
So enjoy the sound again and again !
