racing hero dead Michel Ferte dead aged 64: Le Mans runner-up and Formula 3 driver passes away after illustrious motorsport career

Ferte’s passing at the age of 64 was announced by Le Mans organiser the Automobile Club de l’Ouest. He then followed this up by claiming victory in the 1983 French F3 Championship after coming second the year prior. But perhaps his most famous race in Motorsport came at the 24-hour Le Mans race. Following his F3 exploits Ferte made the jump to F2, the series directly below F1. But things did not go as well for him there, as he failed to earn a race win but did come third in the championship in 1984. Ferte started racing in karting in aged 12 and carried on racing until as recently as 2018.
