Go Johnny Go !

Jose and Johnny Cecotto with Barry Sheene

Johnny Cecotto at age 19 (youngest World Champion ever) defeating
the great Giacomo Agostini.

 Cecotto qualified on pole for Daytona 200(with a stock race bike) but a pre-start motorcycle problem put him on the back row for the start - which he then passed the entire field and finished a solid 3rd Place.
One of the greatest race rides ever recorded.
Cecotto has one of the highest pole position(qualifying) to win ratios of any racer
Italian born, but he grew up in Venezuela - and still announces race coverage there.
