From a press conference last August at Road America on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of his win:
Q. Hector, you only ran one more race of any kind after winning here.
HECTOR REBAQUE: Well, this was my last race at that time in the CART
series. Then I went back to Europe and I drove one Formula 1 race at the
Race of Champions in '83, and then I retired.
Q. Why did you give up racing?
HECTOR REBAQUE: That's a very long story. I was hoping to get back to
Formula 1. Things didn't work out. After waiting for this opportunity in
'83, there was going to be a new team in which I was going to drive. It
didn't happen. Then I just did this one race in '83 and decided to retire.
It's a long story. I'll make it short (laughter).
Can anyone fill in the blanks?
