The other Jaques Villeneuve

He says he hopes to race again this winter if he can find more speed in his snowmobiles.

A positive attitude is one of the things that will help him, of course.

Oh dear, it's not been a great few years for him, has it? Let's hope for the best.

does anyone have a current update on jacques?
i got to know him fairly well when he was in the atlantic series. i always liked him and we got along quite well. i guess you could say he was always more "country" than gilles so it makes sense to me that he was not interested in leaving north america to race.
here are a couple of images of him and gilles together on the pre-grid prior to the atlantic race in trois rivieres in '76.
i hope he makes a full recovery.
there are a fair number of pics of jacques in my atlantic set......eventually there will be more
and one of jacques in the 2 liter osella can am car.....

Reading this thread, you'd think Jacques Snr was some sort of wannabe racer trailing disconsolately in his brother footsteps. I don't recognise that at all. Just to recap, these are the major International series that he WON:
I'm sure he was very happy for his brother when GV got into F1 but JV was a star in his own right.
