This weekend, the Brussels Retro Fair honours the founder of the famous Ecurie Francorchamps, Mr. Jacques Swaters. He was a racing driver (not the best he says but it was fun), director of the Ecurie Francorchamps, a succesful business man as Belgian Ferrari importer and keeper of the Ferrari archives which led to the Jacques Swaters Foundation.

Here are some pictures taken yesterday evening of the homage to Jacques Swaters who celebrated his 80th birthday last week.

:confused: I think he was born on 30 October 1926 which would mean he is about to celebrate in nine days time.
