Jean Bugatti - Jean, (aided by Jean-Pierre Wimille) persuaded his father Ettori Bugatti to re-enter Le Mans for 1939, after his father had said there was no need to continue in sports car racing. Bugatti, however, said “only one car can win, so you can only build one car”. The 1939 T57C 'Tank' won the race. A few weeks later, Jean Bugatti took the winning car for a test run. Swerving to avoid drunken bicyclist Jean lost control and crashed the car. He died, aged just 30.
