Welcome to the Tribute To Elio De Angelis Homepage!
This website was the first to be published in dedication to the memory of Elio de Angelis, the former Shadow, Lotus and Brabham Formula 1 driver, and is now celebrating it’s 18th year of existence since its conception in 1999.
Through these pages you will relive the history of one of the most popular icons of 1980’s Formula 1 motor racing; from the unforgettable image of Elio with his legendary white Simpson Bandit helmet set against the black and gold of the sleek John Player Special Lotus cars to the stunning avant-garde Gordon Murray designed Brabham BT55.
So sit back and enjoy a trip down memory lane to a golden age of Formula 1 motor racing. But most of all, remember a charming and genuine gentleman whose manners and values were from another age, and whose legacy would live on through the decades.
This website was redesigned in June of 2017.
