Who’s that driver?

Postby Reutemann » Thu Nov 28, 2019 5:44 am

Question for experts:
Who is on the picture?

I have bought bunch of autograph cards on eBay without description, most of them I was able to link with driver’s name, but this one :roll:

Any hint?

Berg was a quick Canadian who was part of that epic 1983 British F3 championship along with Senna, Brundle, Davy Jones, Calvin Fish, Johnny Dumfries, etc. Drove for Osella, then later got into racing management, and promotions.

That's Allen Berg. From my hometown of Calgary, Alberta. He raced for half a season for Osella in 1986. Due to the tragic circumstances with Elio de Angelis at Ricard Testing, which meant Derek Warwick moved to replace Elio's spot and Christian Danner did the same to cover for Derek's seat at Arrows. He got his first start in Detroit 1986.

Yep, good old Allen. I remember him being noted on GPI magazine. In fact I thin they sponsored him in F-3...

We're old, buddy!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
I remember they made the joke: "An Ice-Berg in F3".....
If I am not wrong, he was from some Nordic ascendance? OK, I mean, Canada is quite "Nord" but I mean scandinavia or Danemark, right?
