The Finish

May 27 1994.

We remember the feeling on this particular day being a rather sombre one. The Ferrari crew consisting of two Japanese dentists had died on May 24th 1994, whilst participating in the race, killing two officials. Both officials were good mates.

Finally… we have the official race order

This paper surfaced on 5th of December 2011 from Christos Mamalis – Driver of Car 32. – Thanks mate.

The cars on this page have now been put in the correct race order they finished.
