Profile

Robert La Caze was born in France but is the only F1 driver to race under the Morrocan flag. He spent most of his career competing in rallies in North Africa where he eventually caught the attention of a young Ken Tyrrell and was offered a drive at the 1958 Moroccan Grand Prix. Racing a mid-engined Cooper Climax, he went up against some of the biggest names in the sport and finished a respectful 14th from 23rd on the grid. He later ran a garage in Marrakech and was also a national skiing champion.
