This is an In Person Signed White Card 5" x 3" by the Swedish former Formula 1 Racing Driver.
Reine Wisell (born September 30, 1941) is a former racing driver from Sweden. He participated in 23 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on October 4, 1970. He achieved 1 podium, and scored a total of 13 championship points. He also participated in several non-Championship Formula One races. He won the Swedish Formula 3 Championship in 1967 and three years later he made the big step and signed with Team Lotus who were the best team this year. In the 1970 United States Grand Prix in Watkins Glen, Wisell raced for Lotus who made their return in the championship after Jochen Rindt's tragic death at Monza. Rindt's death caused his team-mate John Miles to retire and Wisell replaced him. His first grand prix was the best in his career as he achieved a third place finish, trailing only his team-mate and future champion Emerson Fittipaldi and Pedro Rodriguez and finishing ahead of title contender Jacky Ickx. This result was the Wisell's best, as the subsequent years were not so good for him, and he retired after his home grand prix in 1974.
