The Clay Regazzoni honor room is located in the wonderful premises of the “Autobau” museum in Romanshorn Switzerland. In fact, the “room” is a big two story hall, completely new built and opened in October 2021. It contains several of Regazzoni`s racing cars, as well as a huge collection of trophies, helmets and personal memorabilia of Switzerlands most successful F1 racing driver.  On loan from the Regazzoni family, all the items were relocated from a smaller facility in Lugano to “Autobau”.  Autobau owner and  Swiss ex-racing driver Fredy Lienhard and Regazzoni obviously knew each other from racing. And after Clay`s untimely death from a road accident in 2006 in Italy, the Regazzoni family stayed in contact. During festivities of Clays` 80 th  birthday in Romanshorn, the idea  was born, to give the collection a new and appropriate home. What was closer than showing  the precious cars to a wider public within the “Autobau”  area. Regazzoni, also known as the “indestructible”, did win five F1 GP´s between 1970 and 1980 for Ferrari and Williams and was runner up in the 1974 F1 world championship.  He competed in 132 F1 GP`s scoring 212 points. His professional career came to an end when he sustained severe injury during the 1980 Long Beach GP, which left him paraplegic for the rest of his life. Although, Regazzoni never gave up racing. After this accident, Regazzoni became known for his activities in helping disabled people get equal opportunities in life and society. Despite his disability, Regazzoni was determined to live as full a life as possible. Regazzoni won back his racing licence and became one of the first disabled drivers to participate in high-level motor sports. Although his injuries made a Formula One return impossible, Regazzoni raced with some success in rally raids and sportscars. The exhibition pays full tribute to the man and his career. Currently on display are the following cars: - the Ferrari 312B3 with which he came second to E. Fittipaldi in the 1974 F1 World Championship - his championship winning Tecno 70 F2 car. He won three of eight races of the European F2 championship - and a wonderful  March 782 F2 car with which he competed in a Swiss Hillclimb as well as various Ferraris, and Ford Mustang from his private collection So if you happen to be in Switzerland, take your time and see “Autobau” in Romanshorn and of course the “Clay Regazzoni honor room”. https://www.autobau.ch/
