1969 Eagle T1F Pease

The Eagle Mk1, also referred to as the Eagle T1G, designed by Len Terry for Dan Gurney’s Anglo American Racers team, was the first F1 car by Eagle. The car made its race debut at the 1966 Belgian Grand Prix, and was used by various entrants until 1969. The last appearance of the car was when Al Pease privately entered Climax-engined Mk1 for the 1969 Canadian Grand Prix. Victor “Al” Pease, a British-Canadian motor racing driver, was 48 years old at the time. His F1 career was limited to 3 Canadian Grand Prix in 1967-69. Peace was not classified in 1967, failed to start in 1968, and disqualified for being too slow in 1969. After series of on-track incidents, the last involving Matra driver Jackie Stewart, Pease was black-flagged following official protest by Ken Tyrrell. The Canadian suffered the ignominy being the only competitor disqualified from a World Championship race Prix, for such a reason.
