7/6/1934, Peter Monteverdi is born in Basel, Switzerland.

A Swiss automaker and creator of the automobile brand Monteverdi, Peter was also quite a competent hill climb racer in his days. From 1952 on he produced his own cars under his name and, in 1961, built the first Swiss Formula 1 car – and drove it, too. The MBM (Monteverdi Basel Motors) was actually a Formula Junior car with a strengthened chassis and an engine he had transplanted from a brand new Porsche RSK. Monteverdi bought the Onyx Formula 1 team late in 1989 and renamed it Monteverdi-Onyx for the 1990 season. The team survived only until the 10th race of the 16-race season before closing down.

Born: 7th of June 1934 in Basel, Switzerland;
