Giovanni Lavaggi (born 18 February 1958) is an Italian racing driver.

A nobleman by background,[1] Lavaggi raised the money to buy ten Formula One Grand Prix drives, for Pacific and Minardi, debuting on July 30, 1995. In 1995 he was the only driver not to finish any of the F1 races that they started. He scored no championship points and was never close to the car's performance limits, being described as "desperately slow" by Jonathan Palmer, although he did well in his forays in sportscar racing.

Racing career

Lavaggi's Formula One career started in 1992, when he tested for the March team. In sports cars, he was the 1993 Interserie champion and won the 1995 Daytona 24 Hours, as well as scoring two wins in the FIA Sportscar Championship. Prior to Formula One, Lavaggi made two starts and failed to qualify for two additional races in CART for Euromotorsport and Leader Cards Racing. Lavaggi races under the banner of his own Lavaggi Sport (formerly known as GLV Brums) sportscar racing team, which in 2007 started building and racing its own Le Mans Prototype, the Lavaggi LS1, in the Le Mans Series.

He was nicknamed "Johnny Carwash" (an approximate translation of his name from Italian to English, John Washing[2]) by people in the paddock; US talk show host David Letterman helped bring the nickname to popular attention.[citation needed]

Family

His uncle, also called Giovanni Lavaggi, was a war pilot who was killed in 1941 on the same airplane as Italo Balbo.[3] In the city of Catania, Via Giovanni Lavaggi (Giovanni Lavaggi Road) is named after him.[citation needed]
