Derek Daly, the Shamrock Speedster, was born in Dublin in 1953. Working in the iron ore mines of Australia he surfaced with enough cash to buy a racing car. He forged ahead and in 1977 won the British Formula 3 Championship in his rookie year, scoring five consecutive wins in the last five rounds. His first and final Formula 1 outings both came in the United States, the 1978 Long Beach Grand Prix and the parking lot special, the 1982 Las Vegas Grand Prix respectively.
 
Daly also drove in Indy cars and won the Sebring 12-hours in 1990 & ’91.
