1987

The beginning of the season is marked by the absence of the big names, because of their suspension of licences further to their refusal to participate in the 1986 World Championship. Alessandro Zanardi (ITA) achieves the feat of landing the European title by winning all five rounds of the Championship. Gianpiero Simoni (ITA) prevails in the World Championship held at Jesolo (ITA), ahead of Tom Kristensen (DNK), the Driver who currently holds the absolute record of wins in the automobile Le Mans 24 Hours. Michael Schumacher (DEU) finally lands a title, after several runner-up places over the previous seasons: he is crowned European Inter A Champion at Göteborg (SWE). Jan Magnussen (DNK) wins the CIK-FIA Juniors’ Cup in Laval (FRA), where it is also worth noting that the Brazilians Christian Fittipaldi (6th) and Rubens Barrichello (9th) come in the Top ten. At Magione (ITA), Alessandro Piccini (ITA) lands his first world title in the 125cc gearbox category. He will subsequently take three more (1990, 1991 and 1993).
