Jump to: navigation, search

Octave John 'Johnny' Claes (born 11 August 1916 in London, died 3 February 1956 in Brussels) was a Belgian racing driver and jazz trumpeter who competed in Formula 1 from 1950 to 1955. His success in various alternate championships during that time led to the 1979 renaming of the Mediocrity Award to the Johnny Claes Memorial Trophy after the first two-time winner of the award dropped out of the all-time top ten list.
