International F3000 1994

Jean-Christophe Boullion,'94 champion

1994 produced a classic title fight in F3000. The battle went down to the final race between Jean-Christophe Boullion (above), Franck Lagorce, Gil de Ferran and Vincenzo Sospiri, and it was Frenchman Boullion who came out on top after a late season string of victories. He went on to race for Sauber in 1995 without much success, but was highly rated as Williams test driver. Lagorce raced briefly for Ligier at the end of 1994, while de Ferran graduated to CART, taking the title in 2000 with a resurgent Penske team. Sospiri would reach F1 for one qualifying attempt with the Lola disaster. Future Champ Car star Max Papis took one win but had an otherwise disappointing season, while David Coulthard finished second in his single race for Vortex before Williams called him up to replace the late Ayrton Senna.
