The 1970 Italian Grand Prix was held at Monza on September 6. Clay Regazzoni won the race in a Ferrari, followed by Jackie Stewart in a March-Ford and Jean-Pierre Beltoise in a Matra. The weekend was marred by yet another death: this time it was championship leader Jochen Rindt in a crash at the Parabolica curve on Saturday. The Year Of Death had captured the ultimate victim.
