An F3 driver in the 90s, well-liked by all in the karting industry in the 2000s, the Monegasque Hervé Leclerc died on Tuesday 20th June at the age of 54 years after a slow deterioration of his state of health in recent months.
Hervé Leclerc passed on his passion for motorsport to his three sons, Lorenzo, Charles and Arthur. He was always with Charles to support his debut in karting, accompanying him first to the French and then international circuits, before following his brilliant progress in single-seaters. Beyond his investment in Charles's success, Hervé Leclerc was unanimously appreciated for his extraordinary generosity and sensitivity, which he shared with a wide circle of friends.
Close to the Bianchi family, the Leclerc were very much affected by Jules passing, Charles friend and role-model, whom Hervé has now joined.
