JODY SCHECKTER Laverstoke Park Organic Farm
Jody David Scheckter (born January 29, 1950) is a former auto racing driver, the 1979 Formula One World Drivers Champion. He was born in East London, South Africa and educated at Selborne College.
Scheckter was the last driver to win a driver's championship for Ferrari until Michael Schumacher did so 21 years later. After Scheckter's retirement, he founded a company which built firearms training simulators. The sale of the company provided funds to allow Jody to help the racing careers of his sons Tomas and Toby. Tomas races in the Indy Racing League and held pole position for the 2003 Indianapolis 500. Jody's brother Ian also raced F1 for a few years.
He now spends his days as an organic farmer. Jody Scheckter came to Laverstoke Park in 1996 with the aim of farming organically to produce the healthiest, best-tasting food without compromise. This was to be by following nature very strictly, and, where appropriate, by carefully combining with today's high technology and latest research.
Jody Scheckter is an advocate of the research and ideas of Dr. Weston A Price.
