Old man on a motorcycle...
Auguste Maneschi from Lausanne on a Gilera, which looks like a Saturno 500. In his boots he always had an ignition key & a sandwich, because nobody knows how long you have to wait until you got back to the paddock.
Aged 80 Auguste was still hillclimbing. Here he is at the Hillclimb of Ollon-Villars, CH in 1965.

Tazio Nuvolari gives an autograph to a woman at Donington 1938. In the race he pushed his Auto Union to victory.
Today could have been Tazios 135th Birthday.

In the mirror...
Pedro Rodríguez getting ready for the 1000km of the Nürburgring 1970. He sits in his JW Automotive Porsche 908/03.
He battled with the second Gulf Porsche of Jo Siffert & Brian Redman for the lead.
But then his partner Leo Kinnunen, who had been affected by his friend Hans Laine's death the day before, crashed the 908/03 near the Karrusell, flipping in the air and Redman went right underneath his crashing teammate. They retired later due an engine failure.

Bill Vukovich 
Bill Vukovich who was considered by fellow drivers of his generation as the greatest driver of this century was certainly a big loss in the racing world. He was headed for his 3rd straight win at the 1955 Indianapolis 500 race when unfortunately, a chain-reaction caused his death. His car, after being struck by the driver behind him went airborne and landed upside down and somersaulted four and a half times then burst to flames. Fellow racer, Ed Elisian got off his undamaged car in an attempt to save Vukovich but it was in vain. It was unfortunate how little is known about this great driver today although he was the greatest driver of his time.

1955 Indianapolis 500.

Jack McGrath took the lead followed by Tony Bettenhausen but it was clear in the early laps that Bill Vukovich was going after a third consecutive win and he was ahead by the fourth lap. McGrath responded and retook the lead. The two battled and then Vukovich pulled away. At quarter-distance Rodger Ward lost control of his car in Turn Two. Two other drivers collided trying to avoid the crash and Vukovich arrived to find the track blocked. He hit one of the cars and his car was launched into a series of cartwheels which ended with the wreck over the wall in flames. Vukovich was killed.
