OLIVIER GENDEBIEN: The Commendatore Enzo Ferrari called him “Piloti, che gente” as he was so consistent over hours and took great care of the cars. Urbane and well educated Gendebien was the heir to the Solvay chemical fortune. Regardless of lineage, Gendebien was in the WWII Belgian resistance in his home country and Holland. A nice tribute to Olivier https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/opinion/sports-cars/olivier-gendebien-sports-car-great
MASTEN GREGORY: The Kansas City Flash. Gregory was a hero of Jim Clark, Carroll Shelby and Joe Tierno. Tierno liked him because he was one of the only really quick drivers to wear glasses. Shelby said he was the fastest American to go to Europe and drive an F1 car. For a good, quick read on Gregory - http://www.atlasf1.com/2000/aut/cox.html
DAN GURNEY: If you are on this website and don’t know about Dan Gurney, shame on you. A true American hero from driving race cars to designing race cars to running teams and making innovations that revolutionized aerodynamics and auto performance.
