Stan Dibben is 86. In 1953 he was World Champion in sidecar racing, not the driver of the bike but the ‘passenger’, the one who manoeuvres their body around the sidecar, almost lying horizontally onto the racetrack as the bike navigates bends at speeds in excess of 70mph. Stan was also part of Donald Campbell’s Bluebird team that successfully broke the land speed record in Australia in 1964. I’ve just sent a link to the video to my father-in-law who at 80 did 3 laps in a Formula 2 car earlier this year. Slacker.
