The American part ruins it.. I was going to say Peter Lenz. That would have made a fantastic essay.

^Never heard of Saarinen, good one. Quite the modest grave he's got for having accomplished so much.

Anyway, Mike Hailwood would be a fairly obvious choice but cool guy to read about. Steve Hislop would also be fun to write about.

Burt Munro.

But check the facts after watching the movie ;)

A remarkable man, nonetheless, one of the very few I admire. I think he embodies what riding a motorbike is all about.

Oooo Kato would be a good one but it would be a difficult one as I doubt there is much information to be had one being that he's Japanese which means what info there is is in a foreign language and two because of his short professional riding career outside of Japan.
Yeah I was thinking about Shoya Tomizawa, but there isn't a lot of info available.
