Pat Vidan, flagger from Oregon, who was official starter at Indianapolis from 1962 to 1979 was also a cartoonist. I'd heard he would do cartoons at the side of the track between races when he was still flagging in Oregon. Here's the first cartoon I've every seen by him.

A Saturday Video

Short, but informative. And somewhat entertaining.

I can't remember when this was originally published. Obviously way back. Thanks again to the late Don Radbruch for sending me the Harry Miller info.

Harry Miller, some info

From some stuff Don Radbruch sent me. He used to think I needed to know things. He was correct, as usual.

Cheers Don.

Tom Walther, RIP

Thirty years ago, in Japan, motorcycle racer Tom Walter lost his life. Noticed this memorial in today's newspaper.

A good link to Tom and his family's involvement in motorcycle racing.

(And, yes, I'm still here. Trying to sort out many things. Not giving up on much. Which makes this blog less of a priority. Hopefully this will change soon.)
