John Fitch has died at the age of 95. Honestly haven't heard of him but some of you must have.

I've heard of him. He raced in sportscars in the 1950s; the man was a legend. He was a big contender at Le Mans in 1955 when he handed his car to Pierre Leveagh who flipped into the stands. Fitch won Sebring a few years later.
RIP he will me missed.

I know this guy. He once invented the 'Fitch Inertial Safety Barrier' which has saved thousands of motorists lives.
