The Life and Times of a Champion Sidecar Racer
Stan Dibben was â€œnever frightened by speed.â€ After fighting in World War II he took up the sport of sidecar racing. In this popular sport of the time, riders and passengers would work together to maneuver â€œflying three-wheelersâ€ (essentially motorcycles with attached one-wheeled devices) around a track.
In 1953, Dibben won â€œthe big oneâ€—the World Sidecar Championship. This short film from Cabell Hopkins profiles one man’s love for the thrilling and dangerous sport that influenced his â€œalways say yesâ€ philosophy on life.
