The Life and Times of a Champion Sidecar Racer
Stan Dibben was “never frightened by speed.” 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 “flying three-wheelers” (essentially motorcycles with attached one-wheeled devices) around a track.
In 1953, Dibben won “the big one”—the World Sidecar Championship. This short film from Cabell Hopkins profiles one man’s love for the thrilling and dangerous sport that influenced his “always say yes” philosophy on life.
