Cars are nothing without people. Somebody has to design them, build them, drive them on the street and in competition. We decide through our reviews, commentaries, and purchases which cars are successful, which are failures, and which are classics. The following is an alphabetical list of all the Topic Pages in the Library on people, along with a very short description of their connection to automobiles.
A few notes about this list...
The category a person is listed with depends on how they were entered into The Crittenden Automotive Library, which is based on what information we have on them, and if multiple categories apply generally the one the person is most known for is used. For example, Bernie Ecclestone is widely known as the head of Formula 1, but he did technically attempt to qualify for an F1 race in 1958. His long career as head of Formula 1 far outweighs his very minor driving career, and he is classified as a Racing Sanctioning Body Executive.
"Author" can refer to a wide variety of writing, from articles and commentaries published here at the Library or books printed by major publishers (Journalist refers to professional news writers). Because of the fundamental differences between types of racing, there are separate categories for "Race Car Driver," "Drift Driver," and "Drag Racer."
