Last week I drew attention to a man who won nine world championships, a feat not equaled since. His record is just outstanding, look him up. He died in April this year. I asked, who was he? It was Ivan Mauger, the speedway rider, and while a ruthless competitor, he was a very intelligent and nice chap. I stood in for him as on-site medico for some of his speedway events in Brisbane, Australia.
So to this week. Known for keeping vehicles on the straight and narrow, or even just around the bend. His principle was patented by his manager, but is still used today, more than 200 years later. Who was he?
