The first racing pilots


This is an alphabetic list of the pilots that were officially entered and brought a reasonably flyable aircraft to one the meetings covered on this site. If you have researched any of the pilots and have material to share you are very welcome!

A red "on vole" pennant to the left of the name indicates that there is a link to a biography, either produced by us or by Wikipedia (in English, or if not available, in German, French or the native language of the pilot). We welcome further input to these biographies.
