Walter Cronkite at Speed

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, we’ve lost “the most trusted man in America”. It wasn’t until today that I found out having spent the weekend at the Kohler International/Brian Redman Challenge at Road America (more on that to come as I sort out my photos and video from the weekend).

Cronkite was also once a promising young racing driver in the 1950s, campaigning his Volvo PV444 at endurance events on the East Coast, as well as piloting a Lancia at the ’59 Sebring endurance race. There’s a lot more wonderful information about Cronkite’s racing and race-reporting at this New York Times article.
