Nigel Mansell

Nigel Mansell was F1 World Champion in 1992 and switching to the Cart Indy Car World Series in 1993 won the Championship in that series as well.  He had an incredible fighting spirit.  In the sweltering heat of the 1984 Dallas Grand Prix I watched stunned as he valiantly pushed his disabled Lotus towards the finish line until he collapsed from exhaustion.  His legion of fans identified with his determination and affectionately referred to him as “Lion Heart.”
