One of the greatest riders of the early 1960s, Redman won the 350cc crown four years in succession, in addition to two titles in the 250cc class.
Redman was recently inducted into MotoGP's Hall of Fame, and the 75 year old, originally from Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), was justifiably rapt to be included in the company of such legends as Barry Sheene, Giacomo Agostini, Angel Nieto and Mick Doohan.
In addition to his GP victories (all won on Hondas), Redman also won 6 times at the Isle of Man TT and was the first rider ever to win three races in a single day, at the 1964 Dutch TT.
Over his career, Redman took 64 victories in a total of 98 podium appearances.

Redman inducted as MotoGP legend you're old enough to remember the 350cc class of motorcycle grand prix racing, then you're probably old enough to also remember Jim Redman.
