If it can wait until Monday or so, I have 'potted' bios of several that might fit your criteria:
This is an area which needs much more attention and where the F1-only maniacs have perhaps done their greatest harm -- there gazillions of sites devoted to F1, each cribbing from the same few sources & repeating the same errors unaware that there is addenda covering these, while many other equally worthy topics get scant attention.

Don - thanks - well, just one f'rinstance would be Geoff Brabham - another Manuel Reuter - John Nielsen - Tom Kristensen...those kind of perfectly well wired-up pros who never 'made it' into Formula 1, or preferred to earn a living (and actually win something) outside of it. The reason is that I have only just become aware of how restricted so many of these 'encyclopaedic' sites are, if a name doesn't appear on an F1 grid in a World Championship-qualifying race from 1950 they seem never to have existed... Come in Berardo Taraschi, all is forgiven...

Hi all! Perhaps anyone knows something about Bob Garretson? He won the Daytona 24 hours 1981 and the Sebring 12 Hours 1978. But what is he doing now? How can I reach him? Perhaps has anyone an idea how to contact him? I want to send him a letter. Every help is very much appreciated. Thank you. Regards from Vienna - Alfred
Was surprised anyone at the lunch knew of him.
will try and find out how to contact him.

I don't know if you are still looking for some of these information Doug, but using Martin Krejci's "sportscar race history form" will give you quite a complete overview of the sportscar racing career of any driver you can name : http://wsrp.host.sk/ . A search for good ole Bernardo Taraschi for instance gave 30 answers, while one for Geoff Brabham brought up some 150+ races. Hope this helps.
