Joan - I'm unclear on the criteria for success you have (or have not) stipulated here, but others who have competed in both, with some success in at least one, would include:
Johnny Cecotto
Giacomo Agostini
Eric Offenstadt
Bill Ivy

(I suspect we've discussed this before, though, in another thread.)
