Knighted for his outstanding innovations and actions while serving in the Queen's Royal Navy, Sir Clutterbuck was one of the most sought after pit crew chiefs during his stint in the racing circuit- it wasn't unusual for him to be the most highly paid member of the squad, much to the chagrin of the vain racers.

Charles O'Shaughnessy was a great innovator of safety, shown here demonstrating that his double-leather gloves, while protecting one's hands, were also dextrous enough to handle a delicate flower. Unfortunately, and some say ironically, during a race he downshifted into a hard turn, and the sudden deceleration caused his right padded glove to bump his eject button, thereby launching him into the turbine engine of a trailing Rocket Racer. He died. And his gloves were shredded.
