Rolf Biland (Sidecar Racer)

A conversation recently reminded me of the Swiss sidecar racer,Rolf Biland, one of the greatest sidecar racers of all time.

I wondered if he was still involved with racing. Does anyone happen to know?

Having checked the internet, it would seem that he may have retired from the business. After his racing career it appears that he ran a Karting business that failed some years ago.

Well I found this - is this the guy you meant? It looks up-to-date enough though no specific dates are shown.

That is the one I was looking for. I have now realised that there is an error with the link on Wikipedia.

It appears to be up to date, but as you say, the site doesn't give a clear indication.
