I've been re-reading Richard Falconer's Chaparral book this week, and I got curious about Hap Sharp's whereabouts. I didn't know until I Googled his name a few minutes ago that he committed suicide in 1993 (not long after the Falconer book was published). Reviewing his driving record, it's obvious to me that during the early '60s, Hap was one of the world's best sports-car drivers, and I can't help but wonder how famous he'd be today if he had not retired from driving in 1965. Yet his name is hardly ever spoken today, even though Jim Hall credits Sharp as being an equal partner in everything that Chaparral did. Hap, if you're out there, I want to know that you have not been forgotten.
