That may all depend entirely on one's definition of masculinity.

If it's just genitalia then Truman Caopte qualifies as "male".

If it has to do with bravery, strength, stamina or any of those other "manly" attributes ........

Last year at the Queensland Titles Rod Anshaw came back to sidecars after a twenty year absence. He brought his daughter as a passenger. Her first ever experience on a race track, on a sidecar.
Rod "dropped her off the side" during qualifying. With no serious injuries she was allowed to continue racing

In race 3 Rod (who was to his credit) just behind me missed his braking point. Completely. I know because he wound up right along side of me IN THE DIRT on the left hand side of the track.

Needless to say I am very grateful for the 4 LS front brake I have as I stood on the anchors and Rod and his daughter passed in front of me on the track and into the infield. (Instinct saved us from T-Boning them)









Before you see the next pic understand it was taken with a big telephoto lens from the pit area and the infield at this point is probably 60 to 70 yards across, so Rod was moving pretty fast when he crossed the track.








Luckily we have plastic barriers and a catch fence at that point. Beyond that is a concrete wall.

Luckily most serious injury was a collar bone.

We expect to see this team at the Queensland Titles again this year.

And I have had 3 female passengers and two males in my career. (Women generally make the best passengers.)

A LOT of the passengers on sidecars are women.

Men are generally smarter than that.

The virtue part is a frame of mind.
The actual part is testosterone.
