American motorcycle and car racing driver Erwin “Cannon Ball” Baker (1882-1960) was famous for setting a large number of point-to-point records under difficult conditions, mostly in North America, but also in Australia and New Zealand. Much of his driving was with Indian Motorcycles, which hired him as a sponsored driver between 1912 and 1924. His first record was set on an Indian motorcycle.
