John Cooper Fitch (August 4, 1917 - October 31, 2012) was an American racing driver and inventor. After the Le Mans disaster of 1955 (which he was an eyewitness to), Fitch became a safety advocate and founded the driver safety company Impact Attenuation Inc. He also managed the Chevrolet Trans-Am team for a while, and was the managing director for the Lime Rock Park race track for a number of years. He was often seen at historic events, even into his 90s.
