Last post from previous page:

I was looking through the riding mechanics pages at Champ Car Stats, and I found a couple of funny ones. Louis LeCocq (also a driver), Cowboy O'Rourke, and someone simply known as "Gay." Hahaha....

Also I found out who Dick Raper is.

is this some modern day Cinderella story of 'if the shoe fits....', or some form of DNA testing

From the results to the IV International 12 Hour Race, Reims, 14th July 1957 – GT Cars....

#30 Dick Fitzwilliam/Robin Carnegie - MGA - 1374.134 GT1.6

So in Cinderella terms , ......

And now ladies and Gents, the question of the moment is clearly, not does the slipper fit, but if there is any truth in the rumour that the 'Dick Fitzwilliam?' :huh:

Will 'William Tell' of this '(h)arrowing' story?

I was reading the support category entry lists for the Bathurst 12 Hour and I found a driver by the name of Gregory Faggotter. Haha...

I was looking through some old Turismo Carretera stuff today, and I found a driver entered for one race under the pseudonym of "El Orangutan (The Orangutan.)"

Wonder how he came to be called that.

I was just checking something re the FIA and noticed on their website that the President of the ACA goes by the name of Didi. Bollecker.

We need to know these things..... did he, or didnt he?
