Dam saw it on the news earlier, not good that all these people are dying from respiratory problems, something they frankly shouldn't be.

As with Paul, had the pleasure of meeting this chap and watching a few races many moons ago from the old top of the hospitality units at Brands, you always used to see him (and Martin Donnelly Sr) at the Festival each year turning up like old pennies, such a genuinely nice bloke.

Very sad news. A whole generation is leaving us. I was reading about him a few weeks ago. I learned that he got an advice from Mike Hawthorn to get in a car. Initially he didn't give much attention, but some time later he found himself driving for Reg Parnell.

I love that footage of him driving his Cooper T53 on French streets.

RIP
