This site contains some memories and photos of my life in Motor sport
On holiday in Spain 1968 with Trevor Tompkins and Roger Williamson in the hat. The Comer Cob van had a Sunbeam Rapier engine with overdrive.
This rare photo of Jochen Rindt in a full face helmet was taken by me at Rouen on the 28th June 1970; he is driving a Works Formula Two Lotus 69 with a Ford FVA engine.He was killed three months later on the 5th of September at the age of 28 driving a Lotus 72 at the Italian GP Monza. At the time of this photo he was the undisputed King of F2.It’s one of my favourite photos.
