Introduction The first race I attended was at Ndola in Zambia where Mum's boss raced a Mini. I was taken to The Race of Champions '73 - '75, and in ‘76 to the last GP on the Nordschliefe. A succession of cheap cars allowed me to head for the Silverstone 6 hour races '78 - '92, Le Mans and the British/European GPs '79 - '83. In ‘85 a buddy Sven phoned up and asked me to crew for his #44 Ray's Toys Capri in the Willhire 24 hours, I spent the weekend lugging jerry cans and holding a fire extinguisher during pit stops. By ‘87 Sven was clocking up wins in the Alfa Sud series 1st in a 33, destroyed at Castle Combe, and later in a Sud . In 1990 I went racing in a 2CV 'LYLLYK' highlighted by the Mondello Park 24 hours. From ‘92 to ‘03 I lost track of racing until blogs on yahoo sports by Jerry Bonkowski, awakened a passion for NASCAR. Thanks to Rowdy.com I went to the April ’09 Arron's 499 making a 7000 mile round trip, quite a contrast from the BTCC at Brands Hatch .
