Why did you start? To get my Citroen Light
15 on the road - I needed a goal
Best Race Mallory Park 1984 - Royale RP27
(FF2000) in F.Libre. I came 3rd, got my lap time of
over 100mph, won the ladies prize and won £100
for best prepared car.
Worst Race Silverstone FF1600 in 1982.
Bright sunlight at start of race turned to
horrendous downpour. I knew I wa
s going to get hit - and I was, by a bloke called
Angel who flew over the top of me!
Favourite Circuit/Venue Mallory Park and
Types of cars competed/owned Citroen Light
15 in Classic Saloons, Royale RP 26 FF1600, Royale
RP 27 and 30 FF2000, Chevron B42 (Ex Keke Rosberg
F2 car) in Libre, BMW 2002 Tii and Citroen 2CV (UK
and Belgian championships)
Best car driven/owned Royale RP27 FF2000. My
Chevron B42 F Atlantic was lovely - just cost too
much to run reliably.
Funny Stories I've been called a gentleman
several times! At Snetterton I was once "the odd
man out on the grid" - because of whatever car I
was driving, not my sex.
Plans for 2003 Getting back into Motor
