Those were happy days, when we were ignorant and could indulge in our craze for cars without feeling guilty…
I seem to remember that Citroen were also involved , with their DS21. Minis, DSs, the sort of cars one came across everyday on the roads.

Paddy Hopkirk, a genuine, down to earth chap, and a total legend.

And that’s from my late father, taking part in a Sunbeam Rapier, and who swapped stories with him at that Monte Carlo

You’ve just been MADE to feel guilty by somebody else. RIP PH

Does this mean my roofrack is no longer under warranty?
Meant as light humour…RIP Paddy.
