Brilliant stuff; exactly what was needed (well maybe not 7) but you don't have to confine yourself to answering my suggested questions, of course.

I tried but it became too time consuming. Actually my bio is here:

http://www.nzmotorsport.co.nz/conten...t.cfm?id=11667

I agreed to do an update after each meeting but just realised the last was over a year ago.....

Ahhh, thanks Compte for making a bean- spilling start! Modsports in the 70s sound intriguing - one of the categories I'd love to have witnessed first-hand. So many great series and cars in the UK...absolutely no comparison to the scene over here.
Nürburgring...you're talking about the proper one, I suppose? When did you first race there? Any recollections of the original Snetterton, too?

As to le crackement de la résistance, hey that sounds, errm, thrilling, too, will mention it in my forthcoming book about the racing lives of 10/10thers. I'm sure you don't object.

Thanks, too, Roger Wills, for the biog link. You're only five bleeding years older than me, and racing fabulous cars around Europe every other weekend...where have I gone wrong??? (Mind you, I do set reasonable times in Frankfurt rush hour traffic, at least in my class of car) (lower class that is)

Looking forward to hearing from Iain, too!...and all the others as well. Pitiful reading, pahh...

SJWBallistic should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
For what it is worth my "racing" career is as follows:
I spent my formative years in a pushchair being dragged to hillclimb events with my father Roy Wright as he began hillclimbing a 500cc Cooper during the early 1970's (at a time there was nowhere else to use a 500)
This was then followed push starting same said 500 as I grew up. By this stage racing was in the blood and 500cc circuit racing was now available.
When I finished university I was promised a go in the car and my racing began in 1996 on the Silverstone Stowe circuit - qualified last finished 5th.
A few more 500 races and then I aquired a F750 DNC which I rebuilt and ran unsuccesfully for a 18 months.
In 1998 I acquired a Van Diemen RF82 which I ran in F4 events for many seasons and how I came to know Delta.
I still have the car but both time and money prevent me do many races in a season and so have this year reverted back to the old 500's.
Next year a full season of 500's hopefully in the Mk6 Cooper that dad acquired in 1973 and has always been "this winter's project!!!"
Favourite circuit - Snetterton the only track I have won at (it helps make you like a venue)
Sorry if I have bored anyone

Seen that as well,but it is linked to www.historicmotorsportconsultancy.com which is like I said,owned by some guy in Brno who is impossible to get hold of.Check the above on a Whois site.
