Good to chat to Mr T.
:
Yep, Paul Ziller in his blue TR2 (154 - see one of John's earlier photos). Heading into Luffield, Stub axle snapped and literally launched the car into a roll. Paul was able to extract himself but was a bit shaken and he was taken to medical centre where he was given a clean bill of health. TR, unfortunately is a real mess. There were at least 3 other competitors in close proximity at the time and it's amazing that they all seemed to avoid it.

Yes, good to catch up, John. Great photos, as usual.

Glad to hear Paul's ok, have spent some time with him in recent years getting his engine to do what it said on the tin It came in. A good guy, with more enthusiasm than is healthy for most people!

The 25 & 171 Morgans pictured above seemed to spend most of both of their races battling each other in a good clean manner.

Thoroughly enjoyed the day - good racing & good weather.
