Sixteen years... unbelievable. I know I'm a day early but I won't be able to do this tomorrow.
My memories of that day are still clear and strong, despite the passing years.
Still missed, God bless, mate.

I had the pleasure of meeting Paul a few times and remember the day vividly when the news filtered through at Brands. Great driver who would have gone on to much greater achievements and I believe would have given Mr Schumacher a challenge when he got to F1. A really pleasent person who had time for everyone.

I will always remember with great fondness seeing Paul and Derek watching practice at the 1991 Grand Prix. I was marshalling at Luffield In when they both came down and watched an F1 session. Luffield was not a great attraction so they spent all of their time watching the cars through Bridge. Senna came through on a very hot lap and was clearly fighting the handling of his McClaren. Paul looked over to his brother and then took a couple of steps across to him before embracing him in a kind of 'wow, that was scary kind of way.'

Shocking to think that he was dead just days later. RIP.

R.I.P Paul

The fatal meeting was actually the first I ever attended, so it's something I think about quite a lot. All I remember is him coming through Lodge in the lead each lap, and then not coming round at all. A tragic end to a bright career.

I was also one of those stood on the wall on the outside of that corner with both Derek, Paul and a reporter. I went to school with Paul and he was to most gentle guy you could have met. We had some great laughs through the years no more than on the trip to Silverstone that day. We stopped in a motorway services for breakfast and Paul being Paul he somehow dropped brown sauce in his lap. So off he trots to the loo removes his trousers washes them off as best he could, then stands there trying to dry them with paper. The ribbing we all gave him with scenarios of meeting Sir Frank Williams and Paul trying to hide the brown stain on the front of his trousers.

The real reason he put his arm around Derek then moved back that day was if you remember there was a gravel trap just in front of the wall. Pauls’ words that day was “I want to keep me good looks lets move”.

He’s sadly missed by anybody who had met Paul through his short life.

Unfortunately my memories of Paul were after his fateful accident. I clearly remember watching a tribute to Paul on TV quite a few years ago. (I'm not sure how long it was after his fateful season.)

I often wonder how far his talents would have taken him and was convinced from the tribute that he was a truly exceptional talent. I'm glad that I found this forum to express my thoughts

The tribute programme made the point of stating that no video footage was captured of the accident, this was incorrect as two video cameras captured it and the tapes confiscated for police/coroners investigation. I had the misfortune of seeing the footage it is not on the net and as far as i'm aware there's no copies.

teammoda has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Tragic loss and a major talent destined for F1.Would I be right in thinking that Paul not only won the race but also the british F3000 championship with that race even though he crashed.

He did indeed win the championship posthumously. In the 5 races he contested that season he had 5 poles and 5 wins.

I recall that by the final race of the season Julian Westwood was in a position to win the championship, but deliberately conceded a position at the race finish so as not to beat Paul's points tally, thus ensuring him a posthumous championship. Nice gesture.

This is not accurate it was Swedish driver Fredrik Ekblom who could have taken the title from Paul at Donington however he could only finish 4th. There wasn't any conceding any places etc it was won fair and square by Paul.

Derry Warwick

Pauls father Derry passed away on the 15th; back with his son Paul and wife Bea a good time must be going on up there

Yesterday was Derrys funeral; a wonderful ceremony to send off a Family man, a Friend, and a Gentleman.

RIP

Thundersports, of course you're completely correct. The hazards of relying on memory alone...
