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.
