Neville & Richard Hay

What are these two up to these days?

Both Richard (1986-1998) and Neville (1986-1988) used to come out to Bathurst each year to commentate on the Bathurst 1000 on Channel 7, and where always an asset to coverage, and Hay Fisher Productions was responsible for the filming of the European Touring Car Championship until it's end in 1988 and (i think) the BTCC until 1987.

Richard did TVR Tuscans last year and raced the Morgan at Le Mans

Neville's still commentating, and producing a variety of informative and enjoyable programmes focusing on motor racing history.

I spent a hilarious morning in his company back in May at Silverstone, and heard some wonderful racing stories which sad to say are far too blue to ever make it to one of his documentaries.

Hay Fisher is still one of the biggest motorsport TV companies in Britain, along with BHP (which seems to be on a downward spiral) and Granada which has most of the big contracts now.

Does he really smoke that much? In his commentaries, you can often hear him *snip snip* light a cigarette, then there is a little pause as he takes a draw, and then he exhales through his nose while he talks on. Quite funny sometimes.

Yes Neville does smoke that much. As a budding commmentator, I pestered Brian Jones to let me help him at Brands Hatch. He agreed at the Ferarri festival where he also introduced me to Neville Hay.

Lovely bloke with plenty of anecdotes. Certainly let me know who to seek help from & who to steer clear of, and with his help I managed to let his old mate Tony Smith let me sit in his Maserati 250F, my favourite F1 car ever.

I never realised that TVR racer Richard was his son though.

A favourite quote from Radio LeMans '98/'99?

Has anyone seen Neville this morning?
Hindhaugh 'I saw him at about 1 O'Clock this morning calling for another bottle of white which is never a good sign'

Yes Ghinzani, I suppose was responsible for the Governor of Santa Fe's charred tennis shoes! I think he should make me a freeman of the Province or something in return.

I certainly remember Neville's commentaries for Radio Le Mans with some fondness. When giving rundowns of the positions, he always seemed to miss a number out somewhere!
