I was saddened to read the news of Paul Frere's passing.

He always dined at the same restaurant in Arnage as our group on a Friday night during Le Mans week, his air-cooled 911 always parked up outside.

I can recommend his autobiography "My Life in Cars" as a fine read.

Indeed, anything I've read that he's written is pretty damn good.

RIP Paul.

Very saddened to hear the - every year at Le Mans we would have a chat about the cars and his distaste for ballast. He was going to write a column for the mag last time I spoke to him.

He was not only a good writer but a jolly nice chap - the press room at Le Mans will be a little emptier.

The winner of the 1960 24H du Mans (with Olivier Gendebien) and co-writer of the annual has gone. It's a shock.
RIP Paul.

So sad. 91 years of age though. Such a full live.
He'll never be forgotten.

I just finished re reading for the umpteenth time his book 'Starting Grid to Checkered Flag' last week. He will be missed.

A thorough gentleman who I was very proud to have met in the ACO Club at Le Mans. When I apologised for disturbing him he said "After so many years, I'm flattered to be recognised". Typical of his modesty and charm.
RIP Paul

My only meeting with Paul was at LeMans,in 2005,I had been lucky enough to have been asked to drive an Aston DB2 in the Legends Race.Paul had been having a look around the Legends Paddock and came over to have a look at the car before qualifying.He said he would keep an eye out for me during the race.After a very hot race,I brought the car back to the paddock,and there he was,with a big beeming smile on his face,that he was there waiting is testament to the man's integrity. RIP Paul,and, thank you.
