Another totally interesting day last Saturday.

Another totally interesting day last Saturday. I organised a visit for a small group to a secret Lotus museum where the owner is a Ronnie Peterson fanatic. We took Colin Crabbe with us as a treat for him. As mentioned on the last posting he entered Ronnie in an F1 March in 1970. With us also was Peter Bracewell who was mechanic on the car before he moved to BRM F1 for four years. So much to see and Colin was a joy to listen too. He is almost totally immobile but he does joke about it in an English stiff upper lip way !
