Look closely, and you can still see Bruce’s name under the tape.  This M14A was but one of many wonderful cars in the Gurney parade

  1. Wonderful absolutely wobnderful

  2. Orange McLaren is definitely cool, just as other cars, really. What’s missing is US presidential chair for Daniel Sexton, think he would’ve done an interesting job there. Looks like wonderful festival.

    When I was very young Stirling Moss was my hero and I travelled to see him race whenever I could and over time others came into the select group of drivers whom I admired. Dan was one of the first and so was Tony Brooks. I have black and white photos of both of them in their prime which they later autographed for me. I was there at Goodwood in 1959 and to see them reunited in that Ferrari was magical beyond words. I had to swallow hard.
