Hello Bob,

Welcome back! Your name cropped up in a book I'm reading about the history of sports car racing and rallying in Canada, said you were driving a Datsun 240Z, very cool. Have you read; " The Chequered Past"?

I have found it amazing and fills in a lot of holes in the motorsports politics in the late 60's and 70's, of which I participated in during the early 70's. What a journey.

Take care,
Keith

Good to hear from you Keith. I have not seen the book "The Chequered Past" so I will see if I can find it.
