    The late great gentleman of motor sport, Tony was a close friend of mine.
    We all miss him. Unlike so many who have followed he was a genuine person with no pretension to being great. Which he certainly was.
    Hopefully he will be remembered for his great achievements.

      Dear Mike,
      Thank you for the update. I have always had a soft spot for drag racing. I had the pleasure of photographing Don Gartlts twice.
      Regards Martyn.
