Ferrari evening with Piper and Attwood

On November 8 Dick Lovett hosted a special Ferrari evening in its new showroom just outside Swindon. We say showroom, but really it’s a Ferrari mecca.

As well as Peter Lovett talking to the crowd about how the dealership started, I sat down with David Piper and Richard Attwood to talk about their careers racing Ferrari sports cars.

It’s not the full recording, but it will give you a flavour of the evening. As always, Richard and David’s stories enlightened us on an era very different from today’s.

    …wonderful reminiscences…perhaps you could invite him on to the Podcast to complete the story from 1962 onwards… might need a couple of hours though….!

    I would love to hear the rest of it, the longer the better!

    Please can we have the whole evening in a podcast, need more Piper and Attwood! Your best podcast to date, also would be great to here what Peter Lovett had to say as well.
    Best Wishes

    Dear all,

    Sorry, but due to a technical problem this is the only part that recorded properly. We’ll set up a podcast with these two in the future as we only scratched the surface!

    Any chance of getting Mark Hughes into the podcast studio once the F1 season has stopped?

    Very evocative of a better time than now, I think
