So, just who was the first person to say, “Whet the flag drops the bullshit stops”?
In Modern Times (March, 1999) Simon Taylor credits Sir Jack Brabham. I have read (I forget where) the same phrase credited to another driver (I forget whom). Yet I have always thought that it was the work of Frank Gardiner.
So, does anyone out there know just who did first coin this immortal phrase?
I am, yours, etc. David Fisher, Fearnhead, Warrington
