I have just spent a good few minutes savouring the impeccable eulogy by Doug Nye to an unforgettable character. It surpassed what could reasonably be expected of anyone. It showed a real love of the subject by the writer. Not a fading, changeable love, but the genuine heartfelt love of one man for another. I am sure that Tom Wheatcroft was difficult, but what a man! I can only offer the following thought: we shall not see his like again.
Thank you, Doug, for showing us all once again why Motor Sport is number one.
Tom, I salute you. Doug, I am thrilled to have read your work.
