May I express to you, and particularly Bill Boddy, the sorrow I felt on reading of the death of Denis Jenkinson.
As a reader of MOTOR SPORT for over 45 years, I remember his reports with great pleasure. One of the earliest which comes to mind is of the epic struggle between Hawthorn and Fangio at Reims in the period when Grands Prix were fought by Formula Two cars; and of course who could forget his Mille Miglia with Moss.
I suppose he must have been slightly mad. Not only did he win that Mille Miglia but also a motorcycle World Championship, both as a passenger. Enough said.
Although I sometimes disagreed with DSJ on matters of opinion, as a reporter of motor racing in all its aspects he was without equal. MOTOR SPORT has not been the same since his writings ceased to appear.
