St George's day



I thought that I was the only person to remember that Toby St George-Matthews had owned an F1 Cooper-Maserati. Marcus Pye’s Diary triggered a memory which explains why the name stuck in my mind.

In the 1960s I used what was then my only car, a 1934 Speed 20 Alvis tourer, for sprints and hillclimbs in the west country. At Yeovilton Sprint they lined up cars to start two at a time and in practice I was lined up alongside the Cooper-Maserati! Ridiculous but memorable.
