I should like to offer my congratulations on your excellent recent articles on Ronnie Peterson and Gunnar Nilsson, as well as those on Hesketh and Beatrice. I had the privilege of meeting Messrs Peterson and Nilsson during my years as a pit marshal at Silverstone in the Seventies. Reading your article brought back memories of a better era in Formula One. May I hope that there will be more of the same again in future; a number of similar pieces would make an excellent book.
I thoroughly approve of your publication in its new form long may it continue, although I have noticed that all your correspondence is from men. Perhaps some things never change in motorsport.
I am yours, etc
