  1. ~ RIP. sir. you’re an inspiration.

  2. I cannot think of John without it bringing a smile to my face, I was fortunate to have spent time with him and to have been touched by his enthusiasm.

I used only a small portion of his two hour interview in the Carrera documentary and we spoke about Corvette, Mercedes, Le Mans, the Mille Miglia as well as the development of his crash barrels. I always envisaged releasing the entire interview as its own show at some point. He was a fascinating man.
