Re: John Sprinzel

A fulsome obituary in the Times today. Interesting references to Ursula Andress, Alf Ramsey, Tony Ball Jimmy Greaves, Graham Hill , Michael Crawford, the Beatles and the Stones. Oh and passing mention of his motor racing career!

Re: Someone's Birthday Today

“Went the day well” inspired by Shakespeare, Richard !!!, but used widely as an epitaph for the fallen. Perhaps not so apt for your birthday Bob.

Re: Mille Miglia - has a Morgan ever entered or competed?

I have a faint memory of a couple of Morgan aficinadoes driving a Sunbeam. Was it yellow?
Was it Clarke/Sebba?
Is there a photo of said pair leading a car driven by an ex F! champion? or were the cars stationary?
