Re: Fathers & Sons

Still no fathers and sons have qualified on the front row and finished 1-2 in the race.

Donington Paddock 1996

25 years ago, this was the paddock at Donington Park minutes before the Morgans went onto the grid.

Can you name the drivers and others caught by the camera?

Fathers & Sons

How good was that with Richard on pole and William lined up next to him on the front row in their +8s. In the race, William took the lead and the chequered flag with Richard a clear 2nd. Superb. =D> I cannot come close with my highlight being the final of a table tennis competition and meeting my so...
