Readers’ Comments

(from small initial shipment)

Nigel Mills:  Brilliant read, well worth getting.

Paul Easter:  Greatly enjoyed, so many reminders of the past.

Paul White:  Fantastic reading.  Evoked lots of memories especially from the Bob Chapman story.  Even learnt some new historical details.  Well worth it.

Don Barrow:  Another brilliant read from Peter Robinson – enjoy.

John Dando:  Brilliant, thoroughly enjoyed it.  As I was Secretary for the Rallye Bristowe at the end of the ’60s and in the ’70s, the names you mentioned meant so much to me.  I am still vice Chairman of Tavern Motor Club and I am flattered at the number of our members or ex-members that have been mentioned – at least 10!!

Terry Kaby:  Fantastic book and a really good read.

Kevin Gormley:  Brilliant read as ever.  Well done Peter
