Re: Active support at Coniston 2010

Well Malcolm, you know the sort of things I've tinkered with, from spannering F3 cars, to driving old F1 cars and Edwardian chain drive monsters, while doing TV both behind and in front of the camera, etc etc etc, and if I am in the UK, I'm there!!!

Re: Technical Talk

Ken (and Lew') were an inspiration to me. I first met Ken as a fourteen year old, and wasn't patronised, or talked down too. Ken was very adapt at working out the level of those he was talking to, and then happy to interact with people on "their level", and yet still helping them understand. Lew was...
