A superb recommendation "A Chequered Life", just bought and read.

Off topic: I'm currently reading an absolute belter- Alan Mann, A Life of Chance. I think the Lotus content is limited to the Cortinas and early Escorts but it is superbly written and goes on to the Cobras, Ford Falcons an the Sports-Racers.

Do 4 Sevens beat 4 Sixes? (I don't think anyone in the game is holding 4 Sixes.) That's a nice little collection, Pete! (I especially like the 18.)

Hi All,
Whilst having a clear out in my loft I came across some literature I got back in the day from Ian Walker Racing, I'd been trying to find it for ages so I could share it with you. It seems I contacted them a couple of times, once in 1972 when I had an S4 on Strombergs and then in 1976 after I got my Sprint.
I've copied the letter I received in 1972 from Ian Walker himself which I have copied for you to read, I've also copied the leaflet pages as well. Just note the prices!!!

I have some more leaflets from them which I will upload shortly.
I have just taken my Ian Walker Racing Sprint Head to AMAC in Northallerton for overhaul so will be great to see it when finished.
