The last car was debuted in 2010 and Rob finished racing late in 2012 season - sold the car to Lee Warner 290

Dont know dont know dont know , might not b stock ? Might by an imaginary generic hot rod body , dont know . Car looked good if nowt else

Well as Rob must be havin a non "tinternet" evening - as a now hibernating member of team 258 I can answer this- - it was in fact a fabricated by Rob replica of a Ford Y body - we were all quite proud of the end result - more than a few people were convinced it was bodyshell - in fact it even "fooled" the curator of the Coventry Transport Museum when we had it on display there- asking us where we had sourced the body from - and not to get any ideas of sneaking one out for a future project !!

In fact Rob had to make it twice as the car failed technical scrutineering when new- on the angle of the front rollcage pillars (still a sore subject with Rob)- so we ended up cutting it off and start again

what a night of real stockcar racing  - the friday before WF day has now become a must do event - thank you NL and NZ drivers for showing me what UK F1's used to be like - howling fast stars negotiating lots of out of control cars resulting in track blockages and rollovers...... just brilliant . Saloons were mental too

DoD - special mention to H36 but has to be H61 - I think he upset a few of his fellow countrymen along the way

Excellent interview thank you both for your time and effort with this

- Rich and his family clearly love their racing - they along with many others are the backbone of F1 stockcars

Thank you again Brian for taking the time to do these interviews

I too think Rich is a very underrated driver that just doesn't seem to get the "rub of the green" when it comes to luck

A few questions from me  then-

Having served quite a long "stockcar  apprentiship" - with budget and available time in mind where does he see his racing career peaking - as a regular star grade driver or a good blue roof?

Also if an opportunity arose would he prefer to drive for someone else (sponsor / car owner) or get more satisfaction from doing it all yourself ?

What task do you dislike the most back in the garage i.e making up wheels & tyres  , cleaning brake calipers etc.?
