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.?

must agree with all above

upon our first visit to Earl St - through the "turnstiles" and...... what a AUTOMATICALLY DELETED WORD hole greeted us- after the second race my mate said I'm gonna stand somewhere else it's bl**dy dangerous here - if a car doesn't come and get you the dodgy stadium electrics will..... don't tread in any puddles they may be live !!  BUT we loved it- the racing was fantastically terrifying for drivers and spectators alike

hi Roy

Used to mechanic for Coventry's finest fence tester Rob Harrad (258) - had some great times as part of that team and Brandon was at the heart of our racing -whatever else we did the car was always ready for the 1st Saturday of the month

The mechanics race was the startrax promoted xmas meeting 2012 I think (may have been 2011 tho)

Looking Forward to the Guinchard writeup/pictures especially with the 258 connection

Thanks from me Roy - the piece and pictures of Brandon made me feel sad once again for what I and many others are still missing .... an event at Coventry stadium

- those pictures evoked so many memories I can relate to practically every one of those shots- from queueing up at Den's bar hoping to be served before the rolling lap, running down the back pit road with extra water cans to cool that engine down - and out on track in a mechanic's race staring at turn one thinking "will I make it unscathed to the back straight" to spending time in the first aid room (not for me thankfully) - "You don't realise what you have ..until its gone " rings true for me here
