My racing career began in 1960 with a car I built myself and ended in 2006 in an Alfa Romeo-powered Brabham BT23 open-wheeler. Across the years I raced and won in everything from a mighty 48-215/FX Holden that took 17 wins from 20 starts, to David MacKays immortal Ferrari 250 LM.
Bob Janes Brabham BTII won me two Australian Driving Championships. I ran Holdens first supercar and two Falcon GTS at Bathurst, crashed a Monaro 350 at Sandown Park, won in a light-weight E-Type Jaguar and raced many historic Ferraris in England, France, Monaco, Germany, Belgium and the USA.
These are the racing cars in my life.
