Farewell Don Wright
Posted 21 October 2011 - 00:38
Don would be best known here for his Citroen Special, 1950s, and Lancia - especially Lambda. He will be sadly missed by many, many people. RIP Don.

That car he bought as an embryonic project from Bill Buckle, but he certainly built it into a durable and quick racing car which gave a succession of drivers a great time.

The VSCCA and Lancia clubs from around the country were represented, and some wonderful memories of Don, and his exploits were re-kindled. Some nice words by Peter Giddings [via email], and even the Citroen Special turned up for the occasion. We all felt a similar feeling.......a great loss, yet also an enormous gain from having known Donald Wright.

And I'm sure Don was old enough that a lot of his friends missed out, too. Was Bill Buckle present?

Sounds like you are one of the few who know how the "D" came to be in Dalro, Mick.

I seem to remember that the Citrone Special was having it's first outing after an accident at Silverdale, body repairs were not completed in time for this event.
