The message below from the author is self explanatory:
" Tony Whitlock, an Australian Motoring journalist, has approval from Gloria Gardner to write the definitive Frank Gardner biography. Frank was adamant that no such book should be written while he was alive, but as one of motor racing's great characters and story tellers we now have the opportunity to do him justice. Tony is seeking input by way of anecdotes and photographs from those who can add to the FG story. In particular we are seeking to hear from people who were involved with Frank in the early years in Australia and the UK
Tony Whitlock is particularly interested to talk to Jon Leighton, Jim Russell, Roy Salvadori, Jackie Oliver, Malcolm Guthrie, Mike de Udy, Brian Redman, Sam Posey & George Bolthoff. Would also be extremely interested in speaking to anyone who worked closely with Frank Gardner that he has not spoken to which could include Aston Martin in the last '50s & '60s, The Jim Russell Driving School & anyone who may have had contact with him or raced against him during the 1970s in the UK & Europe. Equally of course anyone who wishes to contribute can do so via this thread or contact Tony directly on firstname.lastname@example.org "[/b]
To add to Frank's early years I have asked David Beard to post some photographs from Frank's first trip to the UK in 1959 I believe. These photos taken by Len Deaton have been provided by Rik Deaton.
