So reading Nigel Roebuck's "Reflections" in this month's Motor Sport, he mentions Mario's trophy collection, with the Long Beach 1977 trophy marked "DUPLICATE - Original Stolen By ____________" and then claims libel laws cannot allow him to name the person. Nigel say" Think about it and you'll probably get it" - well I have, and I haven't got it! I thought probably Colin Chapman, but libel laws would not apply... can anyone point me gently in the right direction, without triggering an immense libel case/ A few subtle hints may suffice. I was a huge Andretti fan (still am) so I'm annoyed that I haven't twigged this one!

To WIN a race first you must cross the finish line 1st not 3rd. :eek:
