Another brilliant FORC event
Caldwell was a brilliant raconteur regaling us with McLaren F1 stories from the 70s
Hunt,Lauda,Emmo all figured prominenty
The new film RUSH also where he was a sort of consultant !

AC with a fag on in the McLaren......40 a day man then


With Emmo and Teddy Mayer.
Apparently Emmo often used to doze off on the grid prior to racing

Here with Hunt..............tales of his life as a 'social animal' had us all in stitches

Their best podcast yet.  :up:  1.5 hours long.

 

What an interesting man! Plenty of scuttlebutt.
