This is not an advertisement, but an astounded thank-you.
The other day I arrived home to find a package at my door. It weighed a ton. On opening it proved to be an amazing book called Lola T70 by John Starkey and Franco Varani.
To say that I was flabbergasted is an understatement. Why, I wondered, would anyone send me this magnificent tome?
Eventually I discovered some details, and three photos, of a Lola T70 which had raced in Western Australia, which I had contributed two or three years ago! Now all I can think is that if everyone who contributed on the modest scale that I did received a free copy, there must have been at least a million printed.
540 pages, almost all in colour, countless photos ( and I seriously will not try to count them!) and a detailed history of every chassis! I discovered things about our local T70 that never knw, like it was the Paul Hawkins car, not the Hulme Car, which I had always assumed.
I have inevitably lost the email address for Franco Varani, who I am sure contacted me some time ago. This is my only means of acknowledgement of this amazing surprise!
Thank you Franco! And TNF!

Coincidentally I bought the book myself a couple of weeks ago and I have to agree it is excellent.

Sounds like a nice surprise. Better than a bunch of bills.
