:clap:  :clap: Hi,all. The eeyore returns to TNF to invite you to stroll down memory lane in the company of The Midget and Sprite Club (North West) and Phil Bradford. We are due to listen to Phil's exploits and see some of his photographs at The Kilton, Warrington Road (The A50 south-east of J20 M6), Knutsford WA16 0PZ. We expect to start at 8pm Wednesday on 13th November. In case anyone needs reminding Phil has prepared and raced cars for many years and has many interesting tales to tell. Admission is free but a semi-naked lovely might ask you to buy a raffle ticket or make a donation to the donkey sanctuary. Alternatively, a fully clad lady of a certain age may well invite you to do the same. Please address any enquiries to eeyore48 on 07801333151.

 

PS Please tell Kingsleyrob that the A50 is not in Yorkshire and that eeyore48 has never misheard the name of or misrepresented any member of this forum. Er, except once. Or twice. :o  But Mr. Giraffe knew who I meant

I'd love to attend but it's a tad far to pop up after work from London. However, a report, if it's forthcoming will gladly be reproduced in Mascot

Some of Phil's non-motor sport related exploits are also worth listening to, especially his time as a factory trained Rolls Royce chauffeur & masterchef..... :smoking:

I can vouch for his culinary skills, but whenever I am his passenger, "Drive it like you stole it" springs to mind! :eek:

Phil discusses tactics with Sid Taylor while Nino Vaccarella prepares to climb aboard the Lola at Mugello in 1969.(Co-driver De Adamich shirtless in the background).

:up: eeyore 48 and the Midget and Sprite Club enjoyed a very interesting evening in the company of Phil Bradford, THE Giraffe and friend plus a few brave TR registered guests. Thanks to Phil and to Giraffe for their wit, wisdom and photographs. is it true Kingsley Rob is still tottering round Yeadon looking for Mr. Bradford? He should be told that road Leeds nowhere.

...."friend" was TNFer RS250 / Ian Shelbourne........Rob was supposed to be putting in an appearance after his radio show, but went one better than normal and didn't show at all.... :smoking:   

 

It felt rather like being at Mallory Park these days as the talk took place in the room where the Kilton Park GP circuit once lay....  It was an excellent evening, thanks to Phil & eeyore48. :clap:
