Once in a while I receive a really touching email from a relative of one of the deceased riders/drivers shown in the Find-A-Grave website and today I received one from Mrs Ivor Cecco, the widow of Hilmar Cecco, who was the sidecar passenger of Florian Camathias. The outfit crashed on the last lap of a non-championship race at Modena, when it somersaulted. Ivor Cecco never re-married and only found the memorial page recently as she has not long been using a computer.  Hilmar was only 24 whilst Ivor is now a greay haired lady of 76. As is common in some European countries, Hilmar's grave in Switzerland was cleared away after fifty years.


For some reason it won't allow me to do a link, but have a look at Find A Grave Memorial #18347407.
