The 595 Abart variants of the Fiat 500 were twin-powered, as were the road cars.

The only twin I know in motorsport [apart from the Bargwanas it appears!] is well into his hobby. Which his twin sister is vehemently opposed too. Other than that they get on well!

No – Brigitte was born in 1959 and Damon in September 1960. However, in Life at the Limit Graham related that, at the F2 race at Roskilde the weekend before Damon was born, Reg Parnell got the race commentators to announce that Graham had just become the father of twins. This was picked up by the media, and messages and gifts suitable for twins started coming in from around the world. He and Bette had a terrible time persuading everyone that they really hadn’t had twins. Perhaps there are still sources out there claiming that Damon is a twin.  :drunk:

I would suggest that Alf and Harry are a bit older than that...

Perhaps early '40s?

I was born in 1941, Ray, and have known Alf and Harry since around 1960. They are about 3 years younger than I am.
