Barrie Maskells achievements are certainly not forgotten !
For the last 10 years the Barrie Maskell trophy is awarded by the Classic F3 Association to the highest points scorer in the 1600 category .
At last Saturdays BRDC meeting we had guests Bev Bond and Dave Morgan for the F3 race . Also spotted was Charles Lucas and Sir Jack was on hand for the prize giving (our Association Patron )
I was particularly pleased because its Bevs old March 713M that Son Chris races ,so now we have a photo of Bev reunited with his car.

Who are the other two gents in the photo? I doubt that they could fit in the car.

The one on the right is in fact Chris , the driver and recipient of the Barrie Maskell trophy in 2003 and leading the series this year as well .The old fellah on the left was one of Chapmans men in the mid '50s who can fortunately still wield a spanner . He is incidentally Chris's father too.

Excuse me if I appear dim, Maurice, but the way the above reads to me is that Chris Bond has two fathers. So if it's his dad Bev in the car, is the chap on the left Chris's stepfather?

And what of Barrie Maskell? Am I to presume he's no longer with us?

Sorry about the confusion Twin Window.
Bev is no relation to us ,its just that we run his old car and reunited them at the BRDC 500 raceday at Silverstone.
I'm the old geezer on the left and Chris is my son . We were both born in grow bags ! It just shows ( I hope ) what you can do if you really want to .

The last time I saw him was in Mexico ten years ago. He was engineering the Herdez F3 cars, IMMSMC.

Could someone give me an update on Barrie Maskell? Is the trophy bearing his name a memorial one?

I am informed that Barrie is entering a Porche race somewhere later this year. If I find out more ,I will post. A previous post correctly stated that he fell out of a tree and lost the use of his legs.
The team Dave Morgan worked for in the States apparantly disbanded but he is again working in the States. I'll try to find out more
Bev Bond has a small business specialising in sports clothing embroidery.
Nice picture of Bev in this weeks Autosport clutching his British Empire Trophy which the BRDC reunited him with at Silverstone last Saturday.

I hope Barrie Maskell is able to realise his ambition. When I was racing, we were often at FF2000 meetings, and Barrie was racing a Sparton. As ever, it was an underfunded effort, but through his undoubted talent the car was running near the front. Barrie was always very affable and willing to give advice based on his many years of experience. If someone could get him to post here, I bet he would have some great stories to tell.
