For those coming to Race Retro, the Lister-related celebrities that will be on Paul's stand (D60, Hall 2) will be, amongst others:
Brian Lister (Founder)
Dick Barton (Chief Race Mechanic)
Colin Crisp (Race Mechanic)
Ken Hazelwood (Race Mechanic)
Norman Dewis (who needs no introduction and will be 90 on August 3rd!)
All should be available for signatures for those that want them.
Some of the people mentioned here will only be there on the Friday for the book launch ceremony which will be at 11:30am -
everyone is invited. Those above should also be around on the Saturday.
Oakfleld's will provide the Storm for display, Knobbly and Costin Listers are being provided by Derek Hood of J D Classics and a
Lister-Bristol by Stephen Bond. John Coundley owned and raced six Lister-Jaguar's and will also be present along with John Pearson,
his mechanic. Our own Ted Walker who provided many of the archive photographs (Ferret Fotographics) used in the book should also
be present and has a company stand at the show.
I gather some of Urs Schmid's 'Jaguar XK120 - The Anatomy of a Cult Object Volume 1', in both German and English editions, will also be available on Paul's stand, the first time they've been on display and available in the UK I believe.
And artist Paul Dove will have a nice 1/4 scale model of Mike Hawthorn's Cooper-Bristol on display on his stand - built by his father
in around 400 hours of work. Also some new JMH paintings.
