I just remember the quirkiness of WB's editorship. Who else would have put a photo of an Exeter Trial mud plugger on the front cover of an edition that covered the Monte Carlo rally and a South American Grand Prix?
That may well have depended on other forces. Some things weren't that straightforward, apparently.
I've surprised myself today by how much I've thought about WB's passing. I thought P0wderf1nger's remark: "I wonder how many forewords, how many reviews, how many replies to requests for help he wrote?" was very interesting indeed. Goodness knows. He really was quite prodigious and wrote for a number of other publications.
As just one example - and with absolutely no disrespect intended - I can remember an article in Mayfair magazine (sponsors of Tony Lanfranchi amongst others of course) on his favourite track, Brooklands. It was just four pages (with pictures) and I seriously doubt that anybody today could get even remotely close to the accuracy, level of information, conciseness and human and mechanical engineering interest he provided in that short article.
