I've just had an interesting phonecall from former Team Lotus mechanic Beaky Sims. He has found a website called 'Those Were The Days' written by a guy called Tony Rudlin, who styles himself as a 'competitor, team manager, competitions manager and journalist'. Beaky was really quite upset as the story of the F2 round that year in Barcelona seems to be around 90% pure fiction! For starters, it's stated that the team mechanics flew to Barcelona from England...they NEVER flew anywhere as they were too busy driving the transporters with the cars and all the gear in them! Beaky says that he has never heard of the guy. Can anyone shed any light on this 'Tony Rudlin' guy? He seems to be a bit of fantacist.
Here's the link to the Barcelona story ; http://thosewerethed...elona-1968.html
