ok, this is total trivia, but I am always interested when different sources disagree. Sadly, I am also interested in trivia!
In the latest Classic & Sportscar magazine Mick Walsh states that Tim Birkin wanted to be buried with his feet pointing to the sea but that his wish was denied him because the Bishop insisted that all the graves be "kept in line".
Paul Kenny, in his biography of Charles Villiers ("The man who supercharged Bond") states that Birkin was buried "his feet pointing out to sea as he wished".
Does anyone have the answer please?
By the way, I am having real problems with the new Motor Sport archive that was launched a couple of weeks back. I cannot get the search to work. Either it comes up with 'no results' for information that I know is there somewhaere because I have previously accessed it, or it gives dozens of pages that do not contain the information that I have searched for. Am I alone? Am I missing something? I have emailed Motor Sports a couple of times since the launch of the new website about this but have received no reply.
