What a shame; I knew him well and liked him. I first met him when he was at Coldlharbour Lane, when I went to him for an engine for my DB4 (which I had bought without one), and we did business a lot after that. He remained the 'go to' man in Aston circles, helped me out on two books and will be missed. RIP and condolences; a great loss.

Seconded.  Absolutely.  Richard was a very well liked and very well respected figure in the classic car and competition worlds...

I didn't know him but saw him running the Nimrod , and Ecosse teams , the job was done with no fuss by a group of people who knew their job , similar to Joest and Kremer , RIP Richard
