Hi All,
John was an absolute Gentleman, May he RIP
He was the guest of honour at Stafford classic show a couple of years ago
He made everybody welcome and made time especially for kids,
We saw him take away the barriers and "security" to let a lad sit on the MV and in the Ferrari so his Dad could take photos


John
