New article on Gordon Spice :

https://www.classicandsportscar.com/fea ... -greatness

He's really very poorly at the moment, poor Gordon he's really been through it and in my thoughts today.

Great read, was the Stan Robinson the same one that ran the FVA Unipower with John Blankley?

Not sure Gary I’ll ask Stan on FB. Gordon was gutted he couldn’t make Blyton last year and Chimpney but I spoke to him last week and sadly he’s very very poorly now, bless him. :(

It would be interesting to know.
Not good news that Gordon isn't well. He was great to talk to at Blyton a few years ago and shared some nice storeys of his racing ventures.

I was lucky enough to spend some time with him at Blyton and thought he was an absolute legend ... his book is a brilliant read

pic I took of him and Glyn in 2015

I’m still kicking myself that we didn’t record my interview with him in 2015. :(

Anyway, more on the Capris here -
