Last year I submitted an entry to a competition run by the IAM to win lunch with Paddy Hopkirk.
Well apparently I won and it’s next week at Silverstone.

What shall I ask him guys?

Andy

Wow, What a fantastic opportunity!

Not an easy question though. Personally, I'd steer well clear of anything to do with 1966, headlights etc. And just hope that he has a few drinks & starts talking about what he wants to talk about.

All these old boys have a set number of stories that they have well rehearsed & can do pretty much when they are asleep. It would be nice if you could get a glimpse behind that veil.

Not asking much then :)

His 67 Acropolis win he is very proud of Andy. ;) I've been out of action for a while, long story, and he rang me to see how I was doing. A twenty minute chat and Minis and rallying wasn't mentioned, a personal record for me :!: :lol: :lol:
