A Murray moment April 29 2016

 

Roger Smith, author of the newly published third edition of Formula 1: All The Races, had an encounter with Murray Walker at the recent media day for the Silverstone Classic. Murray, now 92 and still sprightly, caught sight of Roger’s copy of the new book and declared in full ‘commentary’ mode, “Is that an updated edition of that brilliant book?”

Roger took this admirer through all the new elements of the latest version of his magnum opus on Formula 1. Afterwards, Murray had this to say of the book: “I have derived immense pleasure from it when I have wanted to check something or remind myself about it when I have been preparing something to talk or write about… Your book richly deserves to succeed and I sincerely hope that it does.”
