I have a particular interest in visiting the graves of my heroes which tend to be mainly racing drivers or racing motorcyclists. These include Donald Campbell, Mike Hawthorn and Tom Pryce. Few are included on the Find-a-Grave website, something I aim to improve upon.
Walter Bäumer Hello Paul, I'm Hans living in Buende/Germany. Today I visited the grave of Walter Bäumer. Please correct the place of burial. It is not the town of "Bunde" but the town of "Bünde" or "Buende". The town of Bunde is another German town in the northern part of the country. Buende (Bünde) was the birthplace of Walter Bäumer (Baeumer) and he was burried in his hometown.
I recently visited the church of All Saints in Newtown Linford in Leicestershire and didn't come across John Taylor's grave anywhere in the graveyard. I think you may have got the burial location incorrect?
Georges Boillot Your information is incorrect. Boillot was buried in Vadelaincourt but was exhumed on 1921 and buried in Pere Lachaise in Paris. I have been to Vadelaincourt and checked the listing in the cemetery and he is definitely not there!
RE: John Hartle Maybe I should have marked them in some way when I posted them. That is my handwriting on the top of the picture and I have the original print and the negative is filed away somewhere. Publications have contacted me for permission to use the picture and offered a fee. The fee is not important but the use without permision is.
John Hartle The copyright of the picture of John Hartle on the Gilera at Druids Hill Bend at Brands Hatch is owned by me and was taken from my web site. I can't remember giving any permission for that picture to be published. Please either acknowledge my ownership or withdraw it from your web site.
RE: Peter Collins You are very welcome Paul. and i think it was only right for me to have sponsored Peter's memorial as our towns are so close. And i also know Peter' town very well. And it was such a shame he died so young and i have no doubt that he could have gone on to have been an even better driver. Take care Paul and have a great weekend to come. Jason.
