I’m a great believer that respect for and understanding of the past can be of huge value in shaping the future.

Last weekend, July 29th marked an emotional day: the 50th anniversary of the death of young upcoming racer Roger Williamson in the 1973 Dutch Grand Prix. And while the rain fell at Spa-Francorchamps, the weather gods blessed the small village of Arnesby in Leicester as more than 100 of his relatives, friends and fans gathered at the opening of a permanent tribute to his memory.
