Some of the people who worked closely with Chris from his racing the obsolete front engined Maserati 250F to the end of his career talk about just how good Chris really was.
“I knew Chris was highly talented as a racing driver but I was absolutely blown away by what people who should know said – that Chris was as quick as Jim Clark! You’ll be able to hear the comments of the guys who worked with Chris and other great drivers.” – Murray Maunder, Producer.
