    My only real experience with Frank was in 1977 when he was giving me an advanced driving lesson in my 246GT at Calder.

    That was the day I learnt that I'm not a good driver, and the day I learnt that it's humbling to be overtaken by a girl driving a 180B.

    He was terrific.

    Years ago AT Calder a certain Lola F5000 owner the week before had = the lap record,this day he was off the pace,asked Frank what he thought "RHR shocker is f...ed" sure enough it was,that was from just looking at it go around a track.

    I,ve just remembered an interesting unintentional faux pas made by Black Jack in his recent ABC Aussie story.His parting shot was:I know how to beat them(his rivals)I,m going to out live the bastards.Woops!!
