For those who don't already know, Barrie 'Whizzo' Williams passed away very recently. In fact his funeral is today in Bromyard and there will be a celebration of his life for those who knew him in the BRDC Suite at Silverstone on the 29th Sept.

Barrie was the first person to win an international rally in a Cooper 'S' when he won the 1964 Welsh International Rally in his 1071 'S', 120MNP. He went on to great success in both rallying and racing.

Besides all that, he was just a 'great bloke' and a true friend to many. He helped many younger drivers and was always good fun to be with.

RIP Barrie.
