It had been some considerable time since the College had heard from one of her most famous sons, former Grand Prix racer Jonathan Palmer (A. 1969-74). In fact, to my recollection the last visit he paid to the school was when I had invited him to talk to the school’s Auto Club back in 1982! We were therefore particularly delighted when Jonathan contacted our President to invite the Association to enjoy a day’s hospitality at Brands Hatch. We were offered a large suite high above the main startline straight offering a magnificent view of every corner of the circuit.

18 June 2006

It was a sweltering November afternoon just before the long awaited rains. I stepped out of the office and looked up the mile long jacaranda lined straight road that led out of the village to see if there was any sign of the Tuesday and Friday bi-weekly bus. As there was no great plume of dust in the distance that heralded its arrival I went back into the Office.
