1972 Jo Siffert died at Brands Hatch

I was there that day - in the distance we could hear the cars one by one go quiet - the commentary stopped - I felt sick - obviously something terrible had happened. An Ambulance rushed by and we were told the only driver in it was Jo.

Then we started to leave.

We went away quietly with hushed voices. Driving home we heard on the car radio that there had been a fatal accident at Brands Hatch and that Siffert had been killed.

I went to see the skill and the technology - never to see injuries let alone death.
