There can't be many motorsport fans that don't have at least one of his books in their collection.

Is that Andy Z lurking in the background and sucking on a bottle of beer?

Sad news indeed.

A good spot - that is more than a passing resemblance and, if its not Mr Z, then his evil twin was there....

The picture of Brian was taken at TURN 10 Sebring .
So yes that is Andy Zarse in the Aston Martin hat.
Sadly Norm is no longer with us either.
As usual I would have met him and had no idea what an icon of the sport of Endurance Car racing he was. note to self: Must try harder.

Guilty as charged...

How sad, Brian was a lovely man and a wonderful writer. He lived not far from me,and we had a mutual friend. RIP.
