Thanks, Mark . . . A New Hero for Me
In Response To: Great posting Jeff ()

Thanks, Mark . . . at the start of this little research project, I had relatively little interest in the Ronnie Peterson story. But the more I watched, searched and read, the more interesting it all became.

Yes, someone can become a hero to an enthusiast, 40 years after the hero has passed away.



: I was already familiar with Ronnie Peterson, being an avid F1 fan
: (and collector of one of the sources you mention, the old
: Autocourse annuals and magazines) but it was still good to read
: your take. In fact, it was Autocourse that got me into Heuer in
: the first place - at some point I need to sit down with the lot
: and look for Heuer wearers.
