Tom Walkinshaw 1946 - 2010

Do you want to post a tribute about your favourite retired drivers, perhaps you want to discuss the rantings of the MIT (men in tweed). They thought they were safer when they retired, perhaps not mumblers!! How about a tribute to those that are not drivers but still in the game?

It is with great regret that we must record the passing of Tom Walkinshaw at the age of 63. Tom had been battling cancer for some years. ... alkinshaw/ ... 1946-2010/
