“Professor Sid Watkins (R.I.P.)”

September 12, 2012

People often talk about legends in motorsport. Today, the motorsport world lost one of the greatest of them all – yet not a driver.

Professor Sid Watkins, you were a gentlemen and a saviour during a dark time in motorsport. I met him last year and had a brief chat about how far safety had come in modern motor racing and how now drivers step out once life threatening shunt.
The Prof was quaint and polite, putting up with my somewhat awestruck ramblings.

Remarkable person. The Prof will be sorely, sorely missed.
