"These pictures were taken in the early 1980s at the Richard Seaman Oulton Park Race meeting. It was owned by a gentleman named Bob Henderson, who was a great friend of the family.

Bob was a super chap and even found my Bentley for me. We all camped out for the weekend and had super evening entertainment the the marquee's. Bob is driving, giving my girl friend and friend their first ride in a 4.5 litre Bentley."
