Move over Button and Hamilton there’s a new(ish!) kid on the grid!
Chris Essex writes : In contacting OFs about the forthcoming West of England Supper I came across another OF sportsman to add to the Distinguished section of the website.

Ian Connell (R68-73) has been racing sports cars for a number of years and has a team called Connell Racing that includes himself and his two sons. I’m delighted to say that Ian and his sons have just won their first race of the year at the Rockingham Speedway circuit, in the six hour Fun Cup UK series.

For full details on Ian, his car and the recent victory click here. We wish Ian the very best for the rest of the series.

Another budding OF author launches his first book
Chris Shaw (K50-56) has just launched his first book, called "It's All Relative: Stories to Shorten your Travel Time". According to Chris it's available as a book (it will never need batteries), an Audio CD (hands-free listening), an e-book (will never clutter your bookcase), an audio e-book (an MP3 version to download) and as a flash drive (a really sexy way to have it all!)

They are a collection of quirky stories that have been especially written to entertain you on your travels. See his website for more details.

Devastating Fires in Victoria, Australia

Fortunately all those I have heard from are personally OK. Click READ MORE to read their responses.

STOP PRESS – 16 February 2009 I’ve just heard from Bob Munro (R56-60) with a fascinating tale of how he didn’t initially hear about the fires, even though he was in the state of Victoria! I encourage you to read his fascinating story and those of other OFs in Victoria, Australia.
