I started my interest through playing with Dinky Toy GP cars at age ten and a 1954 Castrol yearbook that my father gave me, with a picture of a South American driver on the cover......can't remember who it was, driving a streamlined Mercedes to win at Reims.

Since then reading magazines and books, continuing to collect 1:43 scale toys/models have increased my enjoyment. The more I learn , the more I enjoy F1.
