    That's really sad. My nan used to be Keith and Mikes' book-keeper when they had their original workshop in Edmonton, and she always speaks so fondly of the pair of them. She has tales of how they would all go out at lunchtimes in these souped-up Ford Anglias, and occasionally bump into Lotus people coming up from Cheshunt and have traffic light races with them.

    My condolences to his family and friends.

    Phill

    The best company history is probably here It's divided into decades. They both worked for lotus first.
    :worship: their development of the twincam
    :worship: their development of the BDA series and onward
    :worship: their development of the DFV

    -long before the word cosworth appeared on production Fords and Mercs. Legendary engineers. Keith deservedly retired about 15 years ago at 55?
