Dick Johnson famously once said that the only thing you get from looking back is a sore neck. Not all retired drivers subscribe to Dick’s philosophy on the past, though. Indeed, some do see worth in the little things, the flotsam and jetsam items of memorabilia from their time in the sport – the newspaper clippings, the contracts, invoices, letters and even (in the pre-internet age), the telexes. Documents which, of their own, might seem of limited value, but which in fact tell a story of their own. And for us, the fans, these items are little snapshots that provide a wider picture – a glimpse of the inner workings of a star racing driver and his race team. We are fortunate that Allan Moffat is one such driver who does value the ‘little things’ in a life in motorsport. Over the years not only has Moffat shown a decided reluctance when it comes to filing old paperwork in the proverbial round file, but he has also meticulously catalogued so much of it in his personal scrapbooks. AMC was privileged to take a peek at some of Moffat’s personal memorabilia collection.
