Good as Gould

Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

Dear CR In the Novem­ber/de­cem­ber is­sue of Classic Racer, you cov­ered the ca­reer and suc­cess of Rod Gould. He, along with his mum and dad lived next door to me and my par­ents, and Rod was born there. I was al­lowed to hold him when he was a few hours old, me be­ing 12 at the time. I spent many hours play­ing with him, and pushed him miles in his pram. My hus­band and I watched him start his ca­reer from the very be­gin­ning, my hus­band help­ing in a small way as we were bik­ers too. I have a scrap­book of all Rod’s events, good and not so good, which I trea­sure. We did cor­re­spond but lost con­tact over time. I am now 86 years old and I would just like him to know I am still here and think of him, es­pe­cially on his birthday. Eileen Bon­ner

Dear Eileen, Thank you very much for your com­mu­ni­ca­tion and your mem­o­ries of Rod. It was a plea­sure to read and I’m sure that he has also en­joyed read­ing this let­ter in CR. Best wishes, Tony
