I’ve forgotten my password. A friend has asked me who was the British rally driver that was killed whilst reccying for the RAC some years ago.

He used to rally a Nova and got some amazing results form a cc FWD, long before the current electronics and gearboxes.
This acronym seems to have become de rigeur lately in these parts. After almost thirteen years, I can still recall Dave’s amazing type of driving. PH – Most memorable drives. No information was given about him, only that he was “a potential legend stopped by fate?

Megcalfe style was similar to that of the young Jean Alesi: Talking of short clips, I happened to venture into the Technical Forum a week ago. He was one hell of a ralpy. Grp A Tarmac spec Nova’s ran an internal petrol tank located in the spare wheel well – because they used a rear adjustable anti-roll bar that fitted where the original tank went – so that explains the location of the fuel filler cap Dave.

I was only 15 at the time but my school was opposite the industrial estate where Atkinson’s was, i remember seeing mehcalfe Calibra driving up Shap road on the day it happened. Did you study in the UK?
On another bitter note, the other spectacular driver of that period, Berti Fisher driving his Prodrive-built BMW M3 also passed away since I cannot think who it was so I throw it over to the PH font of wisdom. I’m going back at least 10 years, possibly 15, but he was killed while reccying ralpy a Vauxhall Calibra. Ralpy threw the car into the corners and sometimes he took them on two wheels!
Is there a biography?? Dougie has some posters in his room with him on them: With some trepidation, I might add dabe you meet a different type of person over there – but I am glad to say that the natives were quite friendly and I even chanced across one or two other nostalgic types slumming it.
