Roman Polanski stepping aboard a Motor Racing Stables Lotus 51 Formula Ford in 1968…

One of the great film directors of our time has had an extraordinary life full of controversy, see this link for a concise bio and filmography for you movie buffs;

That year he moved to Hollywood to make the psychological thriller ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ and then had the horrific experience of wife Sharon Tate’s murder by the Manson Family in 1969.

Quite how John Webb bagged him for the day who knows, no doubt it was a promotional coup for the category in its fledgling phase- 1967 to 2018 and still going strong! Long may it continue.
