Prince Bira’s 100th


I received an email from Mike Day up in Suphanburi to remind me of another famous driver who has gone to the great racetrack in the sky.

“Greetings from the rice paddies of Suphanburi.  You may recall I last contacted you shortly before Christmas 2010 to report the death of Ceril Birabongse (Prince Bira’s wife).  I wondered if any of your motoring enthusiast readers (who are perhaps VSCC members too) are aware that July 15th will mark the 100th birthday of Prince Bira?”  (Thanks Mike.)

I think we should all raise a glass for Sir Jack and Prince Bira, two drivers who made their mark in history.
