Ernie and Elaine with "Laurel and Hardy"

From Ernie:

"Sunday: We were at the track early as usual and had the best “porridge” at the Drivers Mess Hall… and tried “fried bread” (which is a slice of toast which is deep fried!!) and not very heart friendly, but oh so crispy. 

I went to the very spiritual “Holy Eucharist” Sunday Service at the track, as the small British Band in period dress opened with the playing of “Oh Danny Boy”. The morning was perfect with the skies so blue with billowy white clouds. There was Communion and ending with prayers for Phil Hill- a dear friend to so many and wishing him a safe journey home to his maker… and prayers for Roy Salvadori. 

It was a day to catch up as we had finished racing as we had a chance to talk to the many fans again. 

We had to drain the fuel and disconnect the battery to prepare the Old Yeller II for shipping to Sydney in a week. 

There was the Lord Charles March Prize Giving at the end of the day with the serving of Champagne and tea cakes… and such a perfect ending to a great weekend… could not be better.

        All of the major sponsors for Elegance, Style, and Excitement were there as Rolex, Veuve Clicquot, Maserati, Moet- Hennessy, and Rolls- Royce were visible everywhere. We had a team dinner at the Berkley Arms Pub and gave cheers for all… ah- it was as perfect as can be."
