Sad to record the death of Roy Salvadori last week at the age of 90, barely three weeks after the passing of his 1959 Le Mans-winning Aston Martin team-mate Carroll Shelby.

Roy and his wife Sue had lived for many years in some style in a flat overlooking the start/finish straight of what was, for one week of every year, the Monaco Grand Prix circuit.

Since decamping to Monaco in the late 1960s they were elegant, well-groomed and stylishly tanned regulars in the Principality’s pit lane, both looking enviably youthful for their age.
