    Default Paris 1972 .....

    Second place in 72 was taken by Spalding & Percival in a Merc powered Molinari. I remember making my way through the pits after the race and I just happened to come upon Bob & Tom and their wives. They were kind of huddled together and were talking quietly. They quit talking when I arrived, but I had heard just enough to know what they were discussing ….. protesting the race results! After several minutes of back and forth conversation, they decided not to challenge the results.

    Tom Percival was a commitee member of the RYA in the UK he new the rules inside out he had a reputation of objecting anything that would put him further up the leader board.In the UK he earned himself the nickname of ( Percy Protest.)But was well respected as a top class racing driver by all.

    Default Barry Had OMC Power First!

    Two things I noticed about this picture. Barry had a single Evinrude before he had a twin Merc. And his number was 335, so maybe he was trying to steal my #35 from me when they changed the system.

    #380 is Ed Lane running an 18' Single Engine glass Molinari, with twins.

    Number 35 was never near and dear to me. 19-C was and is always going to be in my heart. #9 was a good OPC number for the Hill Family!
