Dear friends of Veloce Publishing,
It is with great sadness that I have learned of the passing of Christopher Hilton at the end of December 2010.
Christopher needs no introduction to anyone with even the vaguest interest in motorsport, for not only was he a great and hugely respected journalist, and a gentleman, he was also an amazingly prolific author of books.
I was honoured when he chose to come to Veloce with his book on the Toleman racing team - a subject about which he was passionate. His professionalism and enthusiasm shine throughout the pages of the Toleman book, as they do in all his work.
Christoper will be sorely missed by all who knew him, and I very much regret that I cannot continue our discussion on a future book project.
