My home town is Pau, where the historic Grand Prix is held, it has a unique place in the history of motor racing. The name ‘Grand Prix’ was first used here to describe the race run through its streets in 1901. Over the years this unchanged circuit in the heart of the city has witnessed titanic battles involving Etancelin, Nuvolari, Fangio, Ascari, Villoresi, Trintignant, Brabham and Clark.
Lots of Aston Martins this year. And of course lots of Brits.
