Graham Robson RIP
Legendary classic engineer, author and presenter dies aged 85
You probably have one of his books on your shelf. In 50 years he produced more than 170 of them, being one of the most prolific authors in the classic business. His writing was always crisp, clear and to the point, befitting a man who was a motorsport team manager, engineer and rally co-driver in his time. He entered journalism in the Sixties with Autocar and, after a short spell at seat-belt maker Kangol, he went freelance with a plan to write books that would appeal to the growing classic car movement. That led to him becoming probably the most well-known and best-loved of all historic motoring authors. He never retired and was working on a big project at the time of his passing. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
Graham was closely associated with the Triumph marque, among others.
