Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  In the 1928 Six Hour Race at Brooklands, the Riley of Kenneth Peacock was in danger of losing its front number plate, punishable by exclusion. Instead of pitting, he sent his riding mechanic across the bonnet to fix it, while he kept up speed. As assurance, the driver held on to the mechanic‘s leg while holding on to the steering wheel with one hand. Surprisingly, it worked and the Riley went on to win its class. Those were the days.
